|A: In general, the police can search you and your belongings only if you are under arrest or if you consent to being searched (there are rare exceptions, such as when you are entering Canada). You are never obligated to consent to being searched. If the police begin to search you, however, you should not try to stop them since this may result in you being charged with a criminal offense.|
News Flash Police can now search any device (that's not password protected - as if a password will help us:rolleyes:, they know their way around that one) if you have been arrested. Yes, they can search our cell phones, ipads, computers etc.
We have NO rights - this is B.S.
