In other states the dangling carrot of mission creep has lept to claims of finding terrorists and pedophiles. 



Found him!    1600 Pennsylvania Ave.


Congress is investigating USA Gymnastics.  Will likely soon investigate USA Swimming (same reason).   When are they gonna investigate USA Pedophile in Chief ??

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Whats law:

S.B. 359  Signed by Governor. Chap. 365
Relates to uninsured motorists; creates the Uninsured Vehicle Enforcement Program; provides the Program shall be implemented and administered by the district attorneys; allows participating agencies to use automatic license plate reader systems; creates a central database; creates an exemption relating to Oklahoma Open Records Act; requires a report; creates an Uninsured Vehicle Enforcement Diversion Program; creates a fund; requires a report; provides an effective date.



What lobbyists killed:

S.B. 1144  Status: Failed - Adjourned.
Relates to license plates; creates the "Automatic License Plate Reader Privacy Act"; provides definitions; prohibits certain use of automatic license plate reader systems; provides exceptions to restrictions; prescribes certain preservation and access; stipulates reporting requirements; requires certain compliance; defines penalties; requires certain privacy; States certain severability; provides for codification; provides an effective date.



Emphasis mine. Experience has taught us that any government moving around millions of dollars without public accountability ultimately ends in scandal.

ICE has contracted with Vigilant Solutions, a company that helps law enforcement agencies track license plates on cars in real time. Russell Brandom, who reported the story for The Verge, says police departments mount cameras on their cars or in fixed locations to read license plates. Those numbers are then cross-checked with databases to see if a car has been stolen or if the owner has an active warrant or expired license.

Brandom says municipalities have different agreements with Vigilant. But many have agreed to let the company service the cameras at a discount or for free in exchange for feeding data back to the company.

“It really is this sort of nationwide surveillance network that's been built up privately outside of the reach of a lot of the safeguards that would normally exist if ICE had built this database itself or if we were getting it, sort of, from federal agency,” Brandom says.

ICE could tap into Vigilant’s database, search for a specific license plate and see where it’s been. ICE could also potentially enter a license plate into a “hot list,” so that the agency would be alerted if the plate was spotted, says Brandom.

“You have ICE becoming much more aggressive and much less targeted and, sort of, coherent,” Brandom says. “And I think when you have that being mediated by a private corporation, it gets even more complicated.”

A couple of questions....

Would you rather have spent millions and millions of taxpayer dollars to deploy a duplicate system?

Will you have the same problem when (not if) Facebook/Google/Uber contract with the PRIVATE COMPANY to get the data for mining?  Or just because ICE is using it that you have issues.   

What if ICE is excluded but the FBI/NSA/EPA/FAA/whoever is allowed...   Does that make it better?
