"almost 800 cops from a dozen agencies driving 90 to 130 mph on our highways" - in a state where speeding cops have caused at least 320 crashes and 19 deaths since 2004

I bet a Google search would find very few of those happened on limited access highways.

And if you're going less than 90 MPH, for God sakes stay in the right hand lane.

But these asshole will write you a ticket for going 80.  That's the problem.

'All they needed to do then was measure those distances, divide the distances by the time taken to drive that length of road, and come up with an average speed' Hey, wow.  I passed 6th grade math too.

Law enforcement officials, it seems, have pretty easy and routine access to Google's search-history database...

Well, since I recently got my tourist visa (took half a month of waiting), I'm guessing the US is not interested in my shenanigans.

I remember reading about a family who Googled "how to kill an old person" before attempting to beat their grandfather to death.

/they also Googled "if you hit someone across the back of the head with a brick will they die?"

Hold on. This comb is a series of algorithms and filters. It's not a room of people parsing your personal records and finding out that you watched porn at work.

And referencing the Sun Sentinel review of cop-speeders, is irrelevant to Google. In this particular case, your argument is against Big Data, not specifically Google.

So about Big Data:

Mind you, Bing, Yahoo (powered by Bing in the US) are tracking you. Every retailer and credit card company is tracking you. Every bank is checking up on your credit score, and sending you applications to join them. Your ISP has a log of the IPs you've visited. Your phone / cellular carrier tracks the phone numbers you've dialed. The internet is full of resellers of data concerning any speeding violations or convictions, the owner of any particular address, and whether your property is in foreclosure. If you buy something from CafePress, I, as a seller via CP, have information on the buyer and their location.

Please tell me you people aren't this ignorant.

I know  a private investigator who found a person who faked his own death using similar a technique.

A FHP Trooper who I know personally told me that since they're "trained drivers", Troopers aren't dangerous at high speeds.

He told me this while piloting his 4-door Ram 1500 down I-4 in excess of 100 MPH in traffic.

Startpage, too. But, Google conveniently searches for things might interest me. For example, construction material purveyors.

TheGogmagog: Your ISP has a log of the IPs you've visited


No, we don't.  It's not worth the disk space.  With a subpoena you could get us to reveal some basic information (which customer was using a particular IP at a given time & date, for example) as long as we've got logs back that far.  To get us to actually track someone's surfing habits would require a court order, and I can't remember the last time we were asked to do such a thing.

Some good, old fashioned Privacy laws would be nice. Too bad there's no money or oil in that, and it would get in the way of making gay sex and abortions illegal.

That's a bunch of BS.  People base their decisions to change lanes and pull out into traffic thinking the other drivers are no faster than a certain speed.  A trooper blowing past this limit can ONLY be bad.  And if you do the math, unless you're driving cross country, speeding might save you 1 or 2 minutes at best going to your destination.  Not worth it.

This just in, Fourth Reich douchebags are playing chess with every single thing you say or do on the internets and you can't wait to help them along.  Using it to bust criminals?  Dandy.  The odds that that's all they'll use it for?  Slim and none and slim just caught a flight out where his height, weight, point of origin, CC numbers, account routing numbers, race, hair and eye color and last 200 searches we're all catalogued on a Glyph drive in D.C.  When the other shoe drops, I'll be the guy looking vastly unsurprised at the table near the window, sipping a whiskey and shaking his head.

The hard part for the cops is not getting distracted by all the porn searches they come across.
