Boys swimming jammers - Ninth Court allowed police to track people without warrants?
Yes, the Ninth Circuit Appeals Court, located in Portland, Oregon had a Juan Pineda-Moreno case related to the marijuana growing. According to the judiciary, police installed GPS tracking device on the Jeep of Juan Pineda-Moreno and tracked his movements. Those data allowed law enforcements to open the case against him with the marijuana growing charge.
The usage of GPS tracking device by police was admitted as legal because it was used in 2007 when the Ninth Court ruling of 1999 was the law in force. According to that ruling, the usage of GPS trackers was neither unreasonable search nor illegal seizure thus it was not violating any Fourth Amendment points. Even after the famous Jones case and Supreme Court ruling to change the approach of the judiciary to similar cases the Ninth Court said that they will use the Supreme Court recommendations yet not this time but in future cases.
From one point of view I can understand them because any kind of drug dealers should be captured and judged without any remorse. But from the other point of view such selective approach can hurt the privacy of many innocent people. So if you want to make sure you are not tracked by law enforcements’ GPS tracking devices then you need to use police GPS tracker jammer that will protect you against satellite tracking which might be hidden in your vehicle.
