It's a pbs interpretation of the crazy technological police state we're heading into, and it's all framed around "well because of/since
9-11..." and "they got to test this stuff out in war zones..."
Another constant throughout is how there's no way it can be stopped.
It's like a preview of the end of everyone's idea of america. It won't take too awful long for everyone who still "remembers the good old
days" or "how things are supposed to be" to die off or whatever... and the people with all the money and technology/weaponry are going to have free
reign to push this stuff as far as they'd like. And we still have a pretty good idea of how that ends up.

Look at what the department of homeland security is rolling out now, following the media-billboard-messages in thousands of wal-marts... Detailed
dramatic production pieces instructing us how to spot "criminals and terrorists." They use tense music and make it seem like a bomb is about to
explode at any minute... unless we report someone, which just means call the cops
Why such a huge push for people to start making more police reports? Police tactics are getting tougher, rougher, and more invasive, so why do we
want to interact with them more?
Seriously, look how much editing/production/drama went into making these...
How is this not considered terrorism?

I only watched the one for retail employees in full and parts of others, and this all seems like common sense and awareness training to me. People
being aware of their surroundings and suspicious behavior and activities have saved many lives and prevented many tragedies. It's not as if they're
asking employees or civilians to approach or detain anyone...just to report it to the proper authorities to be checked out. Like they said, better
safe than sorry. I don't see anything nefarious or alarming here.
