Feingold Introduces Bill to End 'Sneak & Peek' Searches
Sen. Russ Feingold has introduced a bill in Congress to end the end sneak and peek searches authorized by the Patriot Act:
Section 213 of the USA-PATRIOT Act, the provision of that important statute passed in the wake of the 9/11 attacks that has caused perhaps the most concern among Members of Congress and the public. Section 213, sometimes referred to as the ``delayed notice search provision'' or the ``sneak and peek provision,'' authorizes the government in limited circumstances to conduct a search without immediately serving a search warrant on the owner or occupant of the premises that have been searched.
What's wrong with sneak and peeks?
