The ACLU is engaged with an attempt to get the Michigan State Police to come clean on exactly how often and why they are utilizing a new technology that can actually extract everything off of your cellphone in 90 seconds during a routine traffic stop. Clearly, the 4th Amendment is being violated here. The device is made by CelleBrite.

Here is the link to the Channel 4 website that aired this story in Detroit.

Here is a link to CelleBrite and their UFED ( Universal Forensics Extraction Device ).

This is outrageous! Talk about Big Brother! If they stop you and ask to see your cellphone, refuse! They cannot do this without you willingly submitting your device.

Here is the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers,
and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be
violated; and no Warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported
by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be
searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

You can go here to the government printing office and read much more about the history of the 4th Amendment.
