And going with what Chris said, if you really have stuff that's that important, you should have it encrypted heavily anyway.
Your missing the point. They have the right to completely invade your stuff. I don't have a problem with them going through my luggage. In fact the last time I was in Cancun I was pulled aside and they did a luggage search. There is absolutely no reason they should be allowed to access your cell/laptop etc. That's complete bull shit. They can tell its not a god damn bomb by looking at it.
Its the equivalent to going into a home without a warrant. Its not right in anyway. IMO its like a sobriety check point. Ever look at the results from those. Generally a hand full of Dui's then numerous tickets and citations given out. Its all a big scam with a nice coating to let it pass. Yes were checking people for Dui's. Why do they need to see my license and insurance card? O yes thats right to see if I have any warrants and if my shits legit right. But wait wasn't the point of this to see if I'm driving drunk?
This country is full of a bunch of pussy's anymore. And the end result is a load of bs that we have to put up with. Are world stood still when terrorists hit the twin towers yet its day to day life for them. Now were blowing the shit out of there whole country. For the most part there just people trying to live like you and I. There are always going to be bad eggs yet everyone suffers because of them.
Who honestly feels threatened to see any justification for laws like this. Its dumb ass laws like this that keep me from even going to Canada anymore. I shouldn't need to go through crap like this just because I want to go up to there casino for the weekend.
Stuff like this has kept me in this country for the past few years. I don't feel like going to the airport and going through a bunch of bs just to go fly somewhere. I don't feel like having people rummage through my personal belongings.
Were do these laws end. Next you'll see state to state border patrol. You'll need a special permit to leave your home state. Then they'll have checkpoints setup to prob you from head to toe to make sure your not some type of threat.
