PRYING Eyes Are Watching YOU!

Kathryn Watson of Watchdog.org writes from Alexandria, Virginia:

The police know exactly where my car has been — and when — during the past few months.

They could have the same information — or more — about you.

Curious to learn what the police gathers and stores about her own movements, Watson asked them for her personal information, noting that she has nothing more than parking tickets on her record. What she learned was “unsettling,” to say the least. [emphasis added]

In all, police captured 16 photos of my car — mostly at night — and recorded my license plate eight times on five dates — from October 2013 to as recently as April 1.

In January, a license plate reader captured my plate twice while my car was parked in the lot of my apartment complex, according to latitude and longitude records.

Police also captured records of my car as I  drove to Bible study on a typical Wednesday night in March.

Still, others were captured in various spots around Old Town Alexandria. …

The state’s highest constitutional office has already said random collection and storage isn’t legal — but many local police departments in Virginia continue to do it.

The top-of-the-line ALPR technology allows local police departments like Alexandria’s to capture up to 1,800 license plates per minute

That’s exactly why civil rights advocates such as John Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute in Charlottesville, said the widespread collection and preservation of license plate data not only potentially violates search and seizure rights in the Fourth Amendment, but it also makes people leery to exercise their First Amendment rights.

In 2008 and 2009, the Virginia State Police, which now regularly expunges records but still collects them, captured license plate data of people at political rallies for Sarah Palin and Barack Obama.

It could be used against you later,” Whitehead said earlier this month. …

It can and will be used against you “later.”

Capturing and storing information about everyone’s movements (e.g., as they attend a Palin rally) makes people afraid to exercise their Constitutional rights of freedom of speech and freedom to associate and assemble, which is certainly one of the goals of the Obama administration when it comes to their political opponents.

In addition, if the government can capture license plates of people attending rallies for Obama, then they can find their names and addresses, too.  Then “later,” these presumed-pro-Obama “folks” can be targeted for political ads and get-out-the-vote activities, which has always been a goal of the Obama campaigners, especially ACORN and ACORN-like groups.

Who believes that, given this juicy database, the powers-that-be in Virginia and the federal government won’t tap the data for political purposes?

It can certainly be credibly argued that the political usefulness of the information is exactly why the data is being collected.

As we’ve seen with the illegal data collection done by the NSA, as we’ve seen with the illegal targeting of political adversaries by the IRS, the Obama administration and its fellow travelers continue to ignore the laws and the U.S. Constitution. 

Unless something radically changes in the elections of 2014 and 2016, those “private”

 prying eyes will be watching you, watching you, watching you …

forever more. Welcome to the Police State of America.

The USA becomes the PSA … “fundamentally transformed” before your very

  1. What Eric Holder Doesn’t Want to Talk About….
    ~ @ VDH’s Private Papers …. Victor Hanson …

    • “By this ahistorical and incoherent racialist calculus, the child of a Kentucky coal miner or a Dust Bowl migrant has more social capital by virtue of a genetically endowed “white skin privilege” than a half-white Harvard-trained lawyer. The immense advantages bestowed by parents with college degrees and non-ghetto zip codes are invisible. Many middle and upper class blacks enjoy what David Horowitz and John Perazzo call “black skin privilege,” even as in the sixth year of Obama’s presidency millions of their underclass fellows remain mired in unemployment, dependence, crime, addiction, and broken homes.”

      Exactly. This is a great article. I didn’t realize just how many “mulattoes” are surrounding Barry. AS THEY have the gall to call Justice Thomas, a truly “authentic” black man, a self-made man, who rose from the bottom to the top, an “Uncle Tom”. These hypocrites who were handed, literally handed, everything on a silver platter so they could eat from it with the silver spoon they were born with in their mouths. These hating racists.

    • A stretch. Possibly sisters or half sisters but just do not see the resemblance. Power of suggestion just like the side by sides of O and FMD. There is nothing alike but told they are alike and seems people see so much alike. Just my opinion.

  2. YEP! IF U SEE ..Something…SAY something!!! STAND UP AMERICA!!!

    ~ STAND UP ~ PLEASE…. before IT’S 2 LATE! slap your-self AWAKE!

    • RIP. After reading this, I believe that all of us belong there as editors:

      “Ms. Wadewitz defied many of the stereotypes of a Wikipedia editor — young, male, tech-obsessed. But she was typical of Wikipedia editors in “being persnickety, fact-obsessed, citation-obsessed,” Ms. Gardner said.”

      That’s the trouble with “birthers”. So many of them are annoyingly FACT-obsessed and CITATION-obsessed, not to mention persnickety.

  3. Hey ya know what we aren’t talking about anymore?
    Whatever happened to that doggone plane?
    292 peple gone, oh well.
    There were some peeps, just a few, from the Indian Ocean but the
    batteries would be dead by now.
    Looks like were going to have to give up on it.
    Call me suspicious,
    but I think anyone who had a black box could put some dead batteries
    in it and drop it in the sea.
    Why would they do that?
    Why indeed!

  4. By the way, what does persnickety mean?
