  3. KING G on October 9, 2019 at 3:30 pm

    Wrap your cell phone with aluminum foil, then try calling it. Not sharing these information, for the intend of criminal activity.

  4. Georgina Gunningham on October 9, 2019 at 3:32 pm

    Take your SIM cards out and they have nothing to track … just don’t call on telephones… they’re connected

    we are buying a product, cell phone not knowing or willfully agreeing to these terms and yet it’s legal for phone makers not to disclose this. our batteries with the paper cover is a tracker and the plastic inside phone covers has the ability to monitor all activities we do, WTF!

  10. Ronny Ribs on October 9, 2019 at 3:45 pm

    Don`t waste your time and efforts trying to find another reverse phone in the search engines. utilize ~Detectivephone. ORG- and you will probably amazed.

  11. Honey Mohamed on October 9, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    So don’t take your mobile with you… Very dangerous this kind of tracking because there are many psychos in rhis world, and we have many in Egypt…

  12. Mamahnita Combs on October 9, 2019 at 3:47 pm

    This should only be accepted when there is a kidnapping, runaway teen, missing person or terrorist threat, massive drug dealer going down.

  13. Rough And Wretched R.A.W. on October 9, 2019 at 3:52 pm

    Wish I was a programmer. I’d build the worst possible virus triggered by unauthorized device tapping and remote access. that would turn their systems into boat anchors. Wanna snoop? Merry Christmas!

  14. Micheal Brook on October 9, 2019 at 3:52 pm

    Here in fairfax Springfield va …they not only track … they turn your phone off an d keep your phone on or off when they want …

  15. Dean Nunyabis on October 9, 2019 at 3:52 pm

    "there’s nothing more clear than the constitution except now apparently our constitution no longer applies"

    too bad this dickmilk doesn’t have that same attitude when it comes to the 2nd amendment.

  16. Charlie Brown on October 9, 2019 at 3:53 pm

    For 10 months I heard my neighbors making comments with their 2 very young boys about sites I was on. Just to prove to myself they were actually on a similar site or the site I was on I would suddenly turn on porn. Suddenly the young boys said " Daddy daddy daddy that guy turned on porn daddy. There are hacking devices. Police say they never heard of cell phones being hacked. Even the FBI said the same thing. They told me to smoke pot. They also told me to get a new phone and it will all be over.
    Now the local Coast Guard says, there is a device that hacks cell phones but this device that police use is as big as a trunk of a car. I cant believe this is going on. I believe police are getting really bored with their job and takes advantage of these devices. When I hear the daddy ask his boy to get the zapper to zap my phone and other neighbors phones .it can’t be as big as a trunk of a vehicle. It’s real. Its nasty..

    There are many components to cell phone spy software. One plan I discovered that succeeds in merging these is the Freds Fail Safe (check it out on google) without a doubt the most incredible resource that I’ve heard of.look at the interesting information .

  18. Manuel Montiel on October 9, 2019 at 3:54 pm

    Warrant is important because the cops becomes liable for the damages.

  19. Berthold Sebastian Welker on October 9, 2019 at 3:55 pm

    Fuck the media

  22. Whiskey Leaks on October 9, 2019 at 4:01 pm

    only time I’ve ever agreed with young turks

  23. eggmanfryer on October 9, 2019 at 4:02 pm

    Gun rights are in our constitution too Jack. But you seem to overlook THAT every chance you get. What’s up with that?

  24. Benny Lexx on October 9, 2019 at 4:02 pm

    I know someone being gangstalked by sheriff funded Citizens On Patrol, Neighborhood Watch terrorist groups

  25. Mekonnen Beyene on October 9, 2019 at 4:04 pm

    I think people in the third world countries have more
    freedom and Liberty than us
    in the US these days.
    I just feel like that.

  26. nunayafb on October 9, 2019 at 4:05 pm

    You are so well informed….

  27. TheParanormal70 on October 9, 2019 at 4:05 pm

    The patriot act is what happened.
    Bush signed this into law,then there is fisa.
    Dhs and local police are using these despite the 4th AMENDMENT.

  28. Robert Jensen on October 9, 2019 at 4:05 pm

    Since when do you liberals CARE about the US Constitution? You’ve all been trying to destroy or change the Second Amendment for over 50 years!

  29. steelers rule on October 9, 2019 at 4:06 pm

    I get it its precrime,that said don’t break the law

  30. nunayafb on October 9, 2019 at 4:07 pm

    Picture this, you see a cop getting a blow job from a hooker, or beating a kid or selling drugs and he tracks you down in minutes by your cell phone and arrests or kills you.
    Or, picture this, you try an organize a political event over the phone that the cops don’t like so they intercept you to detain or harass you.
    Civil liberties for all should not be set aside to catch a few stupid criminals, the smart ones carry burner phones or none at all.
    Please stop speaking against the bill of rights.

  31. Tatersalad19 Cars on October 9, 2019 at 4:08 pm

    all the conspiracy guys were worried about them micro-chipping the population, but they just don’t need to the smartphones give them GPS, YOUR CALL LISTS, FRIENDS, AUDIO AND VIDEO OF YOUR LIFE and people post any shit they might miss on their facebook pages  Orwell was right, he was just off by 30 yrs. everyone has handheld mobile telescreens

  32. Kevin Cross on October 9, 2019 at 4:09 pm

  35. JM Realty on October 9, 2019 at 4:11 pm

    If the young turks care about this issue, then stop defending the anti-constitution people. Obama is the worst offender, and has shred our constitution. Stop being his attack dog!

  36. Whiskey Leaks on October 9, 2019 at 4:12 pm

    I got pulled over as a passenger in a cat not registered. .i had warrants ..cops come full guns out asking if I’m in the car..i asked the cop how he knew I was in the car ..he said magic

  37. Free Manz on October 9, 2019 at 4:12 pm

  38. Ailen Walsh on October 9, 2019 at 4:12 pm

    If anyone wants to learn about what is the best cell phone spy software try *SpyToMobile* (just google it )

  39. Tatersalad19 Cars on October 9, 2019 at 4:15 pm

    The powers that be wiped their ass with our constitution a long time ago

  40. observing citizen on October 9, 2019 at 4:19 pm

    I love how Cenk is soooo quick to quote the 4th, but in the sane breath he is about gun and does not give a shit about the 2nd.

  41. Me Too on October 9, 2019 at 4:19 pm

    I’m in Mesa,Arizona where a police helicopter kept hovering low over my house. I finally got tired of it and gave them the finger. I noticed that since then I am getting followed around by the helicopters. I figured out they are following my cellphone using a "Stingray",or whatever other devices they use now.They’ll also do low passes over my house at 2 or 3am. I can’t believe they are allowed to harass people like that. This has been going on for months. I imagine the fuel and man hour cost they have gone through already. But they got money to burn.

  42. pjo12 on October 9, 2019 at 4:20 pm

    The constitution lol. Combo guys you know no one cares. Once you guys let bush do whatever he wanted anyone with power doesn’t need to follow the constitution.

  43. yuforic on October 9, 2019 at 4:20 pm

    Between the USA Patriot Act, the NDAA, and the Homeland Security Act, this entire line of objection is overruled and rendered moot. Police also track and monitor all cell phone communication including calls, texts, and internet activity through a device called a StingRay.

  44. Dreamers Rock on October 9, 2019 at 4:22 pm

    Need a gun to they head

  45. b babyyy on October 9, 2019 at 4:22 pm

    Give them some privacy thoo

  46. O M on October 9, 2019 at 4:23 pm

    America , the greatest military state !!! Enjoy living there !!:))

  47. Tim D on October 9, 2019 at 4:24 pm

    Last time TYT was talking about cops, it was the reason we don’t need to own guns as citizens. So, cops should only have guns to protect us. It’s great how they use the constitution in this video, then step all over it in another. TYT- Soros’ mouthpiece.

  48. WaveDesigns on October 9, 2019 at 4:24 pm


  49. you`re wrong on October 9, 2019 at 4:24 pm

    really stupid channel name . does anyone like the turks? scrubs jokes aside

  50. Adventures in the Free World on October 9, 2019 at 4:26 pm

    Why is there no mention of how our Constitutional rights are actually negated by the Patriot Act (and the various National Defense Authorization Act and other criminal executive orders signed by the last 2 administrations)??
