On the surface, I can easily see some aspects of why this would be a good thing for LEO's. On the other side of the coin though, I can also see where this could easily be abused.
Remember, any time a law is passed that grants the Security & Law Enforcement communities some new ability to go get the "Bad Guys", it's usually only a matter of time until a shift in the prevailing govmnt.'s way of thinking allows them to go after the people that the new official bosses deem to be a "problem".
Which could potentially be you, simply because the new guys in charge dislike you, just as much as you dislike them.
