Except for the fact that those companies are fairly heavily regulated.


Come Bloody Angel

Break off your chains

And look what I've found in the dirt.

 

Pale battered body

Seems she was struggling

Something is wrong with this world.

 

Fierce Bloody Angel

The blood is on your hands

Why did you come to this world?

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

The blood is on your hands.

 

The blood is on your hands!

 

Pyo.

Did the person know that they planted a gps tracker on his car? Did they tell him?

In light of @mr moose’s video I’m not sure that’s what this is even about.  It’s about them getting a warrant based on them not finding the tracker  on his car.

My biggest issue with this is that they got a search warrant for "theft of a tracking device" that wouldn't have been stolen if the opportunity for a black, unmarked box being placed on the charged's car had never been placed. This reeks of entrapment.

In which case it would have been damaging police property instead of theft.  6 of one half a dozen of the other.

 

police powers have been narrowing lately.  I wonder if the guy had an Alexa in his house or used an android phone?  Google has much greater potential powers of survelience than police do.

If you crush it with a hammer and throw it away they couldnt prove anything though. Even if they found it they couldnt prove who broke it.

So they put something there that could be dealt with badly, and the dude dealt with it badly.  Not entrapment by itself.  There could be an argument that there was no way to deal with it that wasn’t bad though.  Then it WOULD be entrapment.  While you may have a point, the problem before the court as far as I can tell is more basic than that.

 

 They got a warrant for something they had no way of knowing if the guy even did.  


The second warrant was based on them NOT finding the tracker, and not knowing where it was.  IF the last ping on the tracker was in the barn, then they could look for their device, but the allegation of theft is garbage because they don’t know if he even found it.  Maybe it just fell off.  Searching the barn might even be considered reasonable under recovery of police property, but not theft.

 

At this point the exact wording of the second warrant becomes important.  WAS it worded as theft? Or was it worded in a manner that could include theft but also include a reasonably lost item?  If it was, IS a reasonably lost item grounds for a warrant?  If so under what circumstances?  We’re those circumstances met?  Part of the thing I see here is that the grounds for a third warrant, a single piece of paraphanalia, wouldn’t in a lot of places be grounds for a warrant UNLESS the guy was on probation.  IF he was on probation a lot of this violation of rights stuff may or may not go up in smoke, because the terms of a probation can waive any number of rights.  They are specific to probation terms though.

 

So IF the second warrant was legit, and there are various reasons it would or wouldn’t be, THEN we worry if there was a reasonable way for him to deal with the tracker even if it wasn’t the one he chose.  If there wasn’t THEN entrapment would be looked at.

 

So its a big mess.

Perhaps.  Unless they could.  It’s a point though.  It would also be illegal so it still goes to the entrapment issue which might only come up if the first problem of the second warrant passes muster.

So what if he had gone to an automotive shop/dealer service center and asked them what it was or asked them to remove it? Would the shop/technician be in trouble for removing it/keeping it? Would they have been charged with theft or removal of police property? I see GPS tracking devices on cars all the time placed there by finance companies. Sometimes they're still on vehicles after they've been paid off long ago, sometimes there's 2 or 3 of them under the dash still installed.

 

If I found something on my vehicle that I knew I didn't install I would surely remove it, open it to inspect it, google the FCC ID number or IMEI on it to find out what it is/who made it/who owns it and investigate how it was placed there. I assume this was a stand alone device not wired into the vehicle power likely stuck on with magnets?

Doesn’t matter.  It’s not the actual problem I think.  IF the original problem isn’t killed on its own merits THEN this one might need to be dealt with.

I would swap cars with someone or insure the car and set it on fire. lol make it look like the GPS unit started the fire!

the easiest thing to do is drive around until you are 110% sure no one is following you.

then rip the gps tracker off, and put it on a different car, but rip it off while you are 4 stories down in a parkade

I’m still liking the “rent the thing to Uber and make the cops chase it” idea just for the grin factor, but yours is more rational.

That would be letting them know you know though.  With the Uber thing you can run them ragged for a week and when they show up you can just say “huh?”

That’s good.  And it doesn’t have the severe logistics problem of tying it to a dangerous wild animal.  Those I couldn’t work out.

I mean if you're going to stick it on anything, stick it on a long haul truck, a train, or a city bus. Train would be pretty amusing and confusing however I'm sure they have actual visual surveillance on the vehicle from time to time and would notice fairly quick that the indicated position and GPS position do not match.

Especially if the that dealer was the “confidential informant”. Too much to hope for though.
