    Butte County, CA has these things called electronic warrants. Instead of taking a warrant affidavit to a judge, the police can simply send a digital affidavit to a judge to be signed electronically.

    As long as a judge sees it, finds it justifiable, and signs off on it, then I see no problem with this. It's merely using modern technology to streamline a once tedious process.

    ***MAJOR Breaking Bad Spoiler Alert***

    Just think if Albuquerque had this years ago, Walt might not have got away from Hank that first time, waiting for a warrant while he had him cornered in that rolling meth lab!

    Hank would still be alive...and Gomie would still be alive...:(

    This sounds like a Breaking Bad reference. Or in my case, a spoiler that I wish I didn't read!

    You're lucky I'm not a Butte County judge because I would've signed off on your arrest warrant by now from the comfort of my armchair.

    We've reached the Spoiler Statute of Limitations. Time for a Netflix binge, methinks.

    My sincerest apologies. I've since edited my post. I guess I take for granted that everyone has by now watched this most amazing show. :eek::eek::eek:

    In this day and age of Netflix and streaming content, there is little excuse. Although I'm not yet up-to-date on my Game of Thrones or House of Cards. No spoilers please!!!

    Oh so rubber stamping is going to become more common...Great.

    ----------

    I am sure many warrants don't get read now. Make it even easier to not read them
