Menlo Park Police want to know all about you!

It has come to my attention that the Menlo Park Police are contemplating the purchase of equipment and capacity for capturing all license plate numbers and storing them. Apparently they made a presentation to that effect to the City Council and were challenged about privacy issues by the vice-Mayor.
Here is an interesting article from CNN that addresses this issue. We are now in the throes of privacy issues as the government, at the federal, state and local levels is engaging in ever greater data collection that is highly intrusive on our privacy. Our Constitution guarantees our privacy.
We must not let government encroachment into our private lives -- for whatever reason -- change the United States into "1984."
All your news. All in one place. Every day.
