So if you go to a gun show parking lot with these up and running don't think it could not be used one day for a new reason or two. They will surely use this in time for new laws or regulations.,guilty until proven innocence is the new paradigm that is coming and if they tell you differently then think about this below

The Green Dragon Inn Revolution would never had happen in Boston with the Indians and tobacco. They will tell you they destroy all records in 6 months time is a feel good line to make you feel safe.

The TALON network offers up to 500 million scans of vehicles a month, according to one email obtained by Motherboard. Over 500 police departments in more than 1,000 cities have access to Flock cameras, according to marketing material. In the promotional video, the company claims to be able to detect people, cars, animals, and bicycles, and says it is "collecting evidence" that helps police solve 4 to 5 crimes per hour. The administrator of the neighborhood's camera network can make the data Flock captures available to, say, the police, the home owner association's board, or the individual members of an entire neighborhood.

    Serf, lets say you live in a neighborhood that utilizes one of their networks. You come home one day to find your front door smashed in and all of your worldly possessions are gone. Your guns, your gold filled safe, heck - even your baseball card collection. If the Talon system provided the police with evidence to catch the bad guys and return your possessions, would that be a good thing? Or would you stand on principle and protest the use of the information and just write off the damage and theft?

    It would be hard to name anything that can't be misused and this system is no exception. I just got back from running errands and am probably on several videos taken from the bank and stores I visited. On top of that, I used a credit card so my purchases can be tracked. Didn't have my cell phone, but did drive my OnStar equipped vehicle so if anyone was interested I could be tracked. I am currently on a website that is probably monitored by several govt agencies and now you want me to panic about a system that can read my license plate. Sorry, I just can't work up enough enthusiasm to care about Talon. Bob

    There is no expectation of privacy in a public setting, that is settled law. That is why a citizen or police can use cameras anywhere in public even if the property has no cameras allowed signs inside the property. If you are on public land you can video anything you can see. Freedom is a double edged sword. If you do not want to be videoed stay in your house, otherwise you may be on a camera. Act accordingly and it will never be an issue, act like a jerk and it may bite you.

    That used to be cheaper than the ammo but it may be the other way around right now.

    When you get forced socialism with taxation in a cashless society then you will understand that there is a perfect trap laid for all of us. Thanks to science & technology of the all seeing eye.
