Quite often in a big city like New York, and elsewhere, technology is touted as being the key to protecting society from criminals and terrorists. The terror threat in particular is flaunted each time some new technology is introduced or expanded. With such marketing by the press and esteemed persons such as NYPD commissioner Ray Kelly, most folks won't or simply don't bother to question the real justification, expense, or possible infringements upon civil liberties. A few convenient cases of inept buffoons charged with terrorism, like the FBI-sponsored "Newburgh 4" are enough to keep the general public thinking there is an omnipresent terror threat and that no sacrifice is too much for security.

Technology and Police Hypocrisy


That's just a snipped of the piece but there's actually a lot of info in there with inline links and stuff. The article is a little dated, but I thought about it reading the thread about the recent Rochester case. How the police see fit to use cameras and various tech without any concern for our rights, but god help you if you film them. Police don't like it when you use their tools against them.

Here's the Rochester thread too...
