For starters, the GPS cannot tell the difference between Private roads and public roads, private or public property.
By they way I drive a Ford, I will not tell what kind.

Get used to it. In the very near future, virtually every car made will have one. Don't like it? Buy a bike. Walk. Get a bus. But be assured, its not "unconstitutional," in any way, shape, or form. If it was, it would not be getting installed on factory cars, etc. Airplanes are going to this, also. Got a problem with that? Swim. Go by boat. Ride a bike. Take a bus.

This is very unconstitutional. And, if my car has one, someday, I'll still be entitled to remove the device, if it's my car. Won't that be a kick in the ass if they start telling us it's illegal to remove the GPS device?

U.S. District Judge David N. Hurd is from New York.....New York is a blue state, and this judge was choosen by the dominant democrats and liberals in New York.
So, if you want to blame anyone blame all the liberals and democrats that seemed to have voted for this judge. I do not see this having anything to do with the current administration.

This is nothing new; this has always been the case. You have no basis to assume that your public travels are, or should be, a private matter.

As has become the usual course of events, private citizens will have to protect their rights themselves. Time to do a little research into gps blockers.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Well let me add my two cents on this issue.... My dad is a lawyer, and I often discuss legal issues such as this with him. I would tend to interpret this matter in a very anal retentive way, tending to favor personal rights to privacy. My legal argument against this would basically break down into this:
The more weight you drive around with in/on your car = more gas your car consumes per mile = more money out of your pocket
So if the police are attaching this device to your car without your knowledge/concent or a warrant, then they are placing an undue monetary burden on you (no matter how infitessimal, IT IS costing you money). Therefore they need to F**k off and get a warrant goshderned no good lousy control freak pigs!
