7. Don't travel to london, you just described how they do business
as to choice, I know people who have worked in Law Enforcement, and cops run plates all the time... for example at a stop light

As to the computer doing it on its own... good reasons and bad reasons for that..

I can see both actually

On the plus side it frees the cop, and dispatch...

On the down side yes, this will end up in the USSC sooner or later... for obvious amendment reasons..

I suspect the court, in its current incarnation, will allow it

Not saying whether I agree or not, just stating a fact
