    I think this is a good program; however, I’m not sure about the future possible consequences it could bring. It canbe seen as an abuse of power for part of the government to invade the privacy of the regular citizen. There is a fine line between what is reasonable and what is unreasonable regarding this collection of information. Hopefully the program is well managed and the information collected won’t be used in any other way than fighting crime.
