Corruption in the Defense of Ownership

"Let us assume for purposes of this discussion that a private interest is secretly using public resources to surveil a political opponent. Further, that the public resources belong to a jurisdiction's law enforcement.

"A strong trend in the last decade is for cost-constrained governments to contract with private entities for surveillance equipment and the operation of such.

"Has a private and/or political interest piggybacked illegal activity on public protection? Making it illegal is moot if the activity is undetected or ignored."

"Our group of citizens contract with private entities that are above suspicion, - providing a counterweight to the misuse of tracking technology by the corrupted and/or co-opted."
