Court allows agents to secretly put GPS trackers on cars

Court allows agents to secretly put GPS trackers on cars.

Law enforcement officers may secretly place a GPS device on a person's car without seeking a warrant from a judge, according to a recent federal appeals court ruling in California.

Drug Enforcement Administration agents in Oregon in 2007 surreptitiously attached a GPS to the silver Jeep owned by Juan Pineda-Moreno, whom they suspected of growing marijuana, according to court papers.

When Pineda-Moreno was arrested and charged, one piece of evidence was the GPS data, including the longitude and latitude of where the Jeep was driven, and how long it stayed. Prosecutors asserted the Jeep had been driven several times to remote rural locations where agents discovered marijuana being grown, court documents show.

Pineda-Moreno eventually pleaded guilty to conspiracy to grow marijuana, and is serving a 51-month sentence, according to
his lawyer.

But he appealed on the grounds that sneaking onto a person's driveway and secretly tracking their car violates a person's reasonable expectation of privacy.

"They went onto the property several times in the middle of the night without his knowledge and without his permission," said his lawyer, Harrison Latto.

The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the appeal twice -- in January of this year by a three-judge panel, and then again by the full court earlier this month. The judges who affirmed Pineda-Moreno's conviction did so without comment.
Latto says the Ninth Circuit decision means law enforcement can place trackers on cars, without seeking a court's permission, in the nine western states the California-based circuit covers.

The ruling likely won't be the end of the matter. A federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., arrived at a different conclusion in similar case, saying officers who attached a GPS to the car of a suspected drug dealer should have sought a warrant.
Experts say the issue could eventually reach the U.S. Supreme Court.

One of the dissenting judges in Pineda-Moreno's case, Chief Judge Alex Kozinski, said the defendant's driveway was private and that the decision would allow police to use tactics he called "creepy" and "underhanded."

"The vast majority of the 60 million people living in the Ninth Circuit will see their privacy materially diminished by the panel's ruling," Kozinksi wrote in his dissent.

"I think it is Orwellian," said Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, which advocates for privacy rights.

"If the courts allow the police to gather up this information without a warrant," he said, "the police could place a tracking device on any individual's car -- without having to ever justify the reason they did that."
But supporters of the decision see the GPS trackers as a law enforcement tool that is no more intrusive than other means of surveillance, such as visually following a person, that do not require a court's approval.

"You left place A, at this time, you went to place B, you took this street -- that information can be gleaned in a variety of ways," said David Rivkin, a former Justice Department attorney. "It can be old surveillance, by tailing you unbeknownst to you; it could be a GPS."

He says that a person cannot automatically expect privacy just because something is on private property.
"You have to take measures -- to build a fence, to put the car in the garage" or post a no-trespassing sign, he said. "If you don't do that, you're not going to get the privacy."

I really wouldn't worry about this unless you got a snitch working you, like this one.
After you read the web addresses below you will see that even when the DEA is guilty they go free. If their found guilty than people can sue the United States of America Department of Justice. A not guilty verdict only leave the victims with a civil suit. What are they going to do split his pension? You see, when someone in law enforcement like a drug task force agent or a DEA, FBI or CIA agent is found guilty it usually mean it's not the first time, which means the Government could face more law suites. So they bury it. But lives are altered sometime for life. If you think informants [snitches] are small time 🤬 heads, your wrong! Andrew Chambers made millions of dollars a year working as a DEA Informant.

Do you think ex-military narcotics officers, drug task force, DEA, FBI & CIA agents spend years studying in college to successfully finish all phases of the rigorous in-depth hiring process all so that a high school drop out, drug user, paid informant can make hundreds of thousands of dollars, in some cases even millions of dollars on the street without them getting their cut? Bull! The reason they never really get caught is because no ex-military, narcotics officers, drug task force, DEA, FBI & the CIAl agents ant interested in being no ghetto celebrity or a living legend on the street. Their currency is liquid, it's invested and washed very well.

Before you say, "what's wrong with snitching?"

Why college students?
Because college students love to explore and experiment with a number of extracurricular activities, parties and drugs. That's where PAID federal Informants have an open playing field selling Marijuana, Ecstasy, ["Addy"] Ritalin, Coke, Adderall, ["🤬 "] Methamphetamine, Amphetamines, aka uppers, LSD, 🤬 and Mushrooms Heroin. These are some of the colleges that were used & being used Ohio State University, Cleveland State University, Case Western Reserve University, Wilberforce University, Central State University, Kent State University. Hell, you may as list most colleges in Ohio. Also, UCLA & USC, The University of Pittsburgh, University of Texas. Penn State University, Florida State, Howard University, University of Penn, Harvard University, Temple University, LSU, University Tenn, UNC, University of Cincinnati, UCSB. There are simply to many colleges & Universities to name. Of course most high school & colleges have their own informants & it's were the FBI & other law enforcement do a lot of recruiting.

This PAID federal informant will travel from Cleveland, OH to Columbus, OH, Akron, OH, Kent, OH, Ravenna, OH, Mansfield, OH, Toledo, OH, Cincinnati, OH, Florida, Texas, New York, PA, Maryland, Myrtle Beach & to Cali in a heartbeat. The snitch got his family lying for him because they all living below middle class & some are ex-crackheads that got their life together. And the family they got that are paid are trying to save their 🤬 .

What name will he be using for this new semester? The class of 91'-93' at Shaw High school & Cleveland Heights High school may remember Shan & Keith.

Shanton Cassell aka "Shan" is working as a Federal Informant and could also be living off of disability faking a mental illness. Put this snitch in a whip [car] & he think he can out slick anybody. Shan is a black male age 37 or 38. Shan can go up in weight & come down in weight. Fat than medium. You want see him walking around because he stays mobil in a whip. Shan use to live in East Cleveland & Cleveland Hts. before he moved to Columbus, Ohio back in the 90's. Shan dropped out of Cleveland Heights High School in 1989. But of course to work as a government informant no experience or education is desired. Shan liked to smoke prems & wet & chain smoke blunts. He also can grow cheap weed. Shanton Cassell aka "Shan" could be using the last name Smith. Shan father name is Shanton "Toby" Smith. Shanton better known as "Shan" maybe a member of the Freemasons & Order of the Amaranth, Vice Lords, Folks, Gangsta Disciple. You name it his suburb 🤬 will act like he a member. What name will they be using?

Shan is a expert car thief & they can switch up cars. I don't know if some of the cars & bikes are seized property the government let them drive around in to show off but they can afford them as well as limos, chauffeured driven Lincoln Town cars.

Keith and Shan both moved to Columbus, Ohio back in the 90's.

Keith Bumber aka Chilly "B" is from Cleveland, Hts. a suburb in Cleveland, OH. Keith is a wannabe rapper, a high school drop out back in the 90's. Keith paid someone to take his GED. Keith like to hang in Texas.Keith will use the name Darail after moving to Columbus, Ohio in the 90's. Keith lived right around the corner from his high school on Kildare Rd. Keith hang with T-Ray, Ed, Cotrail, Cotrail, Cotrail, let me tell you about Cotrail, Cotrail use to get on his back & kick his arms & legs & scream " I'm a dying cockroac, no more raid," just to hang, "you can not deny this Cotrail, you use to do this in front of girls, it was like hazing, so nobody tripped, but if you are down with an informant trying to frame people, don't think we don't know about the gun charge you caught in the military. Mikey & Kipper the twin brothers. They had a grouo Kappa Phi Nasty that use to get beat-up by a group in that suburb called the Homeboys & the Brothers they also got beat-up by East Cleveland Shaw High school students.

    I agree 100% The government do a lot of 🤬 that's illegal in many ways but when they get caught that's when they inform us it's legal. I was shoot'en the 🤬 with this Asian student the other day & he raised the question to me about the FBI being on college campuses. I was like, "of course, you know the FBI recruit heavy the military & university & college campuses & a lot of them watch foreign students?" he was like, "yea, that's the rumor that's been going around for decades that the FBI try & monitor Asian & Arab computers & phone calls while kissing our ass so our race can when the college a Nobel Prize." "Why do you think Asians & Arabs or so humble & white friendly?" "We know who turf we are on, just trying to calm the watchers & fly under the radar."
