    Should the police be able to stick GPS on your vehicle without a warrant?

    A simple yes or no question.

    I say no, its not the government or police's damn business where you travel in the US. These judges should be removed.

    Wisconsin court upholds GPS tracking by police -- chicagotribune.com

    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.

    "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"

    This is the kind of garbage you get out of the courts when you nominate "strict constructionists" that don't believe you have a constitutional right to privacy.

    A real strict constructionist would understand the Ninth Amendment is not simply an ink-blot.

    Police need to be limited in all that they do. They are here to protect rights and people not to infringe on them.

    I don't know about that. A lot of them think that the only rights you have are those that are explicitly stated in the Bill of Rights.

    Just a thought, is it okay for private citizens to utilize police radio scanners like use to be sold at Radio Shack?

    In my mind after studying the Constitution a bit more in depth, the right to privacy is explicitly implied (If that makes sense).

    A strict constructionist should uphold individuals rights and protections before he/she would ever yield to the government.

    Yea you can buy police radio scanners.

    You will often find old people listening to them, why I have no clue.
    Its a requirement for some old people.

    Which means they are not strict constructionists.
