High-profile spotlight: U.S. Supreme Court to look at phone tracking

Allegedly, an individual targeted by police participated with a group in a string of robberies in multiple locales.

Probable strategies to combat probable cause tactics

Is it legal for a police officer to pull you over in traffic, tell you to get out of your car, and then start rummaging through your seats and removing objects from inside your vehicle?
