Many conspiracy theorists believe the a secret shadow government is plotting to forcefully insert tracking devices into every person on Earth. This theory is absurd because so many people already carry around a personal tracking device voluntarily, it’s called a cell phone. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has put together a rather useful map that you can use to see how police in your state are using cell phones to track individuals:
In a massive coordinated information-seeking campaign, 35 ACLU affiliates filed over 380 requests in 31 states and Washington, D.C. with local law enforcement agencies large and small to uncover when, why and how they are using cell phone location data to track Americans.
Sadly no data for Minnesota currently exists but there is data on many other states.
