Senate bill rewrite lets feds read your e-mail without warrants

If this isn't a Civil Rights issue, I don't know what is.

I'm not against Law Enforcement reading the e-mails of criminal suspects, if they have a warrant. The whole idea that they could go on a fishing expedition and surreptitiously read e-mails without judicial over sight is abhorrent. This is still the USA, or what is left of it. No excuse of terrorism, etc is good enough. We, don't need a secret police in the USA. It may be too late though. Things like the Patriot Act and the recent NDAA amendments may have already put us across the threshold.

A Senate proposal touted as protecting Americans' e-mail privacy has been quietly rewritten, giving government agencies more surveillance power than they possess under current law.

Its like the newspeak from 1984, the bill thats supposed to protect our rights, actually takes them away.
