Every Step You Take, They’ll Be Watching You

Boston.com, via the Associated Press:

Chances are, your local or state police departments have photographs of your car in their files, noting where you were driving on a particular day, even if you never did anything wrong.

The local news here in California has been covering these license-plate scanning systems for a while now, but it seems the phenomenon is becoming more widespread.

I really don’t understand why the public at large seems more or less at ease with the idea that police are recording everything we do while arming themselves to the teeth. How is that not something we should care about? Are we all really that lobotomized?
