There must be a limit as to how far the "law" can go to enforce the law.
Checking your ticket on a train is one thing. Checking the content of your personal device or luggage while in the public would be another.
Unless they have specific reason to suspect there is something illegal on or in it, my personal belongings have to be of no interest to anyone except myself.
(Obviously, being on the tram is reason enough to ask for your ticket. Possessing an eReader, though must not be reason enough to check it.)
