What happens when you hand your phone to the cop? Do you know consent to a voluntary search?

This is rife with issues. A cop cannot search your phone without a warrant. Once you relinquish control and voluntary give up your phone what recourse do you have if they start searching it? Cops are known for not giving a damn about privacy rights.

If your rich you don't have to raise kids. You hire undocumented workers to do that for you. By the time they are 18, you wonder who the strangers are in the house. And all I can say fuck CPS. No one knows how to raise her children better than their own parents. I would certainly not want anyone to instill values into my children other than me.

If the finger printer reader is anything like the iPhone 5s+ then I am in trouble. I cannot unlock my iPhone with my right thumb print and have to use my left thumb and that stinks to be me because I am right handed. Guns are pretty safe and have been for a while. Kids who get accidentally killed by the parents' guns have irresponsible parents. If I mishandled a gun while I was growing up I got quite the whipping to be taught a lesson. I guess you cannot whip children without being dragged to jail. Funny how children are out of control today.
