One of the problems with being a criminal today
Is that the forensics and technology that law enforcement uses
Are more sophisticated than most people realize.
I spoke with a cop at work and he told me
He had a license plate reader built into his vehicle that
Could read hundreds of license plates per minute
And that he knew
Everywhere I had been the last three days.
I took him for telling the truth about the matter.
He seemed like a decent enough guy
But it still felt creepy that he knew that.
After that I
Never looked at technology
The same way.
It seemed as if all this new
Technology and surveillance equipment
Built into our phones and elsewhere
Is the best babysitter and tattle-tale
The world ever devised.
No wonder there haven’t been
As many serial killers in the news lately.
The cops know everything about you.
So if your considering being a career criminal
Don’t think you can “get away with it”.
Law enforcement is watching us
More closely than we realize.
