Any time a law enforcement tool is used that gets one race arrested more than white folk the aclu gets pissed, instead of being greatfull that stolen cars, wanted people, and suspended people are arrested and taken off the road. They would rather you let them get into a accident and kill someone than let them be caught

I have no problem with law enforcement accessing stored video from time/place of a specific crime to apprehend, but would not want ALL data recorded to be used for other purposes.

You would think that Tea Party members would be all about this, but no... just one liberal and a kooky libertarain. We welcome an Orwellian society with open arms. Oh please big brother, protect us, for we don't know what we do

Just like for search and seizure, lack of probable cause is impossible to prove after the fact.

I'd prefer cameras as a deterrent to crime than our armed to the teeth society.

The NSA recorded the post you just made, knows where it came from as well as any phone conversations you made today?

It's quote possible, haven't you read the expanded version of the Patriot Act?
.
I'll break it down, all social media has been deemed public, so there is no expectation of privacy, should it be made "private" such as in facebook, then it is the property of facebook or which ever social media that you use. They willingly share that with the government, so yes. They have a record of every post and every IP address that it came from.(that also goes for any public computer or corporate computer). Obama's expansion of the patriot act allows for the government to monitor phone calls warrantlessly if one is deemed a terrorist threat, but the definition of terrorist threat has been so obsucred that even a Ron Paul supporter could be considered part of a militia that is considered a terrorist threat.
.
What's the old saying, "let them look, I'm not doing anything wrong?"
