jcstearns:

"If the police arrest you, do they need a warrant to rifle through your cellphone? Courts have been split on the question. Last week the Obama administration asked the Supreme Court to resolve the issue and rule that the Fourth Amendment allows warrantless cellphone searches."

A few weeks ago, in the wake of the Granite Mountain Hotshots tragedy in Arizona, Instagram’s blog highlighted Gregg Boydston, a wildland firefighter whose field photographs give a rare glimpse into the life of those who run toward the fire. But I still wanted to know more, so I called him up.

"You have to become comfortable being uncomfortable," Boydston, 25, explains.

He is in the midst of his second fire season and his first on a hotshot crew — an elite team of highly trained firefighters. The days are long, stretching from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. or longer. They cut fire lines, burn backfires, and mop up hot ash piles smoldering in the undergrowth. Then it’s back to camp for dinner, chores and maybe, but not frequently, a shower.

No answers yet in arrest that never should have happened

"Let’s stop here and be clear about the law. It is the right of any citizen, journalists included, to record or videotape police activity in a public location. Mandi Wright never should have been arrested."
