Court allows warrantless cell location tracking

The Obama administration had argued that warrantless tracking is permissible because Americans enjoy no “reasonable expectation of privacy” in their–or at least their cell phones’–whereabouts. U.S. Department of Justice lawyers said “a customer’s Fourth Amendment rights are not violated when the phone company reveals to the government its own records” that show where a mobile device placed and received calls.

Hey, how is that Hope and Change working out for you? Sure glad Obama was elected so the government wouldn’t do any more warrentless wiretaps. Or as the above article illustrates, track your ever freakin’ movement because they think it might help a case. Funny how Row v. Wade discovered a right to privacy in the Constitution that seemingly only applies to wombs. In everything, but your personal womb, you have no expectation of privacy.

As Joe relates a quote from a friend of his, “I don’t know exactly what’s in the phone software. But I do know the phone only has one battery.”
