Oh yes... if it's one type of human I can trust to always do the right thing it is most certainly an officer of the law.

That's up to the cops if they want to do that.

that's how it started here in london. now there are all sorts of monitoring devices which automatically issue tickets. parking tickets, tickets for riding in bus lanes, failing to pay congestion charges. you name it. once you allows orwell's creatures in the door, it ain't long before they devour every aspect of freedom you once took for granted

It's only a matter of time. We already have traffic light cameras that catch people running red lights and the owner is issued a ticket. This is the same thing.
