This how how a police state gets started
Warrants and subpeonas are supposed to be issued by judges. Or at least that's how things are supposed to work. Increasingly, though, state and federal law enforcement officials are issuing what are called "administrative warrants (link is external)" -- no judge required. Not all judges are happy about that:
In March a federal judge enjoined the chief law enforcement official of Mississippi, Attorney General Jim Hood, for a more common form of lawless use of these warrants. Hood issued his own administrative subpoena to Google alleging that it published “obnoxious, tasteless and criminal content,” according to the injunction order.
