IRS Buying Spying Equipment: Covert Cameras in Coffee Trays, Plants

W-H-A-T



Now what are they spending our money on ?

Secret SAM, 007, and the Man from Uncle would be proud !!

This is insane.

They want suppliers to provide surveillance equipment for what ????




The IRS, currently in the midst of scandals involving the targeting of conservative groups and lavish taxpayer-funded conferences, is ordering surveillance equipment that includes hidden cameras in coffee trays, plants and clock radios.

The IRS wants to secure the surveillance equipment quickly – it posted a solicitation on June 6 and is looking to close the deal by Monday, June 10. The agency already has a company lined up for the order but is not commenting on the details.

“The Internal Revenue Service intends to award a Purchase Order to an undisclosed Corporation,” reads the solicitation.......................................


Apparently this is for real.

I wonder who the nut heads are that dreamed this up

Probably to catch people cheating on their taxes would be my first guess.....you know....gathering evidence that they are doing stuff and then not declaring it.

Seems perfectly reasonable that an enforcement agency would do this.

"perfectly reasonable"


I suppose you'll condone a shoe phone next, if they buy some:



They're spying on you too, ATG....

I'm at a loss for words....what don't they trust our highly honest attorney general, to find dirt on conservative parties?

Reasonable you say ?

What happens when they target the wrong people ?

Or what if they simply "carpet bomb" a "target area" of people.

The innocent victims get their names smeared anyway


We just got through hearing about specific "targets" the IRS.S. admitted to.

What recourse do we have ?

I forgot about 'ol 86 !

I wonder if the dreamers got the idea from Max ?

Same people who thought up having your refrigerators,microwaves,and ovens spy on you.

Least the NSA lets you spend money to get spied on.

ETA:

Your tracked on your cell phone.
Your tracked in your cars.
Your tracked with those new 'smart meters'
Your tracked with 'smart appliances',

Now coffee trays, and plants. Orwell is saying flawless big brother victory.

Seeing as how the quantities(QTY) are 2 - 4 it doesn't appear to be too wide spread. Probably to be used for in office loss prevention or something similar. They'd need a whole lot more than 2 or 4 cameras to spy on anything other than breakrooms and office supply storage. I ordered 24 cameras just for my own property and home, plus 2 dual channel receiving/recording units. So nothing in this story is even a real story just more of the same old doom porn and "the sky is falling" sensationalism.

It seems quite reasonable for a corrupt government to assume that everyone else is corrupt as well.

I toast the IRS and every other person working for the government: "May to reap what you sow eternally." It is your choice.

People breaking the law, whether the law is good or not, is a fact of life.

I really don't understand the fuss - unless you are suggesting that no-one ever breaks the law??

I don't respond to you. Sometimes bridges get burned when people are mocked.

it will never be perfectly reasonable to violate rights and gather evidence for crimes attributed to individuals as a means to establish probable cause to then violate rights and gather evidence.

It's more than likely a "test run".

As soon as they know the stuff works, they will buy thousands.

Watch for it.

What about when THEY break the laws and overstep the boundaries of the laws ???

Haven't you been following the stories lately ?

You do understand that the innocent victims get screwed too ..... right ?

In fact, the innocents get cracked harder sometimes.

This is the commie agenda at work.

Doubtful. They don't buy 4 (FOUR) cameras for a test run. They would buy hundreds, hell even if they were buying hundreds I still wouldn't even raise an eyebrow. Retail stores have between 1 and 200 cameras per location, multiple locations and you're looking at hundreds to thousands of cameras just for retail theft. The IRS has locations in every state and multiples in most states, they'd need thousands of cameras just to cover their own property, they would need literally millions, I mean 10's to 100's of millions of cameras to put them in just medical offices alone. You might want to loosen the strap on your tinfoil hat, I think it's cutting the oxygen flow to your brain off. Four cameras is logistically insignificant, I have 4 cameras covering my front entrance alone. When they order a million or more I'll eat my hat and post the video on YouTube.

Irrelevant to the point - which is why do THEY want cameras.

It's not "commie" - it is law enforcement.

do you have any evidence that that is happening with this equipment, or is intended to happen?

And who is the IRS going to spy on? the NSA


Can somebody tells me what in the heck is going on? are the agencies in government now are going rogue and are looking for leverage while gathering dirt on their bosses?

This counry truly has gone down the crapper.

you suggested that as the use in the first place, then tried to justify it, so i don't really understand what you're asking.

you want me to prove your own assertion correct instead of addressing the legality of your assertion.

I don't know where you got that from.

I suggested that it is not particularly odd that a law enforcement agency would be obtaining surveillance equipment, since part of their brief is to gather evidence.

You then expanded that to include various nefarious activities which I did not mention.

Please do not put words into my mouth.
