    So wait, let me get this straight, if you smell of dope or weed a cop can't search your car? And if they ask you if its ok to search it and you say "sure there's nothing" but when they find the stash its violating your rights? I don't really understand. And as an extension wouldn't you say that an officer can search your phone if there is cause to believe there's child pornography on it? And if you don't have child porn on it, big deal! OMG he saw those embarrassing sexts you sent to your girlfriend! BIG DEAL.
    It's actually scary how willing you are to give up your basic rights.
    We're all just toymakers in the game of life.

    How am I giving up my rights? If you've done nothing wrong then why are you afraid of a cop searching your phone?

    good gosh how hard is it to understand what he's trying to explain!?

    Let an officer strip search you and take off all your clothes on the highway if that would be his method of choice if you have nothing to hide. And you have to do it with no if, ands or butts (even tho you would be showing a full moon, pun :/ )

    Oh and to add to that, they have to do a cavity search on you. At this point if you have any question, think carefully and Im sure you can put the piece of the puzzle together. Might be a harsh analogy, but its the same principle and point that guy is trying to make.

    I think someone has misread the article. It does not say cops would disable a recording app.

    Maybe this article doesn't quite articulate what's going on here, but the information is presented in such a way that one would have to assume that the police in Arizona have a bad habit of acting unprofessionally, or even illegally, and these apps make them nervous because their power over any situation they might encounter may be reduced, at least to the point where the citizen they're dealing with is in full control of their LEGAL rights, which if you do any research you'll realize that these are the same rights police officers are trained to talk you into giving up, even if you never had the intention to do so.
