Just when you thought Republican led state government could be relied upon to protect your rights, think again. A new bill being proposed before the Ohio House Transportation, Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee (SB 5) gives law enforcement access to cell phone location data without warrants in emergencies.
However, the law does not provide sufficient protection from the provision of such information to law enforcement in non-emergencies. Further, it may provide a financial incentive for cell phone carriers to provide such information – as much as $2200 per “sale” to police. -You know what to expect from Leftist Democrats. Do you support a party because you have a dim hope they might do the right thing as opposed to always doing the wrong thing?
Pretty lame, Republicans. Pretty lame.
