Are You Sure?

Are you SURE that you want E911 to know the location of your cell phone?

By Janet Boston

According to the ACLU citizens should not allow their cell phones to be tracked by location.

In checking different locations in the U.S., Cape Girardeau, MO is not the only place in the US that does not have this phone location capability.

I think with cameras on stop lights, the Patriot Act, the NSA spying through telephones, appliances, and computers on US citizens, and the many over reaching Constitutional transgressions of our President/Congress/Homeland Security government agencies on citizens’ rights that no citizen should pay to give the opportunity to our local police (possibly Homeland Security) to have our private whereabouts at their finger tips.  This program is being sold as an emergency protection/security program and it is not. So let’s be honest.

Congress is considering the Geolocation Privacy and Surveillance Act, a bill supported by the National ACLU requiring police to get a warrant to obtain personal location information. The bill protects both historical and real-time location data, and requires customers’ consent for telecommunications companies to collect location data.

I am not on board on this program.  In fact, I believe every Senator and Representative should be doing away with the Patriot ACT and reigning in the NSA and Homeland Security. We need to get back to supporting our Founding Documents and quit convincing people to consider relinquishing their freedoms by selling them some Security/Safety baloney.

I do not approve one cent to be charged to my cell phone bill for this nonsense.  I will make sure I know where I am If I need 911.  The police nor the government does not need this information unless they get a warrant.
