well this is just dandy. the 9th circuit just ruled that you have no right to privacy in your driveway or on the road. so police can legally put a gps tracker on your car and track you w/o a warrant. this ruling affects anyone that lives in the western US. okay, not everyone. anyone who lives behind a gate, such as a celebrity has an expectation of privacy based on the fact that they live behind a gate. but driveways, they don’t count.
on principle, i think this ruling is abhorrent as i think ppl have a right not to have their property invaded and tracked however police want. but since it’s legal, i think the first thing ppl in the west need to do is to attach gps devices to all the cars of judges and their families on the 9th circuit, and then all the law enforcement and government official vehicles and have the info linked to some service like foursquare. let’s see how you like living life under a microscope motherfuckers.
