The Government Can Use GPS to Track Your Moves
Government agents can sneak onto your property in the middle of the night, put a GPS device on the bottom of your car and keep track of everywhere you go. This doesn't violate your Fourth Amendment rights, because you do not have any reasonable expectation of privacy in your own driveway — and no reasonable expectation that the government isn't tracking your movements.
That is the bizarre — and scary — rule that now applies in California and eight other Western states. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which covers this vast jurisdiction, recently decided the government can monitor you in this way virtually anytime it wants — with no need for a search warrant.
Go read the whole thing.
The government does not have the freedom to come onto my property without my consent. Yes, actually, we can expect a certain amount of privacy in our own driveways.
Highlighting a Time Magazine article about the 9th Circuit? What happened to "FUCK TIME MAGAZINE"????
Hope you're right.
