Quote:WASHINGTON (AP) â The Drug Enforcement Administration abandoned an internal proposal to use surveillance cameras for photographing vehicle license plates near gun shows in the United States to investigate gun-trafficking, the agency's chief said Wednesday.DEA Administrator Michelle Leonhart said in a statement that the proposal memorialized in an employee's email was only a suggestion, never authorized by her agency and never put into action. The AP also learned that the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives did not authorize or approve the license plate surveillance plan.Automated license plate scanners take pictures of every vehicle that passes their field of view and record the information in a database that can be used to track a vehicle's movements over time.Federal, state and local police agencies routinely use the cameras mounted on patrol cruisers or in fixed locations, such as utility poles or busy intersections. Collectively, they capture the movements of millions of vehicles each day. Private companies, including tow truck agencies, also use them.The scanners have raised significant privacy concerns even though they generally only record cars and trucks driving on public roads. There are no consistent, national rules that govern how police can use the information, how long it can be saved and how widely the records can be shared with other police agencies.The Wall Street Journal reported the DEA's aborted plan in Wednesday's editions.
Maybe somebody should push for laws in Pennsylvania that restrict how license plate scanners are used, how long the images are kept, who has access to the info, and what purpose the info is obtained.

And the NSA will immediately ignore such laws.

Those in power will explain that you have no right to privacy once you are out in public.

I have to chuckle at the words "wanted to" in the thread title.

They can't see me. Planes and helicopters fly overhead all of time, but they can't see me. I wave, smile, and all but give them a salute, but they still can't see me. Ever since I added ketchup between the second and third layers of my foil helmet, I've been invisible to all government three letter agencies and their doting minions.

I'm sorry, but you've been using the wrong condiment. It's supposed to be mayonnaise, and not that miracle whip crap. Sugar negates the foil protection.

The acid in the ketchup eats at the aluminum, that is why you need two inner layers. The result is a counter field of electrons that negates your silhouette profile from all radar or ground imaging detection systems, to include IR. You have to, therefore, change out that inner layer of foil every once in a while.

I may be releasing info that the world isn't quite ready for. But here it goes. In order to acclimate black folks into the world of white folks, a government facility, that I once worked at, has been developing certain products to slowly dilute black culture. We developed:

Wanye Brady (black man, yet acceptable by most white parents to court their daughters. Or as Paul Mooney has been quoted as saying, "White people love Wanye Brady because he makes Bryant Gumbel look like Malcolm X."

Regarding the mayonnaise problem, we developed a condiment that was rich and creamy like mayo, yet had the kick of hot sauce. It's called chipotle sauce!!!!

We were also working on a blend of grape drink/juice but all the test subjects bodies rejected the substitute.

Our sister lab was credited with the development of Eminem, The Beastie Boys and Larry Bird.
