GOOD!

This is VERY good news.

The Supreme Court says police must get a search warrant before using GPS technology to track criminal suspects.

The court ruled in the case of Washington, D.C., nightclub owner Antoine Jones. A federal appeals court in Washington overturned his drug conspiracy conviction because police did not have a warrant when they installed a GPS device on his vehicle and then tracked his movements for a month.

With the amount of crap cops have gotten away with without warrants this is a welcome change. If only we could do something about those shitty no-knock warrants.

    Today, there are probably hundreds of LEO’s heading out to vehicles scattered around the Nation, having to crawl under Cars and Trucks in the Snow and Mud, hoping they don’t get caught and sued by the vehicles owners. And I’m sure there’s some Lawyers heading to Court, demanding a New Trial for their clients. I just hope that someone sues the TSA for Violating their Rights by demanding a Search of their Persons and Property w/o a Warrant.

      God I hope so. Would serve them right!

      Tho likely they’re just shutting down the monitoring software and making note that if they DO get a warrant they can light the units back up.

    Looks like it might end up being Sen. Rand Paul.

    The TSA version of events is that Paul triggered an alarm during routine airport screening and refused to complete the screening process (pat-down) in order to resolve the issue. Paul was escorted out of the screening area by local law enforcement.

    […]

    Paul’s office confirmed he set off an airport security full-body scanner “on a glitch,” according to a spokesman.

    The Paul staffer said TSA agents would not let Paul walk back through the body scanner and were demanding a full body pat-down.

    I think (and hope) they picked the wrong guy to screw around with on this issue.
