Laptops subject to search

THIS just in from the "Well That's Just Fucking Great" department. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal has ruled that the contents of a laptop can be subject to search on entering or leaving US borders without reasonable suspicion.

The part I have bolded is especially important. We're not talking about searching known criminals, or people who are exibiting suspicous behaviour. The court has decided that the customs guys can go through the laptops of whoever the fuck they feel like.

This so-called "land of the free" is getting closer and closer to the fascist police state every day.
