Ed- Afraid I just do not worry about small crap like that and the license plate tracking cameras, which we have here in Albuquerque, are cruiser mounted, not on poles. Our intersection cameras are actually designed to track traffic clogs so help can be sent if something goes wrong. We had red light cameras, but they got voted out and are no longer in use.
I am afraid seeing sinister motives behind everything is just something not on my charts. If you want to lose sleep about it, be my guest. And you are correct, the scenarios you describe are fantasies. Our city pays hundeds of thousands of dollars in settlements every year for cop screw-ups like those you describe.
I am not big on conspiracy theories and 1984 is a long way off. We have actually swung the other way with all the privacy protection laws. You would think your "personal medical information" had the combination to the lock on the gold at Ft Knox. Who cares what someone else's blood pressure or blood sugar is? As long as the social security number is not disclosed, what other useful information is there in someone's medical files?

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
