lack of warmth: A question: Why does the tracking device has to have a blinking light? Why not make the thing looks like it belongs there, instead of a corny movie prop?


It is a battery light.  The person who planted it can see if it needs to be recharged/removed.  Also, you can tell if it fell off.

RodneyToady: Police obtained a warrant from a Walworth County Circuit Court judge to "place an electronic tracking device" on the Pontiac, but the warrant did not specify the device's features in detail.

The cops had a warrant.  In my not-a-lawyer mind, that's sufficient.


But of course the article doesn't specify the probable cause for obtaining/signing the warrant to install the GPS device.  Just that the car had been impounded.  Could use a little more information than was given.
