So the police state has decided to amp things up a notch.
Surveillance of the public has been given steroids with the introduction of intellistreets.
I had known this technology was coming for almost a decade now.
Most of the poeple i had told about it either doubted it would ever happen of flippantly remarked that it sounded like a good idea.
Here's an quote from privacy advocate Daphne Lee in the article:
“This technology, you know is taking us to a place where, you know, you’ll essentially be monitored from the moment you leave your home till the
moment you get home,”
Would something like that make you feel safe or would it make you paranoid at the possiblities which exist for the rampant abuse of such
You know who else has 24/7 surveillance and monitoring?
The prison system.
So the American police state is starting to fall into line with it's UK counterpart.
Everyone guilty until proven more guilty.
We are seeing them pop up in places with 1-person consent listening laws but the possibility that this new technology will be abused and become the
focal point of numerous civil rights violations is too glaring to ignore.

I love how the reporter comments towards the end that they function on wi-fi, which he states is highly unlikely to be hijacked.
Wi-fi...unlikely to be hijacked!?
ALL wireless technology can be hacked and in MOST cases with unbelievable ease whether cars, tv's, computers, phones, smart appliances and medical
implants...OH, BUT THE SIGNS ARE SECURE.
It would not suprise me to discover that "Illuminating Concepts" is in fact a venture capital firm subsidiary of Darpa or some similar alphabet
We are entering a VERY dark place here people.
