What can I say?

Many will feel protected, safe and secure.

Personally, I would feel violated, suspicious and angry.

You Decide.

Peace

I don't need to feel safe and secure. I'm a very highly skilled and trained mixed martial artist and I know to effectively shoot a rifle, shotgun, handgun, bow, and I've learned how to fight with knives as well as served in the military thanks,

My point is that's the approach more should be taking to safety.

You feel violated because someone sees the plate everyone can see on your car?

People can't find more first world problems to complain

The solution is to boycott the Mall of America until they tell the police to stop using OCR on their private property.

Given the economic conditions many Americans currently face, "first world problems" really isn't the proper term.

The point here is privacy. Someone will see a plate number and most likely forget it within 30 seconds. But this scans every plate so movements are recorded not only through cells but through plate numbers.

The Mall of America is so 20th century. I think Mall of Police State is more fitting. S + F

I don't need them keeping a record of where I am specifically moment to moment.

But the Govt. is taking of your safety for you. They believe you can't be safe without them.

In return, all you have to do is bend over and give up your freedom.

Sounds like a fair trade.

Unfortunately, the masses want to shop more than stand against tyranny.

I don't drive anymore, but here is a remedy for this type of activity.

www.phantomplate.com...


A majority of red light & speed cameras utilize strong flash to photograph the license plate on your car. Once sprayed on your license plate, PhotoBlocker’s special formula produces a high-powered gloss that reflects the flash back towards the camera. This overexposes the image of your license plate, rendering the picture unreadable. With PhotoBlocker, your license plate is invisible to traffic cameras yet completely legible to the naked eye.

Of course. We know every single thing we do is observed and compiled into various databases. They track with cell signals, through the net, drones, satellites, our neighbors, etc.

The more citizens allow, the less rights they will have.

Violation of rights and freedoms IS very much a World problem.

If you're ok with that, no one is stopping you. If someone is not ok with it...shouldn't they have a right?

Peace

I say implement this technology on every street corner. Given the amount of money the government takes in, they can afford it.

My only wish is that citizens will receive daily reports about all elected officials and where their cars go. From Mike's Bar to Cynthia's Legitimate Relaxation Shack, every stop, start, and all times.

They know where we are, we should know where they are.

Police scanning plates with automated systems is good, efficient as a robot makin cars is better than a human.

Imagine if a stolen car is placed with a bomb at a parking lot, with this a patrol passing by would get a flag on the car if it was reported, and a tragedy could be avoided.

This however is what should outrage you all


In their case, they have an agreement with Mall of America. According to Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts, the mall is allowed to access the data


Why a private corporation is allowed to do so

Private corporations are creepy, police doing more efficient small task is not.

I would really like to know how on earth police accepted that agreement, it's like they work for the mall

Unless the have 2 million warrants it does violate the Constitution.

Give away your own rights if you must.

I am not willing to give up a single one of mine.

The mall's allowed to access it for consumer research purposes.

Who parks where, what days, what models, where they shop, what they buy, duration of stays, etc, etc.

That bothers me too. It's like the internet. I don't need ads to look up the weather.
