Trapwire is the name of a program revealed in the latest Wikileaks bonanza—it is the mother of all leaks, by the way. Trapwire would make something like disclosure of UFO contact or imminent failure of a major U.S. bank fairly boring news by comparison.
And the ambitious techno-fascists behind Trapwire seem to be quite disappointed that word is getting out so swiftly; the Wikileaks web site is reportedly sustaining 10GB worth of DDoS attacks each second, which is massive.
Anyway, here’s what Trapwire is, according to Russian-state owned media network RT (apologies for citing “foreign media”… if we had a free press, I’d be citing something published here by an American media conglomerate): “Former senior intelligence officials have created a detailed surveillance system more accurate than modern facial recognition technology—and have installed it across the U.S. under the radar of most Americans, according to emails hacked by Anonymous.
DC Chief of Police Cites Role of TrapWire During Senate Committee Hearing
12:43pm (ET) 10/13/2011
Chairman Lieberman, Ranking Member Collins, members of the Committee, staff and guests - thank you for the opportunity to present this statement on the status of information sharing among federal and local partners. I am the Chief of Police of the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, the primary police force in the nation's capital. As the Chief of a major city police department, I am very pleased to be able to brief you on the significant progress made in federal--local information sharing, and how that has improved our ability to safeguard the public.
" The MPD receives SARs through many different methods, including 911 calls, text messages, email, our iWatchDC public web portal, from trained terrorism liaison officers, TrapWire reports from critical infrastructure sites, and observations made by patrol officers during the course of their duties. All of these SAR reports are forwarded to the fusion center and reviewed by trained analysts to ensure that the reports meet the established standards for suspicious activity reporting. If they do, the reports are entered into software programs where they are plotted for pattern analysis and proximity to critical infrastructure and other sensitive locations."
A proprietary white paper produced by TrapWire, formerly called Abraxas Applications, describes the product as “a unique, predictive software system designed to detect patterns of pre-attack surveillance.” In an interview from 2005 with the Northern Virginia Technology Council, the CEO of Abraxas Corporation Richard “Hollis” Helms says the goal of TrapWire is to “collect information about people and vehicles that is more accurate than facial recognition, draw patterns, and do threat assessments of areas that may be under observation from terrorists.” Fred Burton, the former CEO of Stratfor and current vice president, describes TrapWire in an email from November 2009 as “a technology solution predicated upon behavior patterns in red zones to identify surveillance. It helps you connect the dots over time and distance.”

On the topic, 1987 is becoming a reality,
1987? Did I miss something? I thought this was 2012...was there some significance to 1987?

Walk the walk and lose your cell phone (personal government tracking GPS listening device).
Or, would that be too inconvenient?

I don't see how this is shocking or even a bother.
People of religious faiths are suppose to act like their choice of higher power is watching them at all times anyway.
When you're out and about, you shouldn't be up to naughty business anyway. If you do, well, expect to get caught out for it. Simple.
