So recently I watched a Movie called "Snitch" it was based on a true story and about a kid whose buddy sent him a box of drugs in the mail in an
attempt to lessen his own prison sentence. I recommend watching it as it is truly an eye opener.
Now imagine if I could set up someone I was mad at with a simple phone call, email or text? Maybe I am a pissed off girlfriend and I go to your
email, Facebook or phone book and send out a threatening email.
People are already going to jail for thought crimes in this Country. If I had a dollar for every time I said I wanted to kill someone or break
someone in half or run them off a roadway I would be wealthy beyond belief. However I never did any of those things as I was able to vent my rage.
Take away the ability to vent that rage and sooner or later, POP!
When I was a pissed off kid the lack of mediums like Facebook, twitter and forums such as these probably kept my loud mouthed ass out of jail........
Kinda like criminalizing a fist fight in school. If the dogs can't nip at each other once in a while for fear of being locked in a cage sooner or
later they will explode and kill something. What makes us think we are any different?
This level of surveillance and the ability to store decades of information combined is a ticking time bomb. With it now being public knowledge it is
only a matter of time until every law enforcement agency in the Country has quick and easy access to your entire life. Do we really want to give up
that much freedom?

Had to add this: Imagine yourself being accused of a crime you did not commit. Now imagine yourself on the stand in your own testimony when the
prosecutor asks "Where were you on June 17th at 3:47pm" You reply "I think I was taking a shower getting ready for work". His response? "Sir you are
a liar, At 3:47pm you were watching pornographic videos". Truly sit down and think about the ramifications of the Government keeping better records
of your life than you do..........
