COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – Some evacuees from the Waldo Canyon Fire are returning home to find they were burglarized. One couple’s car was stolen right out of their garage. Thieves also took jewelry and computers… via CBS Denver.
As seen recently on the CBS Evening News, technology now exists, and is being used to read the license plates of EVERY vehicle that passes by a checkpoint, up to 1,800 plates per minute even vehicles traveling faster than 100 mph. The plates are instantly cross-referenced on a local computer and/or remote database center, and are checked for “the names of vehicle owners against registration records, fugitive warrants, and criminal data bases — giving police critical information,” sounding alarms when possible violators are spotted… via LModern Survival Blog.
Even the MSM whores are having a tough time not reporting on this now, but the minimizing contortions they take in doing so are worth watching, i.e.
Documents obtained by CBS News show that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) discussed using their covert operation “Fast and Furious” to argue for controversial new rules about gun sales.
In Fast and Furious, ATF secretly encouraged gun dealers to sell to suspected traffickers for Mexican drug cartels to go after the “big fish.” But ATF whistleblowers told CBS News and Congress it was a dangerous practice called “gunwalking,” and it put thousands of weapons on the street. Many were used in violent crimes in Mexico. Two were found at the murder scene of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.
ATF officials didn’t intend to publicly disclose their own role in letting Mexican cartels obtain the weapons, but emails show they discussed using the sales, including sales encouraged by ATF, to justify a new gun regulation called “Demand Letter 3”. That would require some U.S. gun shops to report the sale of multiple rifles or “long guns.” Demand Letter 3 was so named because it would be the third ATF program demanding gun dealers report tracing information. via CBS News Investigates – CBS News.
