So forgive me if I don’t drop the party balloons…

From CBS News:

Police may not generally search the cellphones of people they arrest without first getting search warrants, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled Wednesday.

In Texas, the police can get a search warrant with a phone call.  They don’t have to go to court and present any evidence; they just call a judge, he rubber-stamps their request, and they are free to do whatever they want.

It takes a matter of minutes.
