Philadelphia police spying on its citizens using a spy truck disguised as a Google Street View car

Seems like authorities in United States believe in using any means to achieve their target. According to a report on Vice, Philadelphia police department was using a spy-truck disguised as a Google Street View care to spy on citizens of Philadelphia.

The innocuous looking but seemingly out of place Google Street view car aroused suspicions of Matt Blaze.
Blaze, a University of Pennsylvania computer and information science professor, discovered a SUV “tucked away in the shadows of the Philadelphia Convention Center’s tunnel” that was labeled as a Google Maps Street View car.
Blaze noticed that it had two high-powered license plate reader cameras mounted on top, meaning it had to belong to a government agency. He immediately tweeted the information to make others aware of the dubious ways the authorities use to spy on its citizens.
