The reports said police are able to get a warrant in 15 minutes. Where might that be. Here in NYC the police need to personally respond to the DA office and then meet with a Judge during BUSINESS HOURS. How is a reporter allowed to say such nonsense unchallenged? At least try to do your job and walk through the process with a member of the police department before you make such a unqualified and reckless comment. Actual time is generally 8-12 hours. No biggie unless its your life or the life of someone you love who is depending on dissemination of the information on the phone. Ask your self why Murdoch people felt phones were such a great source of info- because they are. People will have the quality of police protection that they demand. However I hope they can survive it.
