Maybe... In America, you are (supposed to be) innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
Authorities breaking the law to prosecute law breakers... It's a pretty unsettling idea.
Who would police the police? The federal government? At this point in time, it seems they are in the pockets of major corporations.

That device in no way resembles a beautiful 4-band electric bass. I am disappoint.

Sure, the government gets all pissy and will scrutinize companies like Google for using location data to deliver more specific ads, but it's quite all right for them to use this super Big Brother device.

That thing is ugly. Steve Jobs would have made a much more elegant design.
