Submission + - Two New Fed GPS Trackers Found on SUV ( 1

hessian writes: "As the Supreme Court gets ready to hear oral arguments in a case Tuesday that could determine if authorities can track U.S. citizens with GPS vehicle trackers without a warrant, a young man in California has come forward to Wired to reveal that he found not one but two different devices on his vehicle recently.

The 25-year-old resident of San Jose, California, says he found the first one about three weeks ago on his Volvo SUV while visiting his mother in Modesto, about 80 miles northeast of San Jose. After contacting Wired and allowing a photographer to snap pictures of the device, it was swapped out and replaced with a second tracking device. A witness also reported seeing a strange man looking beneath the vehicle of the young man’s girlfriend while her car was parked at work, suggesting that a tracking device may have been retrieved from her car."

  • Since the cops showed up and did that weird intimidation thing when the reporter came by to photograph the tracker it seems pretty obvious that they are also tapping the guy's phone. Otherwise how would they know when and where the reporter was going to meet the guy?

Diplomacy is the art of saying "nice doggy" until you can find a rock.
