ISP Tracking Device Raises Questions

The "Indianapolis "Star" has published the results of its investigation into police being able to track texts and phone calls to cell phones.  

The ISP reportedly purchased special equipment that allows police to track calls to specific cell phones and follow the movements of that phone.

It cost just under $400-thousand dollars.

But it isn‘t the money that may have some civil libertarians bothered: just as in the NSA example, it is the question of privacy.

Police say it‘s an important tool to fight crime and possibly prevent acts of terror.

An Indiana State Police spokesman was unable to comment on the story.
