License Plates, Law Enforcement and Violations of Privacy

Hosted by

Have you been to a marijuana dispensary? How about a gun show, an abortion clinic—or the home of somebody you’re not married to? Federal, state and local police may well have a visual record—picked up during blanket surveillance of automobile license plates. It’s supposed to be about drug traffic and stolen cars, but critics call it another massive violation of privacy rights protected by the Constitution. The NSA knows what you do on the Internet. Now, law enforcement knows where you’ve been.

Also, Romney drops out of the 2016 presidential race, and personalized medicine gets a boost from the President.
