Court OKs warrantless use of hidden surveillance cameras
In latest case to test how technological developments alter Americans' privacy, federal court sides with Justice Department on police use of concealed surveillance cameras on private property.
The article goes on a red herring wailing about how "new" tech is vs citizen rights. Sorry, surveillance cameras are ... cameras. Cameras are the cutting edge news of 1920, though it would be hard to hide a couple of the early ones.
What has happened is that someone Sent A Memo that says "look how much fun we can have now!" For you math types out there, here's my analogy:
Divide by zero.
Now STFU about this "illegal operation crap." I SAID, Divide by Zero NOW or you are a terrorist!
And remember all that cool Founding Fathers stuff about "inalienable rights"? Sorry, rights are very very alienable.
Extra Credit: The Supreme Court is looking at cases about sending sniff dogs onto your private property to look for evidence to nail you with too.
