(Washington, DC) -- The Supreme Court considers cell phone privacy Tuesday. The court will hear oral arguments in two cases about whether police can search the cell phones of people they arrest. That would include call records, emails, texts, photos and videos. Critics say such searches without court warrants violate personal privacy. Law enforcement officials say smart phones are essentially computers which are being used to conduct business by criminals, including drug dealers and violent street gangs.
