Indian givers?: "FBI demand GPS bug back from tracked US student"

There have been past stories about whether the government can attach GPS devices to people's cars without a warrant. Now in this story the FBI wants one of their tracking devices back.

Afifi unsurprisingly gave them the tracker, though he believes they’d been following him for some time. One of the FBI agents apparently intimated they knew which restaurants he and his girlfriend had been frequenting, as well as complimenting him on his recent change in employment.

“We have all the information we needed,” were their parting words, “you don’t need to call your lawyer. Don’t worry, you’re boring.” However, the ACLU plan to use the case to challenge recent rulings that allow law enforcement to place tracking devices without requiring a warrant.

"...Don’t worry, you’re boring.”

Now, THAT may be the unkindest cut of all. :(
