@alegalnerd @CStolfe @CrimProfessor But that's a policy argument claiming to be a constitutional argument, I think. That is, if you think a legal rule gives the govt too much power, it "threatens the security of the people." If you think the rule is a good rule as policy, security of the people isn't threatened.

@Url_Giddyyin @CrimProfessor Well, I don't know enough about you to say if this is the dumbest thing *you* have ever written. But I don't think it makes sense, FWIW.

@Url_Giddyyin @CrimProfessor So requiring a warrant to do this wide-ranging surveillance is the answer? How is that not a general warrant?

@CrimProfessor In particular, proposed solution is to require cops to get warrants to do this wide-ranging surveillance. By its own logic, wouldn't that be a general warrant the Framers condemned? If warrantless cell surveillance is like a general warrant, how can a warrant req avoid that?
