Bellwork Friday, December 5 If you could make ten copies of yourself, what would you have each of them do?
Think about it… What do you think the Fourth Amendment concept of “unreasonable searches and seizures” means??? What do you consider to be “unreasonable”?
Can Your Phone Testify Against You? Read and analyze the article “Can Your Phone Testify Against You?” for the central idea and various claims.
What are the article’s central ideas? 1) The recent Supreme Court decision that police can’t search cellphones without a warrant is an important ruling that could impact future privacy rights/cases. 2) U.S. courts are still struggling with a number of other questions raised by modern technology.
What does Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. mean when he said a visitor from Mars might think cellphones were “an important feature of human anatomy”? Cite evidence to support your answer. Meaning: People use their cellphones almost constantly. Evidence: cellphones are a “pervasive…part of daily life”
Analyze the argument that digital information on a cellphone is different from information in books or papers. What information does the author use to support this claim made by privacy advocates? *Cellphones and print records differ in the quantity of information stored. *Cellphones can record “things simply not available in the physical world.”
3 Possible effects of Riley vs. California??? *Police will probably have to get warrants to search laptops and tablets as well. *The decision could lead the courts to rule in favor of greater digital privacy protections in the future. *It could have implications for lawsuits challenging the government’s widespread collections of Americans’ phone call data.
“The Right to Be Forgotten” What is the purpose of this section? *The purpose is to demonstrate that courts around the world are trying to figure out how individual rights apply to digital technologies.
Using Multiple Sources How does the cartoon on pages support the article? *The cellphone is the witness in the courtroom and is telling explicit information.
Writing Assignment Read the sidebar “Digital Docket” about technology issues that the courts are grappling with (p.16 of the magazine). Choose one issue and write a paragraph describing how you would rule. Use details from the main article and/or the sidebar in your response.
