  • Of course it should!

    When the twin towers were attacked on 9/11, the government immediately cracked down. In reality, the government doesn't care about your personnel business, they just care whether or not you plan to blow up a building. Unless you want more mass shootings or killings, i see no reason that anyone should object to this.

  • If it a matter of public safety

    Yes, the government should be allowed to collect and store any data that is taken through cell phone usage by United States Citizens that are known to be involved in criminal activity. This is a tell tell sign that you may be involved in other illegal actions and you may need to be monitored. If you do not wish for someone to hear what you are saying you may not want to say it on the cell phone

  • Yes the US Government be allowed to collect cell information of those involved in criminal acts.

    The United States Government should be allowed to collect and store cellular information and data of US citizens that are known to be involved in illegal criminal activity. Under current federal law the collection of this meta data is legal without obtaining a search warrant or the oversight any federal court.

  • It's violating our personal privacy

    Its not fair, how would the government like it if we looked at their personal info also but yet we don't. Our privacy is ours such as their privacy is theirs and the reason they mostly want that info is to sell us products or control us because then they know what we like and they use that against us.

  • It is just waste of our privacy and our tax money!

    I am working in business that also has to handle personal data. An dit is highly regulated area. So why is it that NASA doesn't have any regulation on how they collect and handle these data. There is a vast variety of tools how data can be captured and scanned without being actually collected. That is absolutely sufficient to fight any terrorists.

  • No, the government shouldn't collect cellphone data from innocent people.

    I do not believe that it would be right for the government to collect data from cell phones on everyday citizens if said individuals have never been known to be involved in any criminal activity. I think that such a thing would give the government too much power and can be dangerous.

  • No, I don't think the US Government should be allowed to collect and store data on cell phone usage from US citizens who are not known to be involved in criminal activity.

    I think the Government should only be collecting information on people who they have reasonable suspicion are involved in terrorists or criminal activities, I think it's a deep invasion of citizens rights and freedoms when the Government is collecting information on you without any reason to believe your doing anything wrong.

  • It's an aggregation.

    No, the U.S. Government should not be allowed to collect and store data on cell phone usage by U.S. Citizens who are not known to be involved in criminal activity, because they can use that information in the aggregate against Americans. Even Americans who individually aren't doing anything interesting should have the right not to be followed as a group by the government.
