Should someone who is suspected of a crime and subjected to an investigation via surveilance, tracking, recording, etc, be told about the investigation upon being cleared?
I was reading an article about an ACLU case involving the GPS tracking of a suspect in fraud case for two months. What struck me was that the FBI agent stated that it was essentially done in order to clear the suspect or gather evidence against him.
Assuming he had been cleared, does the suspect have the right to know that he was being tracked by FBI agents for suspicion of fraud?
I believe this information is not currently given out, and unless you are interrogated, or charged, you would never, indeed could never know that you had been a suspect in some criminal activity, am I correct?
Assuming I am, should there be a method for a person to find out? A notice given by law enforcement perhaps?
Lets say LEOs suspect you of dealing drugs. And secretly GPS your car, video and audio tape various private conversations by bugging your home, office, spying on you in public places. In the end all they find out is that you are having an affair with the 200 pound cleaning lady and decide to drop the investigation. Do you feel you should be to told about the investigation? Why or why not? And how much should you be told?
