Virginia Police Photograph, Track, and Store License Plate Data at Random…To “Catch Criminals”

Police in Alexandria, Virginia think it’s OK to violate the 4th Amendment. I guess that’s nothing new. Most police don’t really pay attention to the 4th Amendment all that much. They think if a citizen invokes his Constitutional rights to be safe and secure from warrantless searches and seizures, then he must be hiding something. You have to somehow prove your innocence to them in order for them to let you go, and even then, it’s...

Report: The IRS Actually Didn’t Target Liberal Groups

It was nearly a year ago that the IRS started making headlines about their targeting of tea party groups and their delaying or rejecting of various conservative groups’ applications for tax-exempt status based on their political opinions.

An article in the National Journal has the headline “How Google is Trying to Protect Your Drug Supply.” That sounds nice doesn’t it? Your drug supply. The article outlines how Google is now partnering with federal agencies (mostly the FDA) to make sure that dangerous drugs don’t get into the hands of poor, unsuspecting citizens like you.

The American Outcry Stops Obama’s Newsroom Monitors

Last week, one of my colleagues shared with you: An FCC commissioner Ajit Pai wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, warning about a plan that his agency is rolling out that would put monitors in the nation’s newsrooms. News managers and staffers would be interviewed by agency officials about the content that they choose to report on and how they choose certain stories.

Woman Jailed For Recording Her Encounter With Police At A Routine Traffic Stop

Citizens are under constant audio and video surveillance. It’s for our own safety, of course. It might be an invasion of our privacy, but as long you’re not doing anything wrong, you should have nothing to hide. So, it shouldn’t bother you that much to always be under some kind of monitoring, whether it be out in public, or on the internet. Or so they say. If that’s the case, then why do cops hate being recorded so much? Some of them...
