The imprisonment of law enforcement technology
As the pendulum of public support for law enforcement swings back toward the vilification side, the criticism of technological tools intensifies commensurately. Society as a whole wants the police to apprehend criminals (even more so when they are personally victimized), yet there is an ongoing reticence to embrace the technology that enables cops to do the job more safely and efficiently. This merry-go-round of technology support is daunting and frustrating, to say the least. The ability of law enforcement to fight crimes is constantly imprisoned by activists and privacy zealots.
