Cell phone tapped to me is a very complex thing. I believe that it should used to only to help solve a crime or protect us. The government might say well how can we prevent a crime or get information if we don't have taps on everyone all the time. Well thats a good point but we as citizens of the United States which runs on as a democracy should have a right to our privacy. Using cell phone records to track down criminal in an emergency situation is one thing. But allowing federal investigators to monitor a person through there cell phone without having to provide evidence of criminal activity is an outrage.
The government doesn't have the authority to track cellphone location without a warrant.
But most recently, on Dec. 20, a fourth judge, in New York, ruled in the government's favor, finding that the USA Patriot Act and federal wiretapping laws allow police to track cell phone signals without showing a cause. How will this affect us later down the road? I'm not sure but I don't like that fact that there is a possiblity that I am always goint to me watched. Phone tapped was one thing and now there may be cell phone tapped and I'm even hearing that we are being watch through camaras. But yet Ipeople still don't feel safe.
