We certainly live in an age of high tech communications. Most everyone has a cell phone with the ability to make calls, send emails and text message.
Now, law enforcement wants laws that would require cell phone carriers to store every text message from every customer for two years.
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."
Big Brother, or not?
