“Earlier this year, the Los Angeles Police Department and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department [not shown] refused to release data about what license plates police cameras had captured on the grounds that every single car seen is under investigation. All of them. And a judge bought that argument,” reason.com‘s J.D. Tuccille writes. “Now, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the ACLU of Southern California are looking to the California Court of Appeals for a dose of sanity (yes, that strikes me as a Hail Mary pass, too) and a ruling that the public has a right to know how many people’s movements are being monitored by the police, whether deliberately or through incidental data gathering.” TTAG Reader JB makes a good point about that . . .
Just wait until all guns are required to be SMART guns, and all guns are under investigation at all times . . .
I nearly drove off the road when a friend of mine suggested that it would be a great thing if every gun could be tracked in real time, using GPS chips. “That way could see a pattern of dots converging on a school or bank, etc. and either deactivate the gun or send police units just in case.” The guy works for a Fortune 500 company and is a graduate of one of the “top” universities in the South.
