Letters to the Boston editors, April 27, 2012
WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE . . .
Regarding the online follow-up to your "Hunting the Craigslist Killer" story ("When the cops subpoena your Facebook information, here's what Facebook sends the cops," April 6), it's almost laughable that people get so upset about electronic privacy when the government can search your car, containers, and property outside your home without a search warrant. With a warrant, they can search your home. They can seize your computers and everything else you own. The government can even physically invade your body and force you to give a blood sample against your will. But you all throw a fit when they can uncover whose Facebook wall you posted on and what sort of naughty things you might be saying in a chat room. That is plainly absurd.
