IRS: we don’t’ need no stinking warrants

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has claimed that agents do not need warrants to read people’s emails, text messages and other private electronic communications, according to internal agency documents.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which obtained the documents through a Freedom of Information Act request, released the information on Wednesday.

In a 2009 handbook, the IRS said the Fourth Amendment does not protect emails because Internet users "do not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in such communications." A 2010 presentation by the IRS Office of General Counsel reiterated the policy.

No, the constitution and liberty are not under attack.  This is right or left this is ever political power out there these days. It’s been going on for a while now. 

But in 2010, a federal appeals court ruled that police violated a man’s constitutional rights when they read his emails without a warrant.

Take the courts and we are done.
