Policing advocates defend use of high-tech license plate readers

Jul 18, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: CNN

David Roberts remembers his days as a Denver police cadet in 1970: It was roll call, just like in the old TV dramas, and every cop was handed a "hot sheet" of vehicles totaling 10 pages, with license plate numbers printed in six columns.

Godless government enforcers, their desire for power and control is unabatable.

ACLU will lose this one if they take it on.

You don't have a "reasonable expectation of privacy" for information on the outside of your car when you are driving around in public.

At the same time the police shouldn't have the ability to track your movements wherever you go which can lead to abuse. I think that is the main objective of the ACLU here. You should be able to maintain some right of privacy of your daily life when going from one place to another, imo. I hope something at least comes out of this that prevents police departments from being able to keep data on non-suspects.

That's true, but kind of a more complex issue. They still have to have probable cause and I'm all for making sure that requirement is consistently met and subject to judicial oversight.

I generally support the ACLU, especially on the First Amendment stuff because I think they get that right. I do sometimes disagree with them on the Fourth Amendment issues. I'd agree that there's no valid reason for the to keep data on non-suspects.

I guess this doesn't affect black men. Most of them have a fat white woman driving them around.

If this were the exact same issue with someone else in office, you would be complaining louder than anyone.
The fool allegedly from Seattle falls back on the old Nazi/KGB mantra: If you're not doing anything illegal you have nothing to worry about.
