The city of Baltimore has secretly been spying on the city since supposedly 2016. Which I'm sure most of you know about. I wanted to re-hash this to
give a better in depth look of exactly how and why it's being done.
Baltimore police, using money provided by a wealthy and anonymous donor, have been surveying the city with a manned plane loaded with cameras that can
view roughly 18.5 square miles below. The plane hang high above the city where most folk aren't able to see it, taking pictures every second and then
relaying them back to the police head quarters. The company employed to carry out the mass surveillance is called Persistent Surveillance Systems.
Here is a design of how the cameras look from underneath the plane,
Persistent Surveillance Systems was founded by Ross McNutt in 2004. Ross came up with this idea when he worked for the airforce institute of
technology in efforts to help with the war in Iraq.
“The IEDs (improvised explosive device) were killing many of our troops and our commander asked that we see what we could do to help,”
“We developed an idea that would allow us to track bombers back to the place they came from so we could then address the source of the

ways that it wasn't meant to be, at first...

involved. From that point, they can follow the who ever or what ever by clicking forward through the images to the present moment and pinpoint that
My question for y'all is, where else are there programs of this nature being implemented? We are well aware of Baltimore, but this has always made me
think of the movie Eagle Eye (I think that's what it's called)
Anyhow, just wanted to throw this out there for anyone that wasn't familiar.
y'all have a good weekend now!
