    So I would say to the close of your second paragraph that the SCOTUS does need to rethink the Katz test. The "reasonable expectation of privacy" should be enjoyed among those who are not suspected of any crime. If one is not a suspect then there is no need to vacuum any and all information on an individual.
    when one is a member of groups this society has deemed perpetually suspect even when there is neither evidence of a crime nor any indication of intent to commit one?They, essentially, have had their "reasonable expectation of privacy" lowered to nothing. In our outrage at this high tech gutting of the 4th amendment we should not lose sight of the fact that the longstanding low tech methods have not been laid aside and their continued utilization does far more damage to citizens than NSA data collection has to date.

    Fear doesn't just breed incomprehension. It also breeds a spiteful, resentful hate of anyone and everyone who is in any way different from you.
