Ruling Supreme

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the people, protecting the 4th Amendment. The decision was unanimous requiring law enforcement to demonstrate probable cause and obtain a search warrant prior to long term electronic surveillance via GPS.

Last year the court favored warrantless searches of homes provided there was suspicion of evidence being destroyed.  Even though nothing will return the complete privacy I used to take for granted at home, I am relieved at this decision. I have nothing to hide but I like knowing that should I drive to a secret hideout, the route will be safe from warrantless GPS tracking.
