    Because the idea that we are self-governed is an illusion and most of the citizens of America are clueless or could not care less. It saddens me when everyone still sings "in the land of the free", no we aren't. The idea is of course that if we repeat that mantra enough we will believe it and sadly many Americans still do.

    Perhaps, Risky Thicket, but we can still take some solace in the fact that it is not yet as bad as the UK. They may still have time to turn it around.

    I watched video of young kids robbing an old woman at train stop, then beating and choking her, finally throwing her onto the train tracks. I'm sorry, but I cannot accept that behavior as "fine."
    No, need to be sorry at all.

    Who took the video you were watching?

    Agreed, that was an important part of the case, but the ruling came down on the 4th amendment vs advanced surveillance equipment.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Okay, but if you read under the section labaled, "Advancing technology and the Fourth Amendment," you'll find this (my bold):

    Thus, in cases where police have not used a “physical intrusion” to install a GPS device, one’s “reasonable expectation of privacy” may depend on the length of surveillance. And it may depend on the wealth of data that police can acquire through GPS monitoring.

    [...]

    Four justices agreed that police violated Jones’s Fourth Amendment rights, not because of a physical intrusion, but because the monitoring went on too long.
    So justices are finding a 4th amendment violation because of the duration, not the means. Lastly, we find this (my bold):

    Alito’s concurrence noted that the line was surely crossed before the four-week mark, but other cases may be different. “[S]hort term monitoring of a person’s movements on public streets accords with expectations of privacy that our society has recognized as reasonable,” Alito wrote, suggesting that warrantless GPS monitoring may be reasonable in certain cases.

    I believe it was captured by the platform surveillance cameras. Unfortunately, the camera feed wasn't being monitored.
