Our duopoly of political parties are two sides to the same coin.
I don't think pulling people over for research is a reasonable use of police power. Actual enforcement, maybe, but not for research.
It started with 'sobriety checkpoints' and 'Are you a citizen' roadblocks in the Constitition Free Zone within 100 miles of our borders. We used to mock the USSR over 'papers please' and now we do it ourselves. This is not going to end well.
The police work around our rights using intimidation, which is a form of terrorism. It doesn't help it's legal for them to lie to us, but illegal for us to lie to them.

Considering the average kid is more comfortable using new technology, this isn't a bad idea.
Was this an old line, formerly state owned telephone company killing a service that competed with its main business, or just an unsuccessful acquisition being put down?
