Postal Service Photographing Your Mail & Giving That Information To The Government

Posted by Dave Jolly

 

Many Americans have been outraged to learn that the National Security Agency has been spying on their phone calls, email and internet use.  Eric Snowden literally sacrificed his life, as he knew it, to let Americans know the extent of the government spying.  His information was proven correct when a family found themselves under government scrutiny because the father Googled 'backpack' and the mother later Googled ‘pressure cooker.’

 

A lot of people have opted to not use the internet and email to do things like pay bills and shop because of the government spying and threat of hackers stealing their information.  Except for the rare postal worker who hoards 30,000 pieces of mail   :wacko: in their garage, most people feel the mail is much safer than the internet and from the prying eyes of the NSA or other government agencies.

 

That sense of security with using the Postal Service may be nothing than a false sense of security.  In processing your mail, the Post Office photographs the front of every piece of mail they handle.  Supposedly, the photographing is used in the sorting process to help ensure accurate delivery. 

Their software uses the photo to generate the barcode you see on most of your mail.  The barcode is then used by other equipment to sort your mail and helping it get to the right carrier to bring to your mailbox.

 

However, the photographs are kept for a week to up to a month and according to Postmaster General Patrick Donahue, the photographs are also made available to government agencies upon request.

 

With all of the articles I’ve written against Barack Obama, the White House and the Democrats, I’m certain that I’ve been flagged to be watched.  I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that the government is monitoring my emails, phone calls and internet use along with everything I write and post.  Now, they may even be looking at photographs of all the mail I receive in my mailbox every day.    (PROBABLY ME, TOO, FRIEND)

 

So what is a safe way to communicate with others or carry out your personal business?  It seems the only safe way would be to do it face-to-face.  In many cases, that is not physically possible because of distances.  But keep in mind if you live in some of the larger cities like Oakland that they are spying on the residents with cameras, license plate capturing equipment and microphones mounted throughout the city.  Perhaps face-to-face isn’t safe from government spying either. 

 

It seems that there is no aspect of our life that is safe from government prying and spying.

Good read indeed.

I don't have a doubt they keep picture related records with suspicious objects in the package(s) labeled with where it came from along with it's destination. I do however doubt they'd just consistently dump the information to the government unless it was indeed requested which the chances of that happening are slim to none if there was no illegal activity involved. If illegal activity was involved, I can see them potentially seizing the package(s) and providing it accordingly however they can't truly prove the buyer or where it was being sent to was accurate therefore most likely resulting once again in nothing really happening besides a seized package by customs officers. 

Truth is you don't have any privacy in the US. Since you're a citizen, you have legal rights however the government can obtain any bit of information about you at any given time without permission seeing everything you've already done that's been registered is open to the government's database. 

Regarding the postal issue, doubtful that they rack up tons of info on everybody just to send to the government. Granted, the government does however do particular operations to seize a mass amount of illegal goods at random, sometimes legitimate goods are seized during these aswell which is kinda messed up.

On another note, I have no doubt postal workers that sort packages during and after scanning them take a look to see what's inside using technology to prevent illegal activity. So yes, in a sense there's no real privacy there but it's not technically government related. As stated before there are government related aspects, but nothing directly linked to leaking such information to the government without a reason. If you purchased a blender the government really wouldn't care for that information if you think about it.

If you're suspected of something then yes, I'm sure the information will be sent to the government for review based on previous knowledge. It's very rare to see such a thing though so I wouldn't worry about it. Similar to the NSA, they aren't going to spy on you or anything like that seeing all they really have to do is check all your stuff to see what you're doing instead of direct interception (example: wiring into your phone calls) seeing all the information stored at the NSA is "unlocked" meaning they have full access over absolutely anything that anyone owns in the US and can look into anything at any given moment if you're suspected of something. It's all about security though, prevented more harm than you think.

I don't fully agree with all of their terms, however you don't see people that download music or movies illegally get in trouble. There's very rare cases where one person gets caught and it's used as a scare tactic for other people. There's more heavier things going on in the world for them to truly care about people illegally downloading programs, movies, music, and so forth for them to actually convict you of the crime. If that was the case half the population would be in jail causing less income in the US if there's less workers meaning less tax income which also goes to the prisons where they "keep" the half of the population which did such things.

All in all, I'm happy and frustrated at the NSA and other government organizations that invade our privacy. Having a sense of mind that the actual bad guys can get caught very easily now days puts a lot of people at ease, but on the flip side of the coin knowing another human being can look at all of your private stuff isn't comforting at all. So it's a love/hate type of thing. There's of course way more to it but I've gone on about this a bit too much.

Funny cause when I receive a letter from a vendor that's sent USPS, it hasn't been showing in my regular email photos with the daily Incoming mail. It shows up when I get a tracking number as coming to me, but isn't a part of my general emails tHat shows my daily regular mail. Hope that makes sense ... Lol.
