First let me say I did do a search on this topic and the only thread I found was from way back in '06, and there wasn't much to it. Hence the new
I was perusing various headlines and saw this article. Looked at where it was from and it was the Daily Mail, so obviously I decided to see who else
had anything on it. Found the attached link.
These surveillance systems were used overseas to spot incoming ground attacks as they developed as well as spot IEDs being planted. It sounds like the
system either already is in use or was in use in Dayton, Ohio, with plans to make it permanent. Dayton (and the company) say it helped reduce crime
and contributed to crime resolution.
The company wants to expand to other U.S. cities now (they're a business so...yea), and is promising that they've already come up with guidelines and
policies. One example is they limit any person to "one pixel" and use the system to track them to a car, then identify the car. The problem with that
is immediately obvious to me: it's an easy argument to say "that wasn't me driving the car." Add to that the FISA court repeatedly giving the Feds
carte blanche when if comes to surveillance and I can easily see these "policies" getting rewritten in a hurry.
Anyway, thought it was interesting. Enjoy.
