If Bush had tried this…

The media would have had an absolute field day.

Never mind warrant-less wire tapping. What the Obama Administration is pushing for is knowing where you are via your cellphone 24/7

And they aren’t stopping there either!

The administration has also asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to reverse its August ruling requiring court warrants to affix GPS devices to vehicles to track their every move. The administration said Americans should expect no privacy “in the totality of his or her movements in public places.

Emphasis mine
A full PDF of the hearing can be found here and a recitation of the rebuttal found here

Folks it is time to step up and pay attention.

No matter who you voted for or what group your affiliated with, this is wrong, period.

  • Well I hope they have fun following me to the grocery store to buy diapers. Heres the thing, a few years ago, I may have been worried about this, however, since I have no wrong-doing to worry about anymore, and my bills are all paid up, let then follow me around in my daily tasks. :)

    That being said, I do agree that is is wrong and against all our civil rights, and it is a breach of privacy, but I can’t help but think….if it gets more criminals off the streets, would it be worth it?

  • Consider this. First it was warrantless wire taps on your home phone, done by the Bush administration. Then it became warrantless wiretaps on your cellphone, done by this administration. Now it’s tracking your every single move in your car and via your cellphone, without a warrant.

    The question is not regarding criminals, which arguably it may halt. But rather Where does it stop?

    And who defines the term criminal? Would say then that perhaps that Nathan Hale would be, by definition, a criminal?

    Are you also advocating the complete removal of the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution as well then?

  • “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. ”

    No, not removal of the fourth amendment, but I do see your point: “where does it stop”….

    I happen to be a slight fan of being able to track a person no matter where they are, and I cant help but think of my son…if he got lost, or kidnapped, would he have a tracking device on him/his car/or his cell phone, that would be all the more clues as to where he might be. Think of all the kidnappings that have no clues at all. That being said, what about all the cars that are stolen…

    I will say this, though…”reasonable doubt” that’s a scary phrase to me, what if your grandma just happens to live in a “drug neighborhood”, if you go visit her, and are being tracked, is that enough to serve a search warrant? if so…then my attitude towards this changes entirely.

  • Here’s a consideration. If you track your son while he is under the age of 18, that’s a choice you can make. Many cellphone companies offer just that ability for kids on a family plan bill.

    However your not being given a choice here. It is neither consensual, nor anything you can use, only the government authorized agencies will be able to use it. Care to try to guess if your local LEO’s will have access to it versus Federal level?

    Also both plans have a failing point, all someone has to do is chuck the cellphone out the window and set out on foot.

    This is not a guarantee that it will be used for the purposes you just mentioned, this is being used only for the advocation of government investigations as they see fit.

    Not as we see fit.
