Yes, but only for high crime areas and potential terrorists.

@9N7BC8TWomen’s Equality from New York answered…3mos

only if the NSA has valid information that indicates the subject is in fact a suspected terrorist. It should be closely monitored so that innocent citizens' privacy & rights are not trampled upon.

@9N39JHMRepublican from New Jersey answered…3mos

No, only with a warrant showing probable cause of criminal activity, or consent.

@9MMZ2BVSocialist from California answered…3mos

@Jason-KolLibertarian from Utah answered…3mos

Yes, as long as these tactics are effective in stopping suspect terrorists

@9L4ZM63Women’s Equality from South Carolina answered…3mos

No, because now this seems as if it's an invasion of privacy. Only do this if it's necessary, only to track criminals.

it depends, if there are credible threats to the safety of the public but don't take data from everyone wholesale

@9HRTGQ4Republican from Nevada answered…3mos

This should be case by case. If it’s something simple, no. If it’s for national security, it can in no way lead to an arrest for something not pertaining to the initial arrest warrant.

@9HN3PRTVeteran from Kansas answered…3mos

The NSA only does this for those suspected of terrorism and not every day citizens

Yes, but not the conversation unless a landline at a prison, courthouse, capital, etc.

@9G4NJKBSocialist from New York answered…3mos

No, this is an unconstitutional invasion of privacy, not to mention the potential racism and sexism that could result from this.

@madysen21Peace and Freedom from Utah answered…1mo

I don't think it's a big deal, but I think it is a waste of money considering how ineffective its been in the past

@9QSWWWCPeace and Freedom from Florida answered…2mos

no, theres should be no private property, and public matters should not mix with individual matters.

@9QGPDXBGreen from Washington answered…2mos

They need to be regulated regarding "rubber stamp" warrants and have transparency and notice that is required in normal criminal cases.
