Directions: Read the following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read.
When I boarded an Amtrak train this summer, I had no idea what kind of ride I was in for.
Upon arrival at my home stop, I realized that my mobile phone was missing. I still had hope, though. A free service can use GPS information to locate lost phones on a map. After a couple of days, the service e-mailed me with a map revealed it to be at a house in Seat Pleasant, Md.
But how was I going to retrieve a phone five states away? On a whim, I posted a note to my blog followers about my lost phone. And I included a map showing the green locator dot over a satellite image of a nondescript house.
It did pay off. Using the address, local police got involved. The homeowner confessed to stealing the phone — no doubt baffled as to how the police had known exactly how to find him. And a day later I had the phone back.
But, to my surprise, not everyone is as happy as I am. Lots of people were disturbed by the affair. They saw my posting the thief’s address as ____________________.
My initial thought was: “Are they expressing sympathy for the thief? When you steal something, don’t you risk giving up some rights? How was my blog post any different from the “wanted” posters of suspects’ photographs that still hang in post offices?”
Of course, the difference in this case is that I, not law enforcement, posted the map and began the chase. Does that constitute a breach of the thief’s rights?
Those are tricky questions. Even when the government or law-enforcement agencies want to get cell location information, the law is not always clear-cut. Sometimes the police require a warrant (许可证) to obtain such information from cell phone companies; in other instances, they do not. In my case, there’s not even much law to guide us. Yet combining the powers of geotracking and social networking seemed such an obvious tactic that, at the time, I hardly gave it a second thought.
In the end, maybe what society really needs is an app called Find My Moral Compass.
