    In this day and age with all the freaks and crime, hopefully this will detour some of the problem.
    If people weren't so mentally disturb this would not have to happen.:D

    You're saying it's a good thing ?
    People today are as 'mentally disturbed' as 20 or 40 years ago, just in a somewhat different manner.
    And nowadays people are of a different breed, there is no way people would have put up with video surveillance, mandatory IDs, registration in all sorts of databases 60 years ago. Life is too convenient, too little adversity just makes people less vigilant.

    There are always problems and there will always be problems, but these days we can 'enjoy' the benefits of camera surveillance, internet tracking, creating huge databases . Only stupid criminals and innocents get caught.

    What about the smart ones? Less then 1%? And if your innocent, what's to hide?

    I guess you're joking ? Irony often doesn't translate well on the web.

    EVERYONE has something to hide.
    Both legal and non-legal.
    You always obey the law ? Never had a ticket for speeding ?
    These days, in North America and most of Europe, there are so many laws and regulations that you cannot possibly know them all, even though you're supposed to know them, and there is no way you 'll never violate the law.
    Frequently, when you comply with one law, you can't help but violate another. Don't ask me for examples, this stuff depends on the country you live in.

    Might=right. Not morally, but 'de facto'.
