Navy database tracks civilians' parking tickets, fender-benders

schwit1 (797399) writes "A parking ticket, traffic citation or involvement in a minor fender-bender are enough to get a person's name and other personal information logged into a massive, obscure federal database run by the U.S. military.

The Law Enforcement Information Exchange, or LinX, has already amassed 506.3 million law enforcement records ranging from criminal histories and arrest reports to field information cards filled out by cops on the beat even when no crime has occurred."

Who gave them the missions (plural). (1)

This is the interesting part:
"LinX was created in 2003 and put under NCIS, which has counterterrorism and intelligence-gathering missions in addition to responsibility for criminal investigations. LinX was originally supposed to help NCIS protect naval bases from terrorism."

Who gave them this mission?
Yes I am a fan of Mark Harmon and even more so Cote de Pablo
and the entanglement of bringing in Mossad to the fiction.
