If not you might want to look into one.
According to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, police officers can place a GPS device on a car parked in a driveway on private property, without a warrant .
“[Juan] Pineda-Moreno cannot show that the [DEA] agents invaded an area in which he possessed a reasonable expectation of privacy when they walked up his driveway Because the agents did not and attached the tracking device to his vehicle. invade such an area, they conducted no search, and Pineda-Moreno can assert no Fourth Amendment violation.”
Crissy, your link is a different one than the article the other day. I think the particular subject they were tailing was only suspected of growing weed, there was no warrant. There are a lot of reasons this is wrong. The first of which is that they don't necessarily need to have probable cause. We have laws for a reason. Not to even mention the waste this can create when there isn't enough evidence to get a warrant, there are plenty of other cases that do. Why not focus on the ones that you have any chance in hell in actually solving rather than a wild goose chase? Sure, the person being watched 'might' do something worth arrest, but it is also just as likely that they won't. Waste of money, time and resources.
Oh, and lets not even start on other methods of law enforcement being able to track you. I guess those would require warrants though.

This was posted the other day and as I recall, the article I read (I think originally posted by sweet-a-kins) even stated that this does not effect those that are wealthy enough to have a gate on their driveway.
A warrant should be required for something like this. If it's perfectly legal, what's to stop criminals from turning the tables and being able to hunt down agents the same way?

We discussed this at length the other day. I pointed out that if that is their attitude then they should have no expectation that I would not shoot them for trespassing on my personal property and touching my personal property.

Next question overall
Do you play "matchmaker" with your sibs or just leave them alone?
