Check this story out about U.S. courts considering the legality of laptop inspections.
Not quite sure how I feel about this one. I wouldn’t want anyone opening up my laptop and start snooping around. I don’t have anything to hide but just the principal of it. I don’t agree with the statement in the article that “a computer is just a container and deserves no special protection from searches at the border.”
To me the computer is just like my home, if someone wishes to search it the best have a warrant or something.
On the other hand an officer found child pornography while performing a search.
I agree with the statement in the article that “a search should require reasonable suspicion.”
