    Big Win for the 4th Amendment

    WASHINGTON – In a major decision on privacy in the digital age, the Supreme Court ruled Monday that police need a warrant before attaching a GPS device to a person's car.

    Obviously I believe it's a very good ruling.

    Supreme Court rules warrant needed for GPS tracking

    I saw something about this. It's nice to see SCOTUS getting something so clearly right. It is, however, kind of scary that this case made it to SCOTUS.

    It's new ground. I suppose it's inevitable.

    Nice to see the SC actually uphold the constitution.Amazing how many people think the 4th only applies only on the inside of your home.The 4th amendment clearly states effects as one of those things protected against unreasonable search and seizure. Effects are property.


    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Good now rule the Patriot Act unconstitutional and I'll actually think the Judicial side of government is making some progress.

    Agree...

    One less infringement by government...and about an untold number to go. But, one infringement at a time, I guess. Better than going the other way, which it seemed to be moving.

    What police dept was unclear on this? Like, who thought that putting a GPS on someone's car without a warrant or permission WASN'T a violation of the 4th?

    You would be surprised how many people think that there is a fine print in the 4th amendment that says"only applies on the inside of your home with the curtains closed" .
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

    Now if they could kindly rule in favor of the 4th per TSA screenings.
