I Can't Vouch for This Site...

...but this posting contains some frightening allegations about the Automatic License Plate Readers that I believe are "standard equipment" on all photo-enforcement cameras:
...Maryland State has a network of technical security databases which access the databases of all other states who comply and coordinate with them. For states who do not willfully comply, or those who are not set up to align technically, Maryland mines data from various LEO systems.

Maryland has a rather innocuous sounding name for the intelligence hub which contains this data, it's called Maryland Coordination and Analysis Center.

The intelligence analysis hub has access to, and contains, Florida's CCW list (among other identification systems) and mines the state's database systems for vehicle plate numbers of the holders. These license plate numbers are then stored in a cross referencing database within the Maryland Coordination and Analysis Center.

The database is directly connected to another Maryland technological system - Their ALPR (Automatic License Plate Reader) system is synergized with the MCAC Hub.

Every time one of the flagged license plates are detected by the ALPR an alert is generated...

That was the first information I've seen that his wife was an idiot and caused all the trouble. Makes it tough to sue or sue Obama for his executive orders creating an atmosphere of hate and discrimination by his previous executive orders on information sharing.

Who wouldn't buy a piece of the lawsuits anymore.

Yeah...

...The husband stuck me as not being "half-slow" as a gun owner himself, married to a woman who seems to dislike the concept, with no prior discussion between them as to how to behave in potential interactions with criminals or police.

That said, the scope of the surveillance state is still frightening.

He has a law suit under Penn vs Commonwealth. The Supremes decided many years ago that there is a right to travel. Absent any violation of law observed by the officer, there was no probable cause for the stop.

From the actions of the shift commander, it appears NJ is aware of the doo-doo they steped in. I expect it's more of an action by an over zealous nit than planned operation. Since IA was also involved, things may get real intersting for the idiot.

The line about "flagged license plates" does cause me concern. Even if it was the action of a bored, fascistic nit, why was it possible to flag that particular field? Think I'll be driving around the PDRM in the future. I already had to cancel a school because of their idiot restrictions. Yeah, the state cops advised me about an unofficial work around, but if I got stopped by Barney Fife, I was gonna room in the stone motel until it got straightened out. No thank you very much.

I hate Maryland too, and I was born there. I have been trying to get my sister to move out for 30 years. I absolutely abhor "going home" since it doesn't feel like it anymore. It's like visiting another country, one that is a police state, and the city of Baltimore is becoming one huge ghetto, a very unsafe one.

I'll stop now, I know that I am preaching to the choir.

You guys hate Maryland? You should try living in NY. Cuomo is killing us over here with these stupid SAFE Act laws. NY...Where Firearms owners are not wanted.

OK, Fox News has something about how various government entities are getting both license plate readers and database access. IRS, NPS, NFS... the beat goes on.

The National Park Service scanning incoming vehcles to see if they're on an wanted list? Smokey the Bear doing the same?

I try to ignore consipiricy theory, but damn, this is starting to look like the eyeball scanners of Minority Report.
