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.

Oh really they need a warrant to write down your plate in the computer they got on patrol to check it?
This is what the thing is supposed to do check plates automatically instead of having the cop doing it manually, but you all like the propaganda of the tv making it sound more insidious in the eternal search for ratings.

Getting the data without probable cause = violation of civil rights. Sharing the data, I'm not sure what crime that would be but it's morally wrong. I wonder when Walmart, Best Buy and other big box stores and malls will start doing this if they haven't already. Bastards all of 'em.
