    Cops to Congress: We need logs of Americans' text messages

    AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and other wireless providers would be required to record and store information about Americans' private text messages for at least two years, according to a proposal that police have submitted to the U.S. Congress.

    CNET has learned a constellation of law enforcement groups has asked the U.S. Senate to require that wireless companies retain that information, warning that the lack of a current federal requirement "can hinder law enforcement investigations." They want an SMS retention requirement to be "considered" during congressional discussions over updating a 1986 privacy law for the cloud computing era -- a move that could complicate debate over the measure and erode support for it among civil libertarians.

    I hope it doesn't happen. I don't want anyone having a log of my texts. I don't even have anything to hide, either. I'm just not comfortable with it.

    Surprised they haven't already given the patriot act and all. By no means should this be allowed without a warrant which of course is based on some kind of evidence. I know I sure as hell don't want cops reading my sexts to my g/f. I know for a fact that cops do go through your cell when you get arrested and there's nothing you can do about it. I know drug dealers who have been arrested and get random texts from unknown numbers asking them to meet them places. You'd think these guys would switch numbers after that happens.
