A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

There’s a case that is making its way to the big show, the Supreme Court, that is one that privacy advocates and smartphone users everywhere are gonna want to pay attention too.

In Carpenter v. United States, the black robes will decide if law enforcement can request cell phone location data without a warrant. reports this doesn’t include texts or calls so all of your memes and flirtatious text to that girl guys that isn’t interested are safe from the eyes of the cops!

What got this started is a case where police used location data to track some armed robbers that police were trying to prosecute.

My how times have changed. In the old days, bad guys that got caught would say, “that’s not my weed, I’m just holding it for a friend” and now it’s “I wasn’t at the bank robbing it, I just let my friend borrow my iPhone that night.” I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
