White Listing Rights

I think that "probable cause" and a warrant for phone records needs to be established...

Perhaps a better way to deal with surveillance and information gathering of all sorts is to require a warrant no matter what. We will still have warrants rubber stamped, but there should be no possible case of the judiciary or other oversight bodies not being aware of what is going on unless a law is broken. It is a simplistic and perhaps absurd approach, but it certainly removes ambiguity.
