In some cities like Minneapolis, though, officials are starting to turn to a familiar tool to investigate networks of protestors. The tool is contact-tracing, and it’s a familiar tool in that people have been hearing about it frequently in recent weeks as an important component of a comprehensive coronavirus pandemic response. According to Minnesota Public Safety Commissioner John Harringon, officials there have been using what they describe, without going into much detail, as contact-tracing in order to build out a picture of protestor affiliations — a process that officials in the state say has led them to conclude that much of the protest activity there is being fueled by people from outside coming in.





. . . the non-protest aspect to this is the fact that it speaks to privacy concerns around contact-tracing in general, since using this tool to fight the coronavirus pandemic is by definition an invasion of privacy. Contact tracers need to know personal details about you, such as who you’ve been around and where you’ve gone over a not-insignificant period of time. And now, it’s a tool that’s apparently being used to build a completely different, non-coronavirus-related informational picture of Americans.

The morons looting, rioting are now creating the perfect opportunity for Big Brother to move in permanently.

All for your safety, of course.

It's not just for Covid, they now have to know where you are and what you're doing if you're protesting.

Folks, government is cheering on the protests and riots because it gives them the perfect opportunity to erode our rights to privacy.

Well done, bastards. You idiots. Morons. You had to go and burn and loot. You couldn't peacefully march or protest or whatever. You had to go and screw things up for the rest of us.

Idiots.

Well done.

I firmly believe we need a strong response to these domestic terrorists; police, national guard, etc.

One of the reasons for this is that if we allow these terrorists to burn down our cities it will rightfully outrage people, and then they will wrongfully be willing to accept massive infringements on their rights to deal with this because the government tells us nothing else works.

Just like anti gun laws: the government basically refuses to prosecute people trying to illegally buy guns, then they can point to gun violence as an excuse to take away law abiding citizens guns.

This is disgusting.

Do you think that the powers that be might have had a hand in fostering the violence ala agents provocateurs? The ultimate agenda is "control" after all. Divide and conquer...if ats is an example, it works.

Minnesota officials say they’re using contact tracing to better understand who the protestors are and where they’re coming from.

The only thing they really need to do is geolocate their phones for this.

Ya know them phones they were using social media to target snip with.

If by powers that be a political party hell bent on removing a sitting president.

The answer is a resounding yes.

Hmm.. I didnt like the idea at all before, and I still dont but now that they are marketing it in a way where Ill buy it, Im all for it!

Hooray for contact tracing!

Same people pushing contact tracing are the ones that have been priming "riot responses" in the public for years now.

Contact tracing is for our own good. It's not that intrusive. It's only temporary. It's okay to give up some freedom for safety. I'm not doing anything wrong so I don't have to worry.

Seriously? I didn't imagine you (of all people) to be the kid saying "don't hit the booze, or daddy gets his belt!"
The problem is and was daddy-gov tried to sell the belt-tracing as good for you, don't you think?
Maybe someone needs a spanking to put things straight in the head again?
Do you? Would be happy to help...

I really don't care what method they use to track the vandals (the right term according Merriam-Webster "one who willfully or ignorantly destroys, damages, or defaces property belonging to another or to the public"). www.merriam-webster.com...

We should be called "protestors", not them. We are protesting against these idiot vandals.

By the way, it's been told that the second wave will be about "civil unrest" and not the virus. So now we have business like Target, closing because this mess.

So what's your story here lately? That the president is an impotent stooch? Or that republicans are so incompetent they can't rule even if they're in power?

Do you honestly believe that they'll stop using this tracking once the riots are gone?

No but I'm willing to bet some more dummies will riot everytime the tracker needs an upgrade.


Spontaneously, of course.

No.

Just like them just voting to checking internet history without FISA warrants.

That happened a few weeks ago.

Then rioting came.

Which has false flag written all over it.

But hitting stuff with bricks gets you free stuff.

Well done, bastards. You idiots. Morons.


I hope you're including the ones who hired them...


You had to go and burn and loot.


...and paid them to do exactly that.


You couldn't peacefully march or protest or whatever.


Nope. They were paid to do exactly the opposite.


You had to go and screw things up for the rest of us.


Yup. Now some folks are begging and cheering the police state.
