    Licence plate scanners raise privacy concerns- The Globe and Mail

    "
    ALPR technology was introduced in B.C. six years ago with the goal of combating auto theft and motor vehicle violations. Using infrared cameras mounted on top of police vehicles, the technology can scan as many as 3,000 plates an hour, alerting the officer if the plate of a nearby car matches one in the police database. Since its introduction, police have also lauded its potential to quickly scan for criminals in urgent scenarios – kidnappings, for example – and verify alibis of suspects. Victoria police began using the technology in March.

    I feel so much safer when being datamined...

    MG, not just in Kanada. It's here in AmeriKa and elsewhere. Yep, as with most technology, it was originally designed to do something good but has been usurped for the police state for control of the people.

    I should mention, 3k per hour? LMAO! That must be some old technology they are using in BC. I think the latest versions of the scanners are capable of doing 30 plates per second (or over 100K per hour)!

    What frustrates me most....when I have this conversation with people I work with or my lil' bros friends...they just don't get it.
    I've actually had...on numerous occasions....replies like "If you have nothing to hide, what are you worried aboot?"

    Regarding Police State tech in BC....you should see what we have left over from the Olympics...spooky.

    Makes me shake.

    It's no biggie.
    they will just know where you are, at any given time
    and with Geo Fencing, if you say, drive outside of your permitted area, We will know you have and loose the dogs (Hind Helicopters) to intercept you. You had best return to your ghetto slave.

    The kid tried that argument on me. I guess back home there was some move to allow police to listen to and record all civilian phone conversations. The Mr. and I about flipped and she was like, I don't care, I have nothing to hide.

    Oh you don't? sez I. Well then, from now on you have to leave the door to your room open at all times.
    Whaaaa, why?
    I would like to be able to observe you at all times.
    But that's not fair!
    Why, what are you doing in there?
    Nothing! I'm not doing anything!
    Then leave it open. I want to know what you are up to.
    NO, I need my privacy, why are you being like this?
    But if you have nothing to hide then you should not mind.
    I'm not doing anything! So there is no need for you to look in.
    That will be for me to decide. I also need the password to your computer and email, oh and I will want to read your text messages from now on as well. I will let you know if you are doing anything I think is suspicious.

    She has since decided privacy is highly undervalued and no one needs to listen in on her cell phone calls.
