    Very strange call from the 9th circuit. Should be interesting to see who agrees with them and who doesn't.

    What a terrible ruling.

    I'll wager it eventually gets reversed higher up the judicial ladder.

    We can't expect privacy just because something is on private property? That has got to be one of the most ridiculous statements I have ever heard, if not *the* most ridiculous! I fully expect that if my vehicle is parked on my private property that I rent or own, that my privacy will be respected. Frankly, if I'm parked on a public street, I still expect privacy.

    We are rapidly losing rights, and it's getting quite scary. I find it very frightening that not only can they do this, but that they've apparently decided we no longer have privacy on our own property. What's next? A cop supervising our showers? Someone training a video camera on us as we sleep, with a contraption that can see our dreams so we can be charged with any crimes we commit in said dreams? I wouldn't put it past them to be trying to come up with such a thing.

    Sad. Scary. Ridiculous.
