    well that is the right way to go about it. the prosecutors should know that already.

    ...i agree twitter did what any phone company should do although many of them folded and gave custy info up without court order. quest was the only tele company at the time to refuse.

    What's the point? I'm sure there's a clause in the Patriot Act that would allow the feds to just seize it, declare the situation a threat to Homeland Security, visit the snot-pickin' teenager's home, toss his house, anally-probe him, lock him up in Guantanamo for 30 days, file a rendition order to send him to some Eastern European gulag and we'll never see him again.







    What?







    This IS me on decaf! :pissed:

    i agree with you too because this is such a cut and dry deal now since both sides of this general issue have already been publicly stated regarding other instances. the cops have to get a warrant, and the ISP or Twitter/Google/etc have to refuse so the courts have to decide each case individually. there has been so much stated in public already about these kind of incidents that each side knows their part. if Twitter agreed without a fight it would hurt their public image; if the cops went for the warrant immediately it would hurt their image (if that's possible) because they might appear abusive.

    its when one party doesn't follow the rules that they should make the news now.

    I would have thought Mike Tyson having a Broadway show would be the false story.

    Unfortunately that part is true. He paid for it all himself.

    Or that Tyson would be the threat in a theater.
