Supreme Court says search warrants needed when police use GPS devices to track suspects - The Washington Post
All nine justices agreed that the placement of the GPS on the Jeep violated the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable search and seizure.
Justice Samuel Alito also wrote a concurring opinion in which he said the court should have gone further and dealt with GPS tracking of wireless devices, like mobile phones. He was joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan.
Not sure what I can add, other than I thought the previous circumstance was a gross overstep of boundaries. Would like to see the latter addressed.

I was amused and horrified to watch the Obama administration argue for warrantless GPS tracking.

+1, although amused isn't what I had in mind!
Why is there always money for war, but none for education?
