What I heard, and this is second hand, is that the plate scanners were all bought with federal/DHS money. Your mileage may vary.It's funny they never mention how much these systems cost the taxpayer to keep all of this running but the budget keeps getting larger every year . I'm wonder just where did I sign up for this type of surveillance ? I'm believing that this is a blatant misuse of public funds because after seeing how many lawsuits were filed in other states that have this . It is just another invasion of privacy that the county / state legislators " thought it was a good idea " to fight crime . These people need to be unemployed right now !
Thanks, but I do worry about it. Upstate NY hasn't exactly been a hub of terrorist activity, nor has anyplace in the US, there's simply no reason for this kind of surveillance. It's meant with the future in mind, and that's disturbing as hell.Don't worry about it. Cell phone tracking probably has better info has to where you travel, and who you talk to.
Its both you should worry about. First they prove your car was somewhere and then they look at cell phone to prove your phone was there... Then they can reasonably assume you were there too.Don't worry about it. Cell phone tracking probably has better info has to where you travel, and who you talk to.
I know right?Well they have a wasted space for my information. Going to Walmart, Work, Grocery Store and Home. That is very vital information. It was well worth it.
Show what BS they are spewing. They claim that it has solved major crimes, but then admit they don't know what the F it does because they don't keep track."There are privacy concerns and there are legitimate public safety concerns. In every occasion it's important to look at those and find a balance," said Michael Green, executive deputy director of the state Division of Criminal Justice Services, which has paid for equipment to store the records and encourages its use. "If you look at the public safety side, they are another tool that have allowed them to solve significant cases - murders, rapes."
How often use of these records help solve crimes after the fact is not clear. Several police officials told the Democrat and Chronicle they don't keep track.
