    Re: Driving somewhere? There's a gov't record of that

    Could you imagine man power needed to actually monitor all of that supposed collected and stored information? Lets just look at one city for example. How many vehicles are moving about at any given time in somewhere like Los Angeles? Sure they might have that info somewhere but I doubt they will ever do anything with it.

    ANd I know people that literally drive in circles for hours for entertainment, they call it cruising. Cruising alone would log thousands of hours of information to mix. They would need a reason to piece together what one driver was doing. It would be a impossible job to keep tabs on everyone's vehicles. Even with special software you would still need a reason to bother.

    Looks at the data, they have to scan millions of plate to catch 100 crooks. It's ridiculous. We don't have to justify what freedom we've lost, the police have to justify spending out tax dollars; and don't forget that.

    It completely disgusts me that people are fine with being spied on if it stops crime.
    Its part of that "I got nothing to hide so its okay if...." mentality that some sheeple have.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    These clowns have huge balls asking us to justify why we should be able to keep our liberties. Who the hell do they think they are?

    Sure. But they can't track progress of your bike by license plate because it doesn't have one. It seems that is your hang up so I gave you a solution.

    Re: Driving somewhere? There's a gov't record of that

    I sense that many on this thread that have a problem with this would be very thankful if their kidnapped child or stolen car was returned due to the usage of cameras. Again, this isn't private data that the gov't is hoarding. It is something you do in public. It's something that you have already acknowledged is okay to do in front of other people. Could it be abused? Sure. I'm not acting as if it couldn't. However, there are many things we trust the gov't with that could be abused ie the military, our tax money (holy crap do they abuse that), etc. Part of our gov't system involves trust. Our gov't does not deserve any right now, but that's the way it is.

    Joko...I posted a thread apology for hitting Henrin for that comment in this thread....and I sent him a PM making another apology for bringing up the issue in really what is an inappropriate thread. He didn't respond so....??? I tried to be a gentleman about it. Oh well.

    I really did think that he support the issue. Apparently I was wrong. But again, this was not the forum to hit him with my comment.

    In this day and age, it's probably rather cheap to keep all that info on file. You could have OCR software that converts the plates into text, and adds it to a searchable database.

    Do it for the children, the other most used reason for giving in. The data does not support a massive benefit. It shows that by collection gazillions of bits of data, we've apprehended virtually a handful of people. And you're right, trusting the government is difficult and should be.

    What "data" are you looking at?
