Well, not for "weeks or months" anyway:

The Supreme Court ruled Friday that law enforcement cannot track people's movements for periods of weeks or months without a warrant.

In a 5-4 ruling, the court held that the acquisition of cell-site records by government officials is covered under the Fourth Amendment.

Chief Justice John Roberts who wrote the opinion sided with the court's four liberal judges; Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer - while Justice Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch dissented.

While stressing that their decision doesn't question longstanding surveillance techniques and tools such as security cameras, Roberts said that historical cell-site records present even greater privacy concerns than monitoring via GPS.

Why track when you can assign a drone to stalk and fire an air to ground missile at the terrorist?

Agreed. If they would apply the same freedom and civil liberties to free speech of non-leftoids and would stop harassing people that don't pander to the lgbtqawesomo++--xyz247genders and immigrant communities they'd be dandy.

Believe it or not, I used to be a democrat. back when they stood for the little man, against criminal injustice, mass incarceration, anti free trade and globalism.

Now Trump embodies all those and now that he is a victim of criminal injustice and deep state-he can reform because ehe now understands. He is also open to pot delaing at the state level. Of course the suual stupid suspects will come on and mumble something-today;s liberlas are about what is cool or should I say what is batshit crazy, not about positions.

Trumps guy Gorsuck was against this. But liberals totally ruined everything so vote Republican 24/

As usual liberlas don't understand anything and clearly demonstrate why no sane person wants to be a liberal.

They can't track me for weeks or months without a warrant ?

Wow. That seems like quite the breakthrough on my privacy.

there is no labor party in this country. You have to pick from the less worst of the 2 corporatist parties. The democrats offer a little more resistance but they betray the trust of the rank and file. All other partieds are locked out unless you are Ross Perot and got a few hundred millions to throw at it from your oil fortune just to lose.

The Republicans sell you on that betrayal as your one true salvation. When you get Republicans, the oligarchs know they got a major green light like now. They got that tax windfall, they are going for social security, medicare, medicaid, EPA, DOE, just everything. They have never seen such a heyday as they have with wild ass Trump.

The name of the game is to keep stalling the 25th ammendment or the impeachment for as long as possible until they can strap down the working man as hard as imaginable.

Bunch of sick-assed neocons will never ever be satisfied because they are all filthy sick with murderous greed.
