Could cost a billion dollars—or two. Cameras, networking the cameras, huge database, maybe 100 million records

None of the ramshackle computers the govt has would do the job nor is the MTM capable of streaming images from a sports stadium or airport.

This is a huge setback of our civil liberties. In the ultimate end it will be just a way to racially profile I bet!
Abbott & Co are going to cause the mother and father of all recessions—be prepared!
