Assuming something like this was explicitly stated to be legal by the constitution, then what would be your objection to having them potentially listen in on your conversations?

If you don't talk about having done anything criminal, then there's no harm done right?


It's a violation of privacy.

A person need not be a gun owner to support the second amendment. A person need not be gay to support gay marriage. I person need not be guilty of something to want privacy.

We have a similar system in Maricopa County Arizona home of sheriff Joe. It was pushed through with the promise that it would allow capture of folks randomly shooting into the air. We had a young girl die here several years ago on New Year's Eve from random gun fire and they used her death to get it pushed through here.

Had this friend...
Back in about 2001 we were in 7th or 8th grade together.
Use to hang out at his house after school and play football, jump on trampoline, etc.

His father had this device that could eves drop on ANYONES telephone conversations.
(we were listening in on some one saturday morning while my friend and I were eating donuts)

Strange.
But if this tech was available back then.... Imagine what they have now.
Someone is ALWAYS listening.

I don't understand why more people aren't simply taking down/disabling cameras (and now microphones) instead of complaining about them. They can be taken down/out faster than they can be put up. Can't they?

If somebody's really that worried about eavesdropping on conversations in a public place, it's not that difficult to circumvent. All it takes is a car with a working stereo and windows that roll up. Nothing new either, from what I understand it's an old-school way to deal with eavedropping when you know you're being tailed.

Still the main point of these things is to figure out where a gunshot came from when dealing with high-crime areas.

Stay off fecebook. You are just writing your profile for them to use against you.

If google/facebook/youtube anything like that demands a phone number give them a random fax line. They have no right to demand info yet people willlingly give it away.

Blogs are the worst, people post everything about themselves there to gain attention and respect from people whom they will never meet.

Whatever they're doing is without my permissions and free will. They will wear all karma for being slavers and would have to kill me to enforce it. I refuse to live in this crappy world, even worse than ours.

Surveillance and listening devices pop out of everything in this movie filled with plastic plants.

Also, will be excercising soul and thought ability and only picture the eutopia, and them waking up and stepping down.

Interesting OP, albeit troubling.

Apparently the UK is working on a CCTV camera that can scan you like TSA - from a light post in the street? It's like it's the first stationary robotic cop. Information? Like the big signs they put up on curves that tell everyone that they are going to fast? I can't imagine that is why.

Maybe gun control is to avoid people shooting them out. Much more expensive to fix than their predecessors - the non-talking, useful light in the night.


They need to institute some "car control" too, then. In one of the cities I lived in a few years back, they installed CameraCops to catch people running red lights. The system was abused (typical!) and before you knew it, their CameraCops were being run over in the middle of the night, from angles NOT coming from the intersection being watched.

I Saw one in particular on my regular route on the ground in pieces (pole and all) 4 separate times before they just stopped putting it back up.

The supporters of these devices may claim it is only for gunshot sounds, but when the potential for abuse exist, especially when it comes to our constitutional rights, I hope many would agree our rights and that potential for abuse, should take precedence first. The program and devices should be trashed along with NDAA, Patriot Act, TSA etc.

These devices don't serve the American People, but serve and protect the elite.

That’s one way to deal with the problem!


This type of corrective action is another reason these contraptions won’t be put in rural areas; target practice, anyone?? I bet there’d be more than a few people using them to site in their 30.06’s.

DUH, homeland security was meant for us to begin with. What did you expect?

Why doesn't DHS actually do their job--saving people from unneeded suffering--rather than invading our lives with this big brother tyranny?

Oh yeah. They're worthless shills.

Department of Hindering Society.

DHS.

The second those cameras/mics go up, is the second I take them down. I'll admit right here, right now: I've taken down speeding cameras in my area. I'll do it again and again and i will never be caught. I promise. Why? Because I work for the city and I know the law.

That being said, I made an Oath and I intend to keep it. No one here got to vote on this system so it is my duty to take those cameras down.

Civil disobedience takes practice, but there are plenty of exercises to choose from.

Lima-1, out.

Very well, I propose we take countermeasures to this attack by openly walking around in urban areas loudly planning faux-crimes and political dissent. This way, it will tax the system in such a way they will be unable to effectively use it.

You know what's wild? Some people already believe that street lights tell them what to do.

Man all this makes me wonder what kind of crap are they going to come up with next all in the name of "safety". Obviously they are afraid of us. Look what may be coming next.



Reports indicate that the US military has poured huge sums of money into surveillance drone miniaturization and is developing micro aircraft which now come in a swarm of bug-sized flying spies.
