Comments: Cash seizure is a thing - maybe this picture will convince you

Most Americans seem more concerned about their status on Facebook than their civil-rights. As of 2014 "police nationwide have seized $2.5 billion in cash from almost 62,000 people without warrants or indictments under federal civil asset-forfeiture laws since 2001. The laws allow police departments to keep up to 80 percent of the cash they seize"

If you are going to make a cash withdrawal from your bank don't bring your cell phone along. Metadata is used for everything from tracking individuals to targeting drone strikes.
