ALPR video

This is a video of a data collection device that was sent in from Bob, a Paulite in Chicago. It's scary. It is a video of an officer using the mass surveillance device to sweep parking lots and cars that he passes on the street. "ALPR" is what the police officer calls this technology. This makes the proliferation of police cameras that I've noticed at intersections throughout the US that much more intimidating. I'd never realized that computers were being used this way to make dating mining through video feeds more efficient.
