So, those of us that agree with it, are you implying we're criminals with
something to hide? Just because I, and the others, and Lindsy Evans (the
girl the case was about) just don't want our privacy violated, we're hiding
crimes? Perhaps it's not that we want to hide something, but that we want to
keep something no one should be able to take away.
