WARRANTLESS ACCESS BY POLICE TO YOUR INTERNET SUBSCRIBER INFORMATION

Should police be able to gain access to your information held by your internet service provider? “In its decision in Spencer a year and a half ago, the Supreme Court stated that a warrant is needed in all circumstances except where: 1) there are exigent circumstances, such as where the information is required to prevent imminent bodily harm; 2) there is a reasonable law authorizing access; or 3) the information being sought does not raise a reasonable expectation of privacy.” Police don’t like this. Is it really so unreasonable?
Parliament should uphold the Supreme Court ruling that prevents law enforcement from obtaining specific subscriber data on internet use without a warrant
