First time accepted submitter Trachman writes in with news about a monitoring program designed to help stop future leaks of government documents. "U.S. intelligence officials are planning a sweeping system of electronic monitoring that would tap into government, financial and other databases to scan the behavior of many of the 5 million federal employees with secret clearances, current and former officials told The Associated Press. The system is intended to identify rogue agents, corrupt officials and leakers, and draws on a Defense Department model under development for more than a decade, according to officials and documents reviewed by the AP."

'Relative' is the key. There is no fixed background to say 'This is going absolutely this fast', any observation point in any kind of motion is as viable as any other. It just falls out of a little bit of simple vector maths - so no, your question is not answerable, as it's malformed.

I hope you're ready to get the shit kicked out of you, because that's inevitably what's going to happen. I can't really see how it isn't going to happen.

I suspect it'll happen so frequently, that the police in any state won't even bother to charge anyone doing so with a crime after a short while.

Good luck!
