It's not illegal at all to film people without their knowledge. Your image does not belong to you when you're in public. It's public. The metadata you're concerned about could potentially be used to alert police about, say, your repeated trips to a known drug dealer's house. But what alerted police to illegal activity holds no bearing in court. They'd still have to conduct an investigation using traditional methods for a conviction.<quoted text>And you dont think the government will lie in anyway possible to allow the usage of said illegally obtained evidence? And its acceptable that people will be arrested and tried on this illegally obtained evidence? The point is this must stop and the government must follow the law just like everyone else.
And I truly don't mean to "jump on you" for protecting your rights above all others'. I'm just hoping you'll realize that if everyone always did that, this wouldn't be a republic at all. It would be a totalitarian state. And I hope you'll see that your concerns will always fall largely on deaf ears when your goals are so selfish. This country was built by immigrants who were spit on by the immigrants that arrived before them. Eventually, they all learned that they must work together, collectively, toward a common goal of freedom and liberty for ALL. It seems as if you, and so many white men, completely missed that entire portion of US history and pretend that since they were born here, their rights were also. They weren't. Your ancestors were spit-upon immigrants who stepped off a boat poor and jobless. It would be nice if everyone kept that in mind when they talk about things like "my rights."
