Deconstructing a matrix

From TalkLeft we hear that
Utah has joined the growing list of states that are dropping out of the Multistate Antiterrorism Information Exchange, or MATRIX. ...

Gov. Olene Walker recognized that law enforcement agencies have a legitimate need to share information, but not at the expense of equally legitimate interests in protecting privacy.
Quoting the Salt Lake Tribune, TalkLeft adds
Walker's announcement comes a day after a panel that she appointed to review the MATRIX recommended steering clear of the pilot crime-fighting network until "adequate oversight" is established to assure that the billions of public and private records it collects on citizens aren't misused.
Of the 13 states that were originally part of MATRIX, only five remain; the others dropped out over privacy and civil liberties concerns.
