    They also need to get rid of section 213, which allows "sneek and peek" searches without informing an idividual of the existence of a warrant for months.

    Also, all of section 215, which allows the perusal of an individuals library records, as mentioned in Kathianne's post, should should be revoked. In addition to library and bookstore records, it also allows examintaion of medical, financial and sales records by law enforcement agencies...ALL without probable cause.
