TKC FACT CHECK!!! POLICE TERMS OF SERVICE SECRECY IS WHY TKC BLOG COMMUNITY CAN COVER KANSAS CITY LICENSE PLATE READERS AND LOCAL MSM WON'T MENTION THE SPY TECH!!!



Recently, the most AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS helped this blog break news that license plate readers were a big part of catching the Kansas City highway sniper Mohammed Pedro Whitaker.



It was only the LA times who later confirmed our blog community breaking news report.

Now . . .

HERE'S A BIT OF INSIGHT INTO WHY KANSAS CITY MEDIA IS UNDER A DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL SPY TECH SILENT MODE WHEN IT COMES TO REPORTING LICENSE PLATE READERS!!!

Check it:

Wired: Cops Must Swear Silence to Access Vehicle Tracking System

"How determined? Vigilant Solutions, founded in 2009, claims to have the nation’s largest repository of license-plate images with nearly 2 billion records stored in its National Vehicle Location Service (NVLS). Despite the enormous implications of the database for the public, any law enforcement agency that signs up for the service is sworn to a vow of silence by the company’s terms of service."

"That database is used by law enforcement and others to track stolen cars or vehicles used in crimes, as well as to locate illegal immigrants, kidnapping victims and others — though the vast majority of license plates stored belong to ordinary drivers who aren’t suspected of a crime."

A very astute and KICK-ASS TKC READER reveals asks:

"Do you suppose that this may have had something to do with the fact that hardly anyone talked about the license plate database? What is the first rule of using the license plate database? No one talks about the license plate database!"

Whatever the case, it's important for everybody to know that Kansas City residents are under surveillance even if our local crime trends keep surging upward.

So this is why "Wired" can cover it and you can parrot it like some sort of squawking dimwit.

Maybe with the database we could find out where Mike Sanders spends his time?

That's exactly the problem with these cameras. If the mayor or a councilperson doesn't like someone he could have the KCPD access the database to look for dirt on them. Or suppose a councilperson is critical of the KCPD. Would they track them for dirt? What about someone in authority's ex-wife or ex-girlfriend? Would divorce lawyers bribe cops to stalk someone?
Anyone who thinks either our elected officials or our police department is above that type of activity is being naïve.

What about the license plates on parked cars outside Sheriff Mike Sharp's house on orgy nights? Could those be traced and the drivers harassed?

Most folks say they don't have any problem with routine surveillance like license plate readers. This is because they think they're only used out on the highways, and they feel anonymous in the crowd, and since they're not doing anything illegal, they don't care.

But this type of technology rarely stops with it's initial application. Soon, it will be endemic throughout the metro. They'll know where you shop, who you visit, what your typical daily routine entails.

Ever have a DUI? Better not be detected at a liquor store or nightclub where alcohol is served, because a police car will be there waiting for you to drive away.

Are you a minority group like homosexuals? Better not park anywhere near the gay clubs or meeting spots, because the police will spot your license plate.

TOTAL INVASION OF PRIVACY!!!

This is a great place for those of us with anger-resentment issues.

It's not individual law enforcement can't talk about it. It's just that all plates logged into the data base are criminal suspects with cases pending future trials.

Are talking about the readers that are on cop cars or is there something rlse?

I'm not a cop, but I see you said...

Because driving around on public streets and highways, visible to every normal person, pervert, nut-job, and criminal out there is a very private activity. How dare anyone trying to solve a murder, or a rape, or trying to find people with felony warrants or stolen cars be able to view what everyone else is able to view. It definitely would be in the best interest of all of us if we could tie their hands as much as possible.

Thank you, Tony, for bringing this horrid injustice to light.

1:38 it isn't just what others can view. It is much about how it is viewed and stored. A human mind can not memorize 1000 plates an hour, run them or remember the names of address of every tag owner. This is the basis for may having issues with technologies that are so advanced they become invasive. We all want effective law enforcement, but do I really want a cop beating on my door because he flew over or a drone flew over my home and picked up heat? The country was not founded on a premise that we should all have to stand around on the streets proving to a police officer that we are innocent. Nor should plain view be interpreted to mean that if a device can circumvent all reasonable human capability we should be subject to scanning. logging, data collect, dissemination or other dispositions without or consent, knowledge or without the advanced scrutiny of a magistrate. The country was not set up to be that way. We also would not use a parabolic amplified microphone to eaves drop into household conversations just because someone standing a foot out side a window might be able to hear a conversations. Technology is not the enemy, but as long as courts refuse to bring themselves into the new age there will continue to be issues with how technologies are used. Even the crooks have the right to know the rules of the game and so far there has been a pretty poor job in clarifying them. Until case law catches up (sometime this century) we are going to continue to send people to jail based on evidence that will very likely be ruled inadmissible in the future.

This info could be stored but not accessed unless there was a serious crime committed and then the access would be logged. All other info would be dumped in a short period of time. But this won't happen because the real reason for storing this data is control.

police state KC wouldn't be so bad if the Mayor and his gang weren't a bunch of crooks!

The Supreme Court ruled that you have no right to privacy when you operate a motor vehicle on the street with regard to your license plate. Any law enforcement officer can conduct a computer check of your license plate at any time for any reason. With that check a law enforcement officer can access your DOR information, such as name and address. These readers do store information that can be accessed, and are a vital part of solving all types of crime. To the person who complained about the city council or mayor using the information to stalk, harass individuals, that is why it is so vitally important to keep the KCPD under state control.

Of course an added issue is why the hell are corporations being allowed to collect information and then charge governments for the information they should never be allowed to posses. Same shit with the red light cam tickets. You run a red light and here some company in Arizona had full access to state records while they profited from every ticket they issued. So why do corporations get their hands on personal information that no citizen can legally acquire or store?

Anonymous said...

Who says your cant acquire it and store it? We live in a capitalistic society, get an idea and make it work, get rich. Even though your boy Obama is trying to turn our country into a socialist country. There is no right to privacy and it is not illegal to store license plate numbers or the information that is public record through the DOR.

If all this great equipment is so sophisticated and effective, why can't KCMO do much of anything to curb the over 100 homicides that take place in a fifty square block area of the city year after year?
It's not just equipment. It's leadership, priorities, accountability, and the guts to ignore the wails of racism from the usual suspects and go after the thugs.
Right, Sly?

5:16 Obama might be your boy, but he isn't mine. I do, however, have issues with government spying. If it doesn't bother you just pit your name, SSAN and DOB in a post and I'll give you some info that might change your mind and embarrass your family.

Anonymous said...

It isn't spying, it is legal information that you can obtain no matter who you are. You can find anything you want with just a name. All records are open to the public, and can be obtain via the sunshine act. How exactly is that spying? Your license plate is issued by the state for your use and the information contained is not private. Because it records you were driving on a certain street or parked at a certain spot that is spying? I don't think so.

If everything that happens on a city street is public what would happen if I hired someone to follow the mayor and council 24/7 on city streets and park in front of their homes?
