Is GPS Tracking Technology An Invasion Of Privacy?

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- The Supreme Court deliberated Tuesday if police use of GPS tracking devices could be considered unconstitutional.

It was GPS technology police used to catch Jason Burdick, known as the Wooded Rapist. Burdick was accused of raping at least 13 women and has been tried and found guilty in some of those cases.

But the question is now: did law enforcement violate his privacy?

“That sounds like Nazi Germany, where they are attaching things to people, and show me your papers, and show me your cards,” said attorney David Raybin.

“When you open the door to that kind of intrusion of attaching things to peoples cars, and to people themselves, there is no limit to how far that can go,” said Raybin

The Supreme Court will eventually decide if using tracking devices, needs the advance approval of a Judge.

As for Supreme Court, no final decision was made, that won’t happen until next spring. A number of the justices had strong opinions.

Stephen Breyer told the government attorney if he wins this case, there is nothing to prevent the police or government from monitoring the public’s movement 24 hours a day, and an “ultra-control” society is created, and run by Big Brother.
