Maze,
You are clearly missing the point.
Did you know the IRS has a rule that they can use ILLEGALLY Obtained information against you?

I used to be you! (Since I don't break the law, what do I care!)

Here is the simplest example. Given JUST the data the government admits it collects from Cellphone data...
I can geofence rich neighborhoods, and houses, and EXPENSIVE hotels nearby. I can now calculate who is having affairs.
Where they live, who they are having the affair with. Where both people work and live. In Bulk, in MINUTES.

Now, I knock on your door, and I confront you, and suggest your wife need not know, if you DONATE a reasonable sum to my political campaign, or whatever. (Having an affair is NOT ILLEGAL). Being extorted is. But you are powerless. BTW, they know enough to destroy your career. (FWIW, I've seen this very tactic, and years long legal fees sponsored by our own government used).

How about framing you for a crime you did not commit. But they used your cellphone data (In advance of trumping up the charges to put you in the area, where they knew you had no alibi).

This data can be used to solve crimes, or to implicate people. Our constitution is SUPPOSED to protect us.
It does not! Because they don't have to WIN the lawsuit. The person I know, did NOT lose the case. But they lost MILLIONS and had to step down from their position.

And how about CA... They "accidentally" published FULL ID information on all concealed carry people (I think in one county). Addresses, DOBs, License #s, and type of weapon.

Think LONG AND HARD... Would you be comfortable knowing that ALL of the information about you, that is stored on your computer, in your emails, including Bank Account #s, ids, ssn, etc. Were available for sale? Along with your Cell Phone data?
