There are serious violations of our fourth amendments rights conducted by local, state, federal agencies daily. Events concerning questionable activity by the Justice Department is background there is a problem. Surveillance abuse by members of law enforcement, FBI obtaining phone records on ordinary citizens is evidence. “Operation Fast and Ferious,” were members of our government sold high powered weapons to gangsters from another country in which a Special Agent with U.S. Border Patrol was killed sometime later. Violation of some of our labor and civil rights laws is additional evidence. All had elements of miss used technology.
In real-time these unjust acts, Civil and criminal, are not being address or we can say no one is being held accountable. Taking a moral stand, employing the host of the greater community may stop some of these violation, social attacks. Families who are low economic level are fighting to conduct basic daily living. Most do not understand how technology affects them. All the rest of our population,those who have college degrees, advance degrees, entrepreneurs, professionals labor, skilled labor, public safety, all the rest are so busy trying to keep up a structured life style there is no time to reflex, “what the hell is going on”? The need for all Americans to take a good look at how technology has affected their life, is a must.

Electronic medical records are often compromised, can endanger continued care. “What we have is a great product being use badly.” There are situation individuals end up dead from being victims.
