Noble... but ultimately a fruitless effort when you have an administation that won't even respect the sovereignity of other nations. Not to mention the administration's attempts to declaw and muzzle the citizens it serves.

Won't even respect the sovereigntiy of other nations.

When have western nations ever done that, or any for that mater. It still is important because you can mire police and agencies in lawsuits when they break law. Which is an inconvinience for them and they often do follow the law at times because of that.

Until the police and agencies pay for the lawsuits it doesn't really hurt them at all. So they might have to waste a few dozen man hours on the lawsuit. But so will you, and unlike them you don't get to say "whatever, it's tax money anyway" whenever you're told to chalk up a few million in damages.

This has an immediate impact as it would make evidence gathered illegally inadmissible in court. Defense lawyers will give no quarter with laws like this.

I don't even know what the "declaw and muzzle the citizens" comment has to do with this story. I mean it's a certifiable fact but not relevant to the government's internal effort to curb its overreach. This bill only forces law enforcement to get warrants to use flying drones and has nothing to do with the populace at large.

You don't even know what you don't know.
