Just wait until they get all of our personal information in the new insurance files. How safe do you think that information will be?

Remember-the party in power always feel they have impunity. They are like the old phone company-we don't have to.

What could they possibly have against her? I don't watch 5 but I don't think they usually kick up a ruckus. Their news can be very bland.

The payouts from the lawsuits for looking at drivers licenses are similar to lottery winnings. It appears like some folks are really hitting the jackpot at our expense.

Sadly, if Ms. Miles' suit is successful it's the taxpayers who will end up footing the bill. The only way to put an end to all this unnecessary and illegal snooping is to make the responsible government employees personally liable. Making them pay any fines or penalties resulting from their own unlawful behavior would put the brakes on this growing, disturbing trend.

There was an article in the Star and Tribune just a week or 2 ago about widespread corruption within the Minneapolis Police Department years ago... and not one person had been disciplined. The mafia has similar rules... rat on your buddy and you're history. Tough way to run a respectable police force when there is never any consequences for those who we are supposed to trust.

Why are these cops driving past her house? What are they "monitoring"? This is creepy.

Not to condone such invasions of privacy in any way, but I suspect the vast majority are committed not out of any form of malice, but because of boredom, curiosity and the simple fact that the perpetrators have access.

This doesn't reflect very well on the professionalism of the law enforcement in this state.

Privacy? Sadly I don't think my young kids will ever know what that was.....
