Unfortunately this was the next logical step. First the FBI compiled a "test database" of people's driver's license's in South Carolina and Florida back around 1999.

We make a concession every time we leave a neighborhood that is quickly deteriorating in cleanliness, value, and safety instead of calling the proper...

Re: Does anyone have problems with this?

I agree, this is very scary indeed. As a private entity, there are certainly questions of accountability that arise (stockholders vs citizens, openess of practices and procedures vs. private information and trade secrets, etc.) What about training, what about law enforcement officers representing the communities which they serve? As deputized citizens, must they follow procedures with respect to searches (warrants)? Does Miranda hold for these guys?

Easily. They are already required by law to check ID for age. So the ID has something on it which says that this person is not eligible to buy alcohol - heck a scarlet letter or something. Precisely. Someone who has committed a number of DUI's does not deserve the privilege to drive and further endanger others. In the same way that sexual predators are required to "check in" with the local police any time they move - this would be a similar penalty to try to prevent a needless death or...
