Sean Larkin: ‘Very Difficult’ to Balance Not Infringing on People’s Rights with Looking Through Social Media

‘Every one of these kids has multiple social media platforms’

LARKIN: "Exactly. The day of the digital social media, I have teenage son and daughter in college. Every one of these kids has multiple social media platforms. And just even from us in law enforcement when we’re doing criminal investigations and looking at people’s social media for our own investigations, we’re investigating shootings and things like that. There are thousands of pages of data for one search warrant for a Facebook. As you said it is how do we, without infringing on people’s rights, get into these type of things? It’s very difficult."
