Is it all over, but the crying?
Police will soon have the ability to scan cars to identify all occupants, seeking "targets of interest". Do you want police to be able to put you on surveillance 24/7 and know absolutely everything you do say and be able to follow you where ever you go? I didn't want teen and adult prostitutes near my property, so the police retaliated. [more] If you can be falsely arrested and held as a political prisoner for not wanting prostitutes around your home and kids, is anyone safe?

Police often are free to scan the internet, even your personal computer, take secret photos/videos, look up information on you, and even covertly target rivals for their targets for sex and romance.
The "Watchers" can watch for you watching them. Then there is retaliation, false arrest, and you are held without a hearing as a political prisoner.
The "unwanted" by the government elite probably won't end up like this, it will be much more organized, and there won't be any video or still evidence.
This a Humvee fitted with a microwave dish, it can mildly "fry" those at protests for crowd control, or it can be set on "high" and those corralled in numbers can all be simultaneously fried to a crisp. [more]
I know first hand what it is to be followed around by police for political reasons, not anything to do with committing any crimes.
If you go to elected officials and want to talk about the police budget, accountability, Civilian Oversight of Police and the Courts, or about forcing the courts and police to act legally, Constitutionally, and in the best interest of the public, you too, can be put on a secret police "Enemies List" be followed around, maliciously investigated, threatened, falsely arrested, and held in jail as a political prisoner.

Post 9/11 Hysteria Crazed DMV Officials In Arizona, Michigan, Vermont, And Washington Team With Feds To Track Anyone With A Drivers License With RFID Chips In Licenses - Even When They Aren’t DrivingPublished in ARIZONA, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, MICHIGAN, VERMONT, WASHINGTON
US - Electronic monitoring of motorists will soon expand dramatically as states including Arizona, Michigan, Vermont and Washington begin to use radio frequency identification (RFID) chips in drivers’ licenses. These electronic chips broadcast the identity of any card holder to any chip-reading sensor within a minimum of thirty feet.

US - Electronic monitoring of motorists will soon expand dramatically as states including Arizona, Michigan, Vermont and Washington begin to use radio frequency identification (RFID) chips in drivers’ licenses. These electronic chips broadcast the identity of any card holder to any chip-reading sensor within a minimum of thirty feet. The US Department of Homeland Security is promoting the tracking projects as part of its Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative.
“Multiple cards can be read at a distance and simultaneously with vicinity RFID technology, allowing an entire car full of people to be processed at once,” a DHS fact sheet on the Passport Card technology explained.
So-called enhanced drivers’ licenses are designed to meet the DHS travel document requirements. Enhanced card holders will be allowed to travel across the border without a passport when new regulations take effect in January 2009. The enhanced licenses electronically store the motorist’s name, date of birth, height, weight and identity number on the card. RFID readers use the identity number to access additional private information from a department of motor vehicles database.
Although the licenses will initially be offered on a voluntary basis, the National Motorists Association suggests that it will not take long for the program to become mandatory.
“The federal government just incentivizes their proposal so that each state, and by extension its citizens, feel like they have no choice but to go along with their program,” the NMA stated today.
The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) warns that the move is another step toward a national identity card.
“DHS, Arizona, Vermont and Washington are creating these new ID cards in order to change the state driver’s license in to a federal border security identification document,” the EPIC website explained. “The license is pulled away from its original intent — to ensure driving competence — and used as a multi-use federal identification document that could easily be transformed into a national identity card.”
Not every state is sold on the idea. The California State Senate voted in April to ban RFID drivers’ licenses. The bill passed an Assembly committee by a 9-5 vote in July.
