Small Victory in Name of Liberty - Supreme Court: GPS Tracking Is Illegal Without Warrant

I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Mashable, and they posted an interesting article today that I thought my fellow liberty lovers here at DailyPaul would enjoy.

The gist of the article is basically that law enforcement attempted to track an individual via GPS for drug related charges. The GPS data was used against this individual in court, yet after a series of appeals, the Supreme Court deemed the data was collected illegally because the individual's privacy was protected under the 4th amendment without a search warrant.

Mind you, the individual was probably guilty of drug trafficking. However the fact of the matter is that this story does raise hope in our judicial system and illustrates that at least some people in that system are aware of our rights under the constitution.

Here is a link to the article:
