Judge Says Warrantless Cell Phone Tracking Unconstitutional

Allowing law enforcement to track cell phone users' location without first needing a warrant is unconstitutional, ruled U.S. District Court Judge Lynn N. Hughes of the Southern District of Texas. "The records would show the date, time, called number, and location of the telephone when the call was made," wrote Judge Hughes. "These data are constitutionally protected from this intrusion." The current law lets law enforcement track cell phone records, GPS location, and other data without proving to a judge the need to gather such information. The law has come under fire in courts around the country, and Judge Hughes' ruling is only the latest against it. The federal government has appealed many of the rulings.

Every once in a while,a victory is scored against the seemingly relentless march of Fascism.
This one should fall into the no f-ing sh*t category. Unfortunately today it's a surprise ruling.
You should only know what real fascism is.
The fingers you use to type your statement would be non-existent.
