By Chris Trunde Most of us know to turn our tracking to E911 only, meaning location is not supposed to be tracked or available, except to EMERGENCIY agencies, NOT Governmental Authorities. A very big and clear differerence. I'm fact, phone carriers should not be tracking anyone with E911 set. Therefore, any agency that wants to view cellphone location data, needs to have a warrant.

Obviously, the courts are upside down on this principle, so no, they are not trustworthy to protect our privacy.
