Wow...lossen thos e tinfoil hats fellas! Honestly - it isn't going to happen. Even if it does, it will be used in limited scope - it is just wasted manpower. Don't talk to me about software, bla bla bla. It still needs manual application and use. And that isn't going to happen.

What are some if any applications anyway?

The tinfoil hat thing gets thrown around to discredit an opposing view point and I don't feel its justified in this case. We're literally discussing something with a large potential for widespread abuse across a range of different public services, of course it should be taken seriously.

If the public sector funds are so hard to come by and the applications so limited then sensible regulation and oversight shouldn't be a problem, right? I'm all for advancements and keeping up with the times but I don't like the idea of law enforcement being to deploy these without strict oversight and some legal precedence in their application. That's how the rest of the system is, it just makes sense.
