    American student finds GPS tracker stuck to car

    American student finds GPS tracker stuck to car, FBI shows up to reclaim its 'federal property'


    Click here to enlarge


    Mechanics spot strange things stuck under cars all the time, but when 20-year-old Yasir Afifi's ride was put up on lifts his shop found something that hadn't been kicked up from the road: a cylindrical tube connected to a device with an antenna. An extremely paranoid person would think they'd found a bomb, but the truth isn't much better. It was an FBI tracking device. Afifi posted pictures and his story on Reddit while a friend contemplated cunning things to do with it, sticking it to someone else's car or selling it on Craigslist. They didn't have long to ponder long before two "sneaky-looking" people were spotted outside his apartment. Afifi got in his car and drove off, only to be pulled over by FBI agents who demanded the device back, threatening "We're going to make this much more difficult for you if you don't cooperate."

    Now, we've already given our opinions on using GPS technology like this and, while it's unknown whether these agents had a warrant to place this device, the 9th US Court of Appeals recently made one unnecessary for this sort of thing. The ACLU is working with Afifi to fight that ruling, and for now we're hoping that he, who is an American with an Egyptian father, is currently able to hit the town without agents following his every move. However, at this point they may not need a tracker: one agent who retrieved the device took the time to list off his favorite restaurants and even congratulated him on his new job.

    "much more difficult if you don't cooperate." Well, glad to know they can just do whatever they want.

    The whole thing is just creepy.

    i recently made a presentation about GPS versus Privacy. this hits on a few numbers. they build profiles and everything, track patterns, track you by your cell-phone even, they can see which new "cell" you move to, and get direction. maybe Orwell and his book 1984 were on to something Click here to enlarge not to mention it's such a grey area that law enforcement sometimes doesn't need a warrant like you said. what happened to the 4th amendment! i guess by a utilitarian approach, the gov't sees it as more good than harm.

    The GPS device is manufactured by a Cogham plc, a British producer of military technologies. Over 60% of the company’s revenue comes from the U.S.

    And on top of all this they want to add a national ID system? Some going as far to ask for it to be something implanted? Holy $#@!, what have we become?

    even Demotards should respect the R

    he was the best president in MY lifetime.

    he gave the greatest speeches, he lead the military like a true soldier.



    1. President Reagan’s economic policies stimulated the economy, creating 17 million new jobs. One-fourth of the new jobs were created in 68 consecutive months. Black unemployment was cut in half.

    2. We were given incentives to save our money, to work, and to invest because of Reagan’s tax reforms.

    3. The inflation rate decreased to less than 4.4%. Family income rose 12%.

    4. We are now experiencing the longest and strongest peacetime prosperity in the history of the nation.

    5. We are experiencing the best peacetime relationship with the Soviet Union in our history. We have also seen the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan.

    6. We are now keeping the peace. We drew the line in Grenada, Libya, Afghanistan, and the Persian Gulf, and no countries have fallen to communism during the Reagan era.

    7. The U.S. military was refurbished and strengthened.

    8. There is now a call for prayer in schools. The Republican adminstration has been lobbying to give this deserved religious freedom.

    9. We have seen a return to traditional values. Under Reagan, we have seen a cut in federal funding of abortions; emphasis on a strong family unit; and the development of family-oriented public policy.

    10. Educational leaders are now working to sustain moral values and reestablish a clear understanding of right and wrong. The need for values in the curriculum has been trumpeted by the Reagan administration.

    11. People from other nations are flocking to America to follow our example. Our principles of civil and economic freedom are now being copied all over the world.

    America Just Prior to the Reagan Administration

    1. Seven million Americans were unemployed.

    2. We were told to live on less, to buckle our belts and to prepare for scarcity.

    3. Americans went through two of the worst years of inflation in 60 years. There was a 13% inflation rate. Family income dropped and we had the highest tax bill in our history.

    4. We were on the verge of a major recession.

    5. With our cold wars during the ’70s, we inspired our enemies not to be afraid of us. The Soviets refused to come to the bargaining table. Cultural exchanges between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. came to a halt.

    6. Disarmament was considered a noble goal. We did not know where to draw the line in our negotiations with the Soviets. Three countries fell to communism under the Carter administration: Benin (1977), Nicaragua (1979), and Zimbabwe (1980).

    7. Guns and tanks that did not even work were being sent to battle.

    8. Young Americans were not allowed to pray in school … even though Congress, every state house, and the Supreme Court begins business with prayer.

    9. Progressive values became fashionable. Social policies emulated the values of a small, vocal minority.

    10. Education did not sustain moral values. Educational curricula began to promote “alternative lifesyles,” such as homosexuality.

    11. America wore a “kick me” sign on its back. We lost our edge in technology and in global markets due to excessive government regulation, and high taxes which devoured capital.

    neg rep me all day if u want just have the Oballsma to back that up
