Because he apparently doesn't know what the constitution says!
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A state legislator says he's confident of the legality of police searches of computers of sex offenders even after their sentences end.
Senator John Waterman (Contact) of Shelburn, says the bill is a way to protect children from sexual predators. The Indiana Civil Liberties Union filed a federal lawsuit last week challenging the constitutionality of the law.
Waterman's bill originally had nothing to do with sex offenders. But late in the session, a conference committee inserted several provisions - including the ones dealing with computers.
Starting July 1st, the law will require sex offenders enrolling in the state's public registry to submit e-mail addresses and user names for instant messaging, chat rooms and social networking sites. Offenders who provide that information must sign a consent form allowing searches of their computers or other Internet-enabled devices at any time.
- Sorry, I would not sign a "consent form" when I do not consent to the illegal search of my machine without a warrant... If you do sign it, make sure you put "UNDER DURESS" in big bold letters next to your signature.
