More incursions into privacy

This is very disturbing.

The article says: “Despite warnings from state and federal officials that the system may be unconstitutional, the Black Asphalt Electronic Networking & Notification System has gathered information about both criminals and innocent drivers alike, the Washington Post reported Monday. Information shared by approximately 25,000 police officers includes details like motorists’ social security numbers, addresses, identifying tattoos and hunches about which drivers to stop.”

Wonder what’s coming next?

I wish I could say I found this shocking but I can’t

I’m all for confiscating assets generated by criminal means, or intended for criminal use but the assumption of innocence until proven guilty is fundamental.

It can not be OK to confiscate cash without the individuals involved being charged and convicted of a crime.

Please respect our code of conduct which is simple: don't be a dick.
