4:46 pm
command devices inside a home where a man was killed. police in arkansas month that amazon echo as part of their investigation but amazon has declined to provide the data citing privacy concerns. our legal analyst joins us now on the phone. so police have the device and have gotten some information but they want to check to see what if anything the device may have recorded around the time of the murder maybe an accidental recording. should they have access? >> if they get a search warrant and a judge approves it, absolutely they will get access to it the big if is if they can get a search warrant. a search warrant requires probable cause and requires the police investigators to go in front of a judge and ask a judge to review whether they in fact have probable cause to issue the warrant. >> here is the amazon is saying. they are not commenting on the specific case, that they did
4:47 pm
issue a statement, amazon will not release customer information without a valid and binding legal demand properly served on us. amazon objects to overbroad or otherwise inappropriate demands as a matter of course. they want to search warrant, as you mentioned. >> and i think they are absolutely right. look at it from the other side. assumed the police want to search your echo. you have done nothing wrong but they have a suspicion. not a reasonable one, but a suspicion. without a warrant they go to amazon and amazon gives that information up. you would be chagrined to say the least that amazon is doing this. i think amazon is doing absolutely the right thing. police have proven time and again that when they search, sometimes they go overboard, beyond what the warrant requires. can you imagine what they would do without a warrant?
4:48 pm
this is a safeguard we are guaranteed in the united states constitution. they can't just search us as citizen, they can't search devices without a search warrant, usually. i am all on board with amazon doing what they are doing protecting their consumers. they are not saying they won't, they are saying have a judge review it and then with illegal search warrant we will give you what you want. >> i want to switch gears and talk quickly about dyllan roof, the young man found guilty of killing nine black worshipers at a south carolina church in 2015. representing himself in the sentencing phase, today he told a judge he did not plan to call any witnesses or present evidence to ask a jury to spare his life. what do you make of that? >> he might be smart as a fox and during that because the jury will look at him and think number one you look at that type of crime. they have found him guilty. you can't be in your right mind although legally saying because
4:49 pm
you knew right from wrong the jury is going to look at him and say he is not putting a defense on, not doing anything, i think will make it harder for the jury to bring back a death sentence. remember the number of people he killed? probably but i actually think this is his best shot to prove to the jury i am crazy enough to represent myself and i'm crazy enough not to put a defense on so do you really want to kill me? he may not be thinking those things, i am not sure he is smart enough to do that, but given what he is doing there may be some brilliance at a certain level. >> we will see what happens in the courtroom. as always thanks for joining us. the raiders unplanned quarterback transition is in progress, as they get ready for a huge game in denver on saturday. matt mcgloin the starter after
