Lawsuit filed against Lee’s Summit for automated license plate reader surveillance program

Lee’s Summit resident, Bob Gough, filed a lawsuit in Jackson County Circuit Court against the City of Lee’s Summit for its automated license plate reader surveillance program. The lawsuit’s goal is to ask the court to block Lee’s Summit license plate reader surveillance program. Gough is the Executive Director of the Jackson County Taxpayers Association.

Gough states: “We live in an era where the federal NSA saves every email we send, copies the front and back of every letter we send, records the date, time and phone number of every phone call we make, every credit card transaction, every check we write, every stock transaction, and every air travel trip we take.

“Now, using automatic surveillance cameras, the Lee’s Summit Police Department records every auto trip we take using high speed automated license plate readers. The police record the license plate data, the date, time, location, and photo of every vehicle parked or moving, and sends the information to a California company for storage in an undisclosed location. The Police record and store information on when and where we shop, bank, worship, visit friends, visit restaurants, gun stores, and attend lodge meetings.

“The vehicle owner’s name and address is easily obtained and matched to the license number by the police in the blink of an eye by technology already in place. No search warrant is requested or obtained by the Police for this intrusive surveillance and data storage of law abiding citizens.”

The suit asks the court to require the City to comply with Missouri Sunshine Law statutes and reveal the data collected on law abiding citizens going about their daily activities. The suit also asks the court to require the city to remove all automatic license plate reader surveillance cameras used to collect and store the data.

You should worry because they are selling your information to retailers including where, when, and how long you shop. They are always watching you before you know it they will be reading you're thoughts and will arrest you before you even commit a crime
