    Hmmmm.......

    "Such a" does not imply that the database does not exist.

    From your earlier post to me, I understand why they want it. And that does make sense. If the system is somehow blind...does the correlation in the background...pops up names/addresses with a warrant after correlation, then there'd be no issue. Other than that, I think it remains yet another right we're giving up for the public good. Slippery.
    That information is already available to anyone willing to pay for it.

    Can't just plop this down and scoot, my friend. Where? Link substantiating? Thanks. I rather doubt it, since if it's already available, the sheriffs wouldn't by trying to get it . . . ?

    Correct, correct, correct. Its also not what this particular database even bothers recording.... So. irrelevant.
    I have terminal cancer and spend $2,000 a month on morphine. Nobody's business.
    It is the business of the government if you are doc shopping in order to obtain multiple prescriptions in a small amount of time, which is what this database tracks.

    What medications someone takes is very personal information. It's a clear violation of HIPPA, imo. Now you might say, "Hey, that never happens." I won't agree with you because coppers can be curious, malicious, or big-mouthed -- just like anybody else.
    Its also a clear violation of what would be similar to DCI regulation and policy. Such violations will get a person fired and cause them to lose their certification. Just ask the jackass who tried to look up information through DCI/NCIC on President Obama, obviously without a need to do so. Every time I run a tag, it is recorded with my system login, and if there becomes an issue, or even an accusation of wrongdoing, it can be checked into. I don't see why such a policy would not be implimented IF law enforcement would have access to this.

    I learned a long time ago that the less the police, judges, jailers, and government know about me the better. It's called: keeping your name off of the list. I still stand by that premise. It's true in countries all over the world.

    Computer data bases have made a really huge list. I will not be on that list. You may call it being paranoid of nothing that will hurt me in the long run. I call it better safe than sorry.

    HIPPA is Federal. State sherriffs don't have and won't get jurisdiction. No Federal Judge will write a warrant for any state LEO. If the Feds want enforcement, then that is what the DEA is for, not any local yokel. Stick a fork in it, it's done.
