School Spy Laptops "Took Thousands Of Photos" Of Students In Homes


infowars.net

Startling new evidence has emerged in the ongoing case of the Lower Merion school district in Philadelphia accused of spying on students in their homes via school issued laptops.

The lawyer for the family of the student whose school issued computer was allegedly remotely accessed while in his home, says that thousands of images were taken, including photographs of other students in their homes, web sites they visited, and excerpts of their online chats.

The case, Blake J. Robbins v. Lower Merion School District (PDF), was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District

This has been going on for a while. If you are a a Prent and have a school issued laptop then send it back. If you own a laptop with a built in web cam(like me) then place a sticky note over it. and if u wanna go the extra mile then buy some lap top speakers and keep music or white nois(the latter is better) playing at low levels. that way no one can hear you.

This like i said is not new

Yes, yes it is. They are control freaks who are not socially fit to exist in NORMAL society. They were the ones who went crying to teacher every five seconds. This is just what some people get off to *Hint Hint*. I would recommend you send these 3 news articles and that 20/20 video to every one you know. I mean did you hear that principle? "Ya I like to take pictures of them" WTF?

If he sees them he can probably flog his log. This is probably some erection tool for total limp dicks. True?

That video is just... wow... I mean wow. How's he not scared of parents? I know a lot of parents who would literally go to his working place, break his legs and castrate him over this.

I mean really... this big brother thing is going too far. So what's it gonna be in 2030? A mounted fixed camera on your head...

The district has declined to comment on the new motion and says it is not aware of any misuse of the images taken from the laptops. The case is ongoing.


Well, they just put their foot in it by ADMITTING that images were taken from
the laptops.
Whether they were misused or not, the point is mute.
Unless they told the student that the laptop had a camera that would be capturing images of them, when they were given the laptop, which they didn't, then that in itself is an offense.
The second offense is then the taking of the images unbeknown to the student and finally the third offense is the misuse and abuse of the images.
So I count 3 different things they can be hung for legally just in that one sentence.

WOW..


Thanks for posting this. I'm really at a loss for words right now. I would never have imagined this back when I was in school.

This should be flagged by everyone and hit the top..

Is there any indication to alert someone when a screen shot is being taken? Is there a flash or something?

It seems as though.. if you will notice in the video when he takes a picture of the young lady she ducks to the side and he says that they often try to duck out of the way.

I'm just wondering here...
did the school specifically order these laptops to be modified so they could have this capability....or do all the laptops have it...
heck, maybe that little camera..cam or whatever it's called that is attached to my computer but god, I don't even know where it it, don't like the thing pointing at me....maybe it has the same ability??

maybe it's time to just get off our nice windows operating systems and well.....throw away the cams...or whatever they are called. they've probably been capturing pictures of all of us all this time without us knowing.

I just kind of find it hard to believe that a school would specifically order computers with this ability, just in case they got stolen... seems more plausible that they all have this ability...just in case they got stolen!!

one thing's for sure, if I ever do buy the laptop that I want, it won't have a built in camera!

omg!!! oh those cellphones!!

If i knew some fat greasy bearded geek was taking pictures of my daughter I would expect him to be put on the sex offenders list. This is totally outrageous, where are the parents of these kids? Surely no sane parent would allow this

It's a question of software, any computer with a camera can be used that way.

As most laptops today have a built-in camera (and some are very good), most laptops can be used that way.

If this system was only used on the computers at school I would agree with its use, but using it on computers that the kids take home is a totally different thing.

You know just as sure as you are sitting there that getting photos of young people's naked bodies was the ultimate purpose of this exercise. I hope the parents, and their lawyers, sue the school corporation for everything they are worth, even to personal assets. This is a clear violation of the kid's Constitutional and Civil Rights, and just wrong on so many levels. I am thinking perhaps maybe we should all be more aware of these cameras everywhere these days. I love to lift my cap and flip them off, but maybe something more permanent should be done. I have heard that in some cities, people sued to get them taken down. (Traffic Cams) The bad thing is, we do not know who is watching the screens on these things, and somehow, I don't want to think about it!

Social services in uk do this for years, if they target you they will spy into your home.

Disgraceful and no oversight.

you would find this news article shocking. Google has been



In 2006, Google announced that they would use in-built microphones to listen in on user’s background noise, be it television, music or radio – and then direct advertising at them based on their preferences.
