Letter: We are better off without license plate readers

Shame on the Menlo Park City Council for buying license plate readers.

The Police Department should not be made into a local version of the NSA.

Instead of compiling a database of residents from license plate records and crafting rules for use to protect privacy, privacy will be served more effectively by not collecting the information in the first place.
