'You are being tracked': ACLU reveals docs of mass license plate reader surveillance
[link to rt.com]


The American Civil Liberties Union has released documents confirming that police license plate readers capture vast amounts of data on innocent people, and in many instances this intelligence is kept forever.

According to documents obtained through a number of Freedom of Information Act requests filed by ACLU offices across the United States, law enforcement agencies are tracking the whereabouts of innocent persons en masse by utilizing a still up-and-coming technology.

This is crazy!

I saw the first one today mounted on the trunk of a patrol car in Darien, CT.

Wondered what that was - did not look like any radar gun I'd ever seen.

Now I know what it was!!!!

Yeah, that was probably your local police dept testing/calibrating/familiarizing with the system. More and more cities will be using these systems as time goes on.

DOT Traffic cameras that monitor major and minor roadways, equipped with these readers, can probably place you at a certain point at a certain time. But if you have GPS in your car, you're already tracked.

I saw one mounted on a police car a few months ago in Loudoun County, VA.
I think those are now a part of the DoJ's EPIC training..

Yep its all coming out. It has to. Every lie and secret revealed. There is a coordinated effort to get the truth out.

The next major revelation will be that every auto manufacturer signed off on an agreement to make every car manufactured after 2008 able to be remotely piloted.

I happen to be a geek and I keep all my stuff forever. Am I ever going to use this stuff in the future? For the most part NO!

This is what geeks do. All of the License plate numbers etc., etc., etc fall into the hands of geeks. Do you think they're any different from me?

I'm taking care of my dad in one of the biggest cities in California. The people here are really sheeplelized. I'm from a rural area that is not government dependent. Here, it is full of many different cultures that never melted. They all do their own thing and don't talk about "the melting pot "not even warm. No one here would care about tracking. They are all on their I phones ....constantly and being tracked. They post up what they are doing every second. Privacy is a foreign word around here, the noose is tightening . 1984 in spades.

Yup, seen the fuckers using this bullshit in Round Rock, Texas. The first time was, hmmmm, at least 6 months ago. Just another way for the cocksuckers to make more money, guess the "red light cams weren't bringin in enough. Also something else for they & TPTB to abuse.

Scary stuff. Minnesota's only holding onto them for 48 hours doesn't seem too bad if it was true, but you can never trust them to honor their word despite the policy. Besides, you know the NSA is tapping into all of these.

Re: 'You are being tracked': ACLU reveals docs of mass license plate reader surveillance
I found it strange that Tennessee license plates have this DNA strand that goes down the middle of it. You can only see it if light hits it at a certain way. I looked it up and they say it's to identify an authentic tag. I just thought it was strange that it was a double helix strand. Couldn't they use something else besides something that looks like DNA?
