ACLU Suing San Francisco PD Over Alleged Illegal Search of Activist's Cellphone

Warrants are NOT optional


The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit on Wednesday claiming that the San Francisco police conducted a search of an activist's cellphone without a warrant.

The civil suit claims that two San Francisco police officers violated Bob Offer-Westort's privacy when they searched his cellphone after he was arrested last year for protesting a proposed city ordinance he felt was unfairly targeting homeless people.
