    Yea they are pretty cheap from what I remember.

    One of my family members has it on even while they are watching tv.
    It borders on moon bat crazy to me.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Wisconsin court upholds GPS tracking by police

    MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin police can attach GPS to cars to secretly track anybody's movements without obtaining search warrants, an appeals court ruled Thursday.

    However, the District 4 Court of Appeals said it was "more than a little troubled" by that conclusion and asked Wisconsin lawmakers to regulate GPS use to protect against abuse by police and private individuals.

    As the law currently stands, the court said police can mount GPS on cars to track people without violating their constitutional rights -- even if the drivers aren't suspects.

    Officers do not need to get warrants beforehand because GPS tracking does not involve a search or a seizure, Judge Paul Lundsten wrote for the unanimous three-judge panel based in Madison.
    Hell f'n no! No reason why the police should be able to track any of us without warrant. It is search, you are searching their patterns of behavior and destination to try to gather information. Some of that may be able to be done with good ol' fashioned stake out which maybe doesn't need warrant, but I say make them do a good ol' fashioned stake out then.

    No, we mean judges who choose to ignore an entire Amendment because it clashes with their BS social agenda. The Ninth Amendment is the most marginalized and misinterpreted Amendment EVER in the history of America. The Bill of Rights is not exhaustive, and unenumerated rights are EXPLICITLY affirmed in the Constitution. Privacy is not reserved to the government, hence it is an unenumerated right.

    Does this imply I somehow agree with Roe v Wade? Hell no. I'm pro-life now and forever, but I despise the judges and legal "experts" who have effectively rendered the Ninth Amendment impotent.

    The issue is really that they are attaching a device to your property. Where do the police think they get the right to add/modify your personal property at all?

    That is the real issue. They donít need a warrant to tail you around all day in public. They donít need a warrant to take photos of you out and about in public. But they should never have the authority to plant a bug/gps tracking product to my private property with or without a warrant.

    The strict constructionist stuff was a bunch of bull**** though. A constructionist realizes the constitution was pretty much universally meant as a limitation on the federal government, not on the states and this is why they donít pretend to find privacy rights in the text.

    yeah, I've never liked liberal activist fiction-writing judges either.

    Yeah, that was just a red herring SD planted because it's a bunch of liberals in Wisconsin doing this.

    What I want to see is a case where strict constructionist interpretation of the Constitution limited someone's rights or freedoms.

    No, women do not have the right to murder children, so no, strict interpretation that correctly defends the unborn is not such a situation.

    Divining rights from the Ninth Amendment and the penumbras of other Amendments is only incorrect when such a practice does not coincide with the letter of the law and the spirit of the Constitution. The idea that privacy is not a right is beyond ridiculous. The argument shouldn't be whether or not such a right exists - it does - the argument should be what said right encompasses. Does the right to privacy encompass abortion? I will state unequivocally that it does not, but I won't allow the misapplication of a right to threaten the right itself.

    If they don't need a warrant to stick a broomstick up your ass why would they need a warrant to stick a GPS on your vehicle?
