Michigan State Police say they are not abusing technology that snoops into cell-phones

Michigan State Police appeared in from of the state's Ethics committee, attempting to defuse controversy that they are extracting data from smart phones during traffic stops. These extractors can pull up texts, pictures, and recent calls. Police say they are only used during major cases involving serious crimes. The ACLU filed requests inquiring on how the police use this technology. Michigan police say it is too difficult and expensive to fill the ACLU's requests.
