The story, “POLICE COULD GET YOUR LOCATION DATA WITHOUT A WARRANT. THAT HAS TO END” and Fahrenheit 451 are both involved with living in constant surveillance. In the article, the author Charles Blain says, “The absence of consistent protections for citizens opens up the opportunity for rampant abuse by law enforcement.” In the book it writes, “ This network is proud to have the opportunity to follow the hound by camera helicopter as it starts on its way to the target.”(pg.127) In both scenarios the law enforcement is taking advantage of the people by tracking them. If one does not have the permission by the person they are attempting to track, and tracts them anyways, that is an unjust progression. People need the freedom to make decisions on their own. If a crime has not been committed they should not be punished. If one believes in “ innocent until proven guilty” then one should believe that people need the freedom to make decisions on their own. If a crime has not been committed they should not be punished. If one believes in “proven innocent until proven guilty“ then you should believe in freedom of privacy. The safety of the people should be every country’s number one problem, “Regardless of how far technological advancements go, Americans' civil rights should always be protected.” As long as law-enforcement is using their powers for justified reasons, then they should be OK with being restricted on not being able to track everyone’s locations constantly. Being constantly tract can cause paranoia, and they can cause the subject that’s being tracked to do wild things, “the pains were spikes driven in the kneecap and then only daring needles and then only common ordinary safety pins,... it was like someone blowing a spray of scalding water on that leg.”(pg.117) People will put themselves through awful situations to escape trying to be controlled. A group of people can only control others for so long until there is backlash. Society cannot be contained and in perfect order, because this is not a perfect world. Not everything is able to be controlled. Mistakes need to happen in order for anything to grow stronger. Trying to restrain people to what only a few people think is the right way of living, will cause more mistakes than people just living how they like. If tracking someone is used in the right context then it can be very beneficial for many people, but overall everyone has a right to privacy and that line can be crossed very easily. Being constantly under surveillance can cause dystopia, when a utopia was trying to be achieved.
