Navy database tracks civilians' parking tickets, fender-benders, raising fears of domestic spying
Foxnews ^

Posted on 03/22/2014 11:02:31 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA

A parking ticket, traffic citation or involvement in a minor fender-bender are enough to get a person's name and other personal information logged into a massive, obscure federal database run by the U.S. military.

The Law Enforcement Information Exchange, or LinX, has already amassed 506.3 million law enforcement records ranging from criminal histories and arrest reports to field information cards filled out by cops on the beat even when no crime has occurred.

Navy database tracks civilians’ parking tickets, fender-benders, etc., ...........

Meanwhile, they cannot track a Boeing 777.

~~~The Navy needs this why?~~~

In case you get into a fender-bender with a frigate in your Yugo and NCIS Port Charles missed your license plate.

Duh.

Yeah, this really secures our territorial waters and ensures our access to the seas.

I found this alternate view posted on another site. I don’t think I’m gullible, but this makes the most sense to me. However, there’s been so many betrayals by our government, everything they do becomes suspect.

“The U.S. Navy is not tracking your parking tickets. The purpose of this program didn’t even have anything to do with 9/11. It arose out of the too many incidents of construction contractors bringing individuals on to Navy bases with no drivers licenses, revoked licenses, (or were illegal aliens) who then got into accidents and the contractor employer fending off lawsuits using the legal ploy of ‘the Navy let them on the base’, which technically is accurate because that contractor isn’t allowed to administer base security

So, people would then sue the Navy for damages and win. This program was designed to allow the gate and access personnel to quickly check individual contractor workers driving work vehicles in, or operating heavy equipment on base.

That’s the only reason for this program.”

I've got a great idea.

Why don't we microchip EVERYBODY, so that even if terrorists try to turn off airplane tracking systems, the people in the planes can still be tracked.
The terrorists themselves, would always be tracked.

It would be good for everybody.

Big deal. Why should we? Is it our plane. I am sick of the entire thing. I hope we never find out what happened. Your stupid crack pisses me off. Typical liberal crap. You go find it if you think you can do better.

On the police radio in Tulsa, I always hear them “clearing” someone on the NCIC database, when they do traffic stops.

Maybe it's time everyone files a FOI request to know what is in the database about them, that would put a hitch in their giddy up.

See? It’s all logical.

You know, like our gov’t.

Figure out the most sane, responsible, public-service thing to do.

And then do the opposite.

IOW, the Navy wasn't securing it's own property but we're to sleep well knowing they're johnny on the spot securing the nation. Got'cha.

No need to be a dipsheet.

I was just poking fun that they were tracking parking tickets and fender-benders. Seems planes at sea would show up on their radar before parking tickets. Sorry that escapes your grasp.

The problem with you is that you’re an idiot. You would have a very difficult time finding anyone that knows me calling me a liberal.

Personally, I hope they find it. Not for me but for the families involved.

Lighten up!

No doubt similar arguments will be made (as you suggested).

Just these 3 little sixes on your forehead or right hand and you’ll be able to buy. And sell.

They keep track of the tickets and accidents so that if a person gets 12 points they are banned from the base for a year and it is World wide. I love the idea. I was a traffic court judge and these idiots need to lose their privileges. I made sure quite a few did.

Just add LinX, The Law Enforcement Information Exchange, to the pile of other government surveillance:

NarusInsight (previously CARNIVORE) that the FBI uses to directly monitor email and electronic communications.

CALEA, the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act
which creates back doors in communications and Internet companies, allowing federal agencies to monitor all telephone, broadband internet, and VoIP traffic in real-time. Used mostly by the FBI and Secret Service.

ADVISE (Analysis, Dissemination, Visualization, Insight, and Semantic Enhancement), a massive data mining system run by the DHS.

PRISM - NSA system. (PRISM is a government codename for a data collection effort known officially as US-984XN.)

72 (known) Homeland Security “Fusion Centers” in the US. They are used for information sharing at the federal level between agencies such as the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. military, and state- and local-level government.

“Other systems”, run by the 100+ federal police agencies, the other US major intelligence agencies (17 total), as well as those used by non-police and non-intelligence agencies in the government. There are lots of these.

Long since transcending the law of diminishing returns, most of these programs just represent the gathering and archiving of vast amounts of useless data, and the expenditure of hundreds of billions of dollars to no practical end.

If all of this was reduced by 90%, its efficiency would significantly improve, and it would again be an effective tool against our foreign enemies. As things are now, the “information overload” effect is so great, the useful data is more hidden than a piece of hay in a haystack.

Well they’ve got no business tracking my tickets and fender-benders.

Peace unto you. Have a nice weekend. I am going fishing.

I had a not my fault AUTO accident in 1989, the ONLY accident in my driving career and the Federal DOT inspector who came to look over my business address last year upon my signing my work truck into the system for the first time, knew about that 23 year old accident.

I had heard, a couple of years ago, (whether accurate or not???) that the "powers" that be, wanted everyone to be chipped by 2017.

Its occurrences like this, that they'll use to pave their way.

It’s hard to know exactly when. Of course the big one may not actually occur until The Abomination that Causes desolation. In Revelation 13, it is the False Prophet that causes the people of the Earth to take the Mark of the Beast or die, and he seems to have been revealed to the world at that point.

Micro-chipping humans will pave the way; no doubt about it.

Star Traveler:" On the police radio in Tulsa, I always hear them “clearing” someone on the NCIC database, when they do traffic stops."

Just another violation of "Posse Commitas" through OverReach .
It is still surveillance, since they , the military maintain the data bank , regarless of the justification.
