END DRAGNET WARRANTS THAT TRAP INNOCENT NEW YORKERS
To prevent police from invading our privacy, warrants are supposed to be narrowly targeted, specific, and based on probable cause.
But law enforcement officers use digital dragnet warrants to invade people’s private information simply because they were at a particular place during a specific time frame, or because they entered certain keywords into a search engine. This practice places hundreds or even thousands of unsuspecting and innocent people in the crosshairs of law enforcement.
TELL YOUR LAWMAKERS: Our participation in digital life should not automatically open us up to pervasive police spying.
