Cameras Capturing Plates Plus Location

“There’s no real concern for privacy unless you’ve done something wrong. If you’ve done something wrong –you’re a murderer, if you are a child abductor, if you’ve committed a crime or if you haven’t made your car payments in a long time –then that’s a permissible purpose as well. It’s perfectly legal. It’s not infringing on anyone’s rights,” says Scott Jackson, with MV TRAC.

They're using it to hunt veterens lately


We should..

..all be able to come over and look in Scott Jackson's sock drawer if he isn't doing anything wrong.

"Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty" TJ

it's not "perfectly legal"

that is such a bullshit statement. it's perfectly ILLEGAL and you aren't going to do a fucking thing about it.

read the 4th 5th and 6th amendments.
DUE PROCESS. running plates = suspecting of crime = you need probable cause. what is the probable cause for running my plates? there isn't any... driving down the road is not probable cause.

i smell the largest class action law suit in history...

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

My buddy repo's cars.. They

My buddy repo's cars.. They have used one of these devices for years.

that's probable cause...

if you suspect a certain car parked somewhere to be the car you need to repo... a Black GMC Envoy parked in front of the suspects building or work place, etc ... THAT is your probable cause to run the plate... It is also a private comapny that can be held accountable for their actions.

what is the probable cause for running all plates that drive down the road? all black GMCs? just owning a style of car does not make you a criminal or a suspect.... and to top it all off, it's the government doing it, there is no accountability and you can only sue "yourself and your neighbor" for someone elses illegal actions ... pathetic.

they are saying that everyone is suspected of a crime... it's sick and wrong.
