    SCOTUS rules that GPS tracking can break 4th amendment

    Supreme Court Rules Government GPS Trackers Can Break Fourth Amendment

    this is huge and it was an unanimous vote on it as well.
    that gps tracking is considered a search, and that a warrant has to be obtained.

    this could have implications as well for phone gps tracking that law enforcement will need a warrant for that as well.
    since they have ruled before that you have a right to privacy for your location.

    finally a win for the constitution.

    2 hours and no addition to this thread. Must be because it has nothing to do with Obama, gays, religion or guns.

    I'm inclined to agree that it is big. It was the electronic equivalent of "your papers please" without the question and without the please.

    Definitely a good decision. maybe the justices are paying attention after all to police overreach with technology.

    SCOTUS needs to be doing more.

    I'm willing to bet that the NSA has broken the 4A 500,000,000,000^1000 times.

    That being said, I love it, this is definitely a step in the right direction.

    I agree however I think the NSA has been put under wraps for the time being.
    the problem is the FISERV court that is used.

    no public document no nothing it is a secret court that these people appeal to in order to do what they do.
    the problem is without knowing what goes on there can be no oversite.

    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    guess if it's something we all agree on, it's a non-story
