- Concrete Examples
American police are on the cusp of round-the-clock citizen surveillance, journalist Jon Fasman warns. Many police agencies and departments use license plate readers. Some rely on facial recognition technology or drone surveillance. Fasman analyzes this trend against the backdrop of the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable searches. He makes a compelling case that policing’s technology far outpaces society’s ability to decide how to oversee this new power.
