"Privacy and Text Messages" Article Response

This article is about the issue of privacy rights to the ever-growing communicccation of texting. A crimal lawyer named Hanni Fakhoury, from a civil liberties group called the Electric Frontier Foundation, talks about how US courts are debating how limited cellphones should be private from the authorities. It then explains a Rhode Island case, where a cop examines a text message of a stranger's phone. The text indicates that the phone's order had something to do with a murder. Although this is solid evidence that the examineation of texts done by authorities could be effective, I believe this still is an act of invasion of privacy. It should only be aloud if the owner of the phone is suspected of a crime in the first place. Oherwise, I see it as an unconstitutional act that would be unecessary to have enforced.
