I'm shocked that Lance or someone else didn't jump all over this...

WASHINGTON — Federal agents may take a traveler's laptop or other electronic device to an off-site location for an unspecified period of time without any suspicion of wrongdoing, as part of border search policies the Department of Homeland Security recently disclosed.

I'm assuming since it's only part of border search policy, they're talking about coming in from out of the country, but still. That's some major BS.

Old news and yeah, it sucks. Some businesses have sued over it, when their employees have had their laptops (with proprietary info) confiscated.

I think the customs agents really just want to get at the porn that's on people's laptops.
