    When you break a major law, you give up your rights.
    Simple as that.

    I agree here. Though in my opinion this should be legal for future situations, the man clearly had his rights violated before.

    That's not how it works... and you should be thankful it's not.

    If they legalize it though, which I can understand why they would, they should be required to get a warrant to do it, the same way any other search or what not would.

    I wonder if using a jammer only to block this would be illegal.

    hope you guys realise its impossible to leave your house and go anywhere without being caught on camera one way or another. installation of a gps just makes the job easier.

    Why don't they just stick a computer chip in our brains then, and prevent us from even thinking about doing something illegal? Oh...and the politicians are except from that as they currently are most of the time anyways.

    Ever heard the phrase: "Innocent until proven guilty"? Didn't think so.

    this could be compared to them following him in a helicopter.

    this is legal, it sucks but its true.

    on the ugly side, the corruption of the police is what scares me the most. you can literally be arrested for nothing and put in jail for years because of the word of a cop. if it turns out they don't like you, they can make something up and if it seems valid, bam youre arrested.

    that sounds very unlikely, do you have any excerpts from legal documents that back up what you are saying?
