Are you aware of geofence warrants? If not, I’ve got a podcast episode for you.
Today, I want to talk about going to jail for crimes you didn’t commit.
In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them …maybe you can hire The A-Team.
No, not in a cool way like that. I’m talking about geofence warrants. If you have no idea what that is, don’t worry. I hadn’t either until about two weeks ago when I researched them for a podcast episode:
It’s worth listening to. I’m covering the story of a guy who was about to go to jail for a robbery he didn’t commit, just because he used a cycling app and Google gave his data to the police. Who misinterpreted it.
By the way, The Private Citizen is now also available on Spotify, just in case that this is more convenient for you. There’s always the direct RSS feed too, of course. If you enjoy the show and if you think you derive some value from it, please consider supporting it. Otherwise, simply enjoy it. And of course, consider giving me feedback on the episode. I appreciate all of this very much.
