Governments collect insane amounts of data about ordinary
people, and officials get caught red-handed again and again using
governmental surveillance networks to stalk private relations. It’s been
the NSA, it’s been the FBI, and now it’s the police abusing collected
data. The U.S. government has shown it can’t even protect its own
dirtiest laundry, so what makes anyone think any government is willing
and capable of protecting the data of a random citizen?
