The SCOTUS originally ruled 2 years ago that it wasn't legal. Then yesterday, a federal judge ruled it's ok as far as she's concerned, as long as they're doing it to track you someplace they think you're going to show up anyway. How does that loophole sit with you?Answer Question

I would think it would require a court order. Kinda like the ankle bracelet they give to parolees.

No, they shouldn't. Only with a warrant. I'm not one bit surprised though. Eric Holder gave this administration permission to create and store dossiers on innocent Americans. I'm not quite sure why they would feel the need to do so. If they have cause, then I suppose I would feel much more comfortable with a judge having to give permission.
I asked a question about this the other day and only got 3 answers. I guess nobody cares if their government can spy on them without reason or cause. Very sad.

Here is the link for the article I referenced: http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2012/12/gov-dossiers-on-us-citizens/
In a secret government agreement granted without approval or debate from lawmakers, the U.S. attorney general recently gave the National Counterterrorism Center sweeping new powers to store dossiers on U.S. citizens, even if they are not suspected of a crime, according to a news report.
