It really is a wonderful tool for a police state, to make it mandatory for citizens to incriminate themselves.
Like videotaping the police being a crime; A lady just got booted off a jet for taking a picture of an abusive ticket agent; A guy is shot while in handcuffs on the ground. While there are circumstances behind each of these, they just don’t sound right, do they.
What’s tragic is I’ve been a pro-law republican my entire life - and if these events scare me, I can’t imagine how more liberal people would feel. (but I’d bet none too happy). And I don’t mean to bring blue-red politics into it, just the opposite is my point.
If this keeps up, I might have to donate to the ACLU as well as the FSF. I tend to feel like the gov., police, RIAA, etc. can do anything. Inside your house or not. That’s just not the America I was in love with growing up.
