GPS Tracker Violating Privacy Rights

| No Comments

The article was about the Supreme Court ruling that the cops violated a suspect's rights by placing a Global Positioning System tracker on the car of the suspect without him knowing. They violated his right and entered private property to place the tracker on the suspects car for 28 days. Antoine Jones argued that the cops violated his fourth amendment rights by trespassing on private property and placing a tracker on his car without his knowledge. The cops argued that they did it because they suspected Jones of being connected with selling cocaine and the GPS tracker helped to convict Jones of being associated with selling cocaine. They argued that if placing a GPS is violating the rights of citizens, what about On Star or the phone numbers people call and text that are on a cell phone bill, is that violating a person's rights too?
