This is America’s electronic police state in action. The jazzy new law enforcement term is “markers.” A cell phone is a marker because it can reveal where you are.
Since about 2005 a new revolution has taken place. The 5C’s are cheaper and faster than DNA.
Cars – new cars often have electronic black boxes inside of them. These track location, speed, etc. They also list ….…..the time when one was at a location.
Cell phones of course, show where you were, who you called, for how long, and when all of that occurred.
Credit cards – this show where you were and what you bought.
Computers can show what a man was reading or looking up. Maybe there is a journal on there.
CCTV – it’s not just a camera, it’s a witness. One with perfect recall.
My challenge to readers, if they are unimpressed, is to buy a pack of toilet paper anonymously. Without getting caught on camera. This is hard to do.
You cannot trust anything electronic.
There are good reasons why serial killers no longer exist in America. As the surveillance state grew, they became more rare. By 2003, they were almost extinct. The last one was caught in 2012.
DAAs of the future have to go low tech. They have act as if they live in a pre-computer world. Its gonna be hard because the system sells “convenience” for tracking.
