Why we care about database

Federal Agent Indicted for Cyber-Stalking (from eWeek.com)

It's stories like this that explain why ethical CS types are concerned about the proliferation of databases within the government.  Even though the government gives assurances that such database will only be used for "the right reasons", the mere existence of that large collection of information in one location creates temptations for those with access.  And since you can never guarantee that everyone with access to that information will always act ethically ... you end up with the potential for problems like these.
