Thread: No Privacy in Public?

No Privacy in Public?The Justice Department is demanding a federal appeals court rehear a case in which it reversed the conviction and life sentence of a cocaine dealer whose vehicle was tracked via GPS for a month, without a court warrant. The authorities then obtained warrants to search and find drugs in the locations where defendant Antoine Jones had travelled.
The administration, in urging the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to reverse a three-judge panel’s August ruling from the same court, said Monday that Americans should expect no privacy while in public.

The feds don't think privacy exists anywhere. Even in a room with foot thick lead walls, no windows, and which you've had someone weld you inside of...
That said -- I do think that they should fight this ruling. There's a lot of room for abuse, but requiring warrants is overkill for GPS bird dogs.Voting against incumbents until we get a Congress that does its job.

I think there was another thread about warrantless GPS tracking of vehicles. I think it's a scary precedent.
