Another step in the direction of "big brother" control of our lives is being taken by police forces across North America who are now using 'license plate readers' to scan all the cars around their police vehicles as they drive through town.
We have them here in Canada too, but down in the States a lot of the cops are claiming they are for monitoring "terrorist activity" (so they can get federal funding) while we all know that the real reason for these things is because they are a giant revenue grab for the police forces! (That, and the fact that it's just a lot of fun to fuck with people!)
Yup, they tell the cops if your plates are expired, if you owe money for tickets and even if there are any warrants out for you.
IN OTHER WORDS FOLKS, YOU CAN RUN, BUT YA CAN'T HIDE!
And that's not the full extent of it folks, down in the States the entire justice and political system is turning into one huge cash grab that should scare the pants off every man, woman and child in the country!
1) Civil asset forfeiture and keeping at least part of the money even when the asset is found innocent
2) Charging non citizens overseas with crimes
3) License plate readers tracking horrific criminals who owe a pittance of an unpaid ticket
4) Pulling people over for traffic violations even when none occurred
5) Shooting unarmed people claiming 'fear for ones life' to keep the hordes inline
6) Failing to disclose all that needs to be disclosed by the prosecution in order to threaten greater charges if a guilty plea is not entered
7) Money in politics where corporations can buy the laws they want instead of the laws the constituents want
8) Political parties who pressure legislators to vote their way or be gone
