Here's reality:
I'm not against photo radar because a woman might get beaten up based on the privacy violation from a photo radar camera; I'm against it because a good friend of mine did bet beaten up by her abusive husband when he got the photo of her driving in her car with another man (and I'm that man). I'm against photo radar because that kind of think will happen again.

There's nothing hypothetical at all about this situation. I'm the one who drove her to the emergency room to have her apalling wounds treated. If the State of Colorado had had enough respect for her privacy to not use photo radar, that would never have happened.

This is only one of many very good reasons I'm against photo radar, and it has nothing to do with trying to guarantee that everything in life is safe. I don't want NFL Football turned into flag football so there won't be any injuries. I don't think bowling balls should have warning labels telling you not to drop them on your foot. I don't think you should never let a kid ride a bike because he might get hurt. What I do think is that the government should respect the privacy of its citizens. The government has no right to record where I travel and with whom as a public record without my permission. The government has no right to tell me whether or not I should own a gun. The government has no right to tell me what consenting adult I should sleep with in the privacy of my home. These are classic conservative values, but you're not a conservative. You're a fascist.
