Police tracking cell phones w/o warrants

The ACLU is claiming that AT&T, Bell South, Sprint, and other wireless carriers are not only handing over your cell phone information to law enforcement agencies without warrants, but are profiting from it.

Yup, they charge law enforcement agencies for things like “retention information,” and “subpoena compliance” even as they fork over the information without proper legal requests.

Isolated incidents? The ACLU requested information from 383 law enforcement agencies, only 10 reported that they don’t track cell phones.

Moreover, Google and Apple are helping police bypass iPhone and Android lock screens, also without warrants.
