Judge says it's OK to use your seized phone to impersonate you and entrap your friends

"A federal judge has upheld the practice of police using seized phones to impersonate their owners, reading messages and sending entrapping replies to contacts in the phone's memory, without a warrant. The judge reasoned that constitutional privacy rights don't apply to messages if they appear on a seized device -- even if the messages originated with someone who has not been arrested or is under suspicion of any crime"
