Government access to wiretapping and eavesdropping information : an argument for statutory reform in Florida
Both federal and state statutes prohibit the intentional interception, use, or disclosure of an oral, wire or electronic communication yet an exception to this general rule is that a law enforcement officer, or someone acting on behalf of a law enforcement officer, is allowed to intercept. a conversation without a warrant when he is a party to the conversation. This practice is a violation of rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution, specifically the Fourth Amendment. Society should be able to prosecute the guilty and protect the innocent with methods that do not produce violations of civil liberties. To protect the guarantees of the Constitution, changes must be made to current law to preserve the right to privacy.
