Los Angeles Just Proposed the Worst Use of License Plate Reader Data in History.
Nick Selby

This is an entirely too expensive use of public funds in addition to the creep factor of spying on those that don’t need or deserve to be spied upon. Where does all this funding come from, and why aren’t they spending more of it on trying to rehabilitate the prostitutes by helping them overcome their miserable, wayward lives? Then there’s the mailbox effect. Try explaining getting lost in the wrong part of the city when your significant other reads that note! There’s also the question of your name going into a database that it doesn’t belong in, and the unknown ramifications you could get slammed with later on down the line. This idea is like a bad computer virus that’s escaped from the system and gone live, with the potential to wreak havoc on innocent victims.
