Michigan state police (or should we say police state?) have been using a handheld mobile forensics device to steal information from cell phones belonging to motorists stopped for minor traffic violations.

You have to actually give them your phone for them to be able to plug it into the machine. Why would you give them your phone without a warrant in the first place?

State police Detective I know very well, has never seen one in use anyplace in the State himself either, I just asked him.

My neighbor in Michigan (a lieutenant in the local police) once told me the police departments did NOT have quotas either. Guess it is just a matter of linquistics and learning to ask the right questions?

Why would you step out of the car, or open your trunk? Because one way or the other you will be forced to do it.

Why do we tolerate any of this is the real question. Same with TSA feel ups at the airport. The Bill of Rights has been shredded.

I would like to take a moment to thank our police officers for keeping us safe every day. I'm glad I don't have to do it.

I have no problem stepping out of my car if asked.

Won't do that though without a warrant, even though I have nothing to hide.

Not always.

This I will agree with. Most of what the founding Fathers envisioned has been tossed into the trash bin through the years.

I do, every time I see my friend, as well as the cops who live on my block.

If you use On Star do they plug into the ALDL plug to collect that data?

Also seems I've heard only Apple and drodes products useing google can it be done with.

Talk about violation of privacy! Hide the phone. OR don't do anything illegal.

If asked to step out of the car your supposed to hit the auto lock button on the way out and just leave your cell phone on the front seat. Now if it was me, I'd just leave the keys in there as well, (can always call triple a later). They're supposed to only search you car if they smell pot smoke or can visibly see something illegal and they can't take all day about it either, i.e. detain you for 5 hours waiting for the dope -sniffing dog to show up.

And by all means repeadetly ask them "Am I free to go?"
