It's okay for cops to track suspects via GPS without a warrant, VA appeals court rules

The Virginia Court of Appeals ruled today that law enforcement should have the right to track criminal suspects with GPS, even without a warrant: "In a case that prompted warnings of Orwellian snooping by the government, the court unanimously ruled that Fairfax County Police did nothing wrong when they planted a GPS device on the bumper of a registered sex offender's work van without obtaining a warrant."
