Calif. federal appeals court allows police to secretly put GPS tracking devices on cars

The ruling means that authorities don't need a warrant to place such devices on cars in the nine western states the court covers.

Expect this to go to the U.S. Supreme Court because a federal appeals court in Washington D.C. arrived at a different conclusion.

What are your thoughts?
