I'm not too keen on all the fear mongering that goes on at prison planet / infowars but this report caught my eye.. the potential for abuse is startling.



The company behind a new ‘smart’ street lighting system which is being rolled out in major cities like Las Vegas admits that the technology has the capability of analyzing voices and tracking people, features that will aid the Department of Homeland Security in “protecting its citizens.”

If you work in a place where, for example, security classified aircraft radar systems are repaired, there's a general acceptance that anything you actually see, will be at least 10 years old in design terms.
You might hear about technology that is merely 5 years old, but that's as close as you'll get to "The Sharp End."
Anything seen by a civilian will be at least 20 years out of date.

I've been a civvy for a long time now, but I feel that this awareness is well worth holding on to, when I try and contemplate where military technology might be now.

What we are told about these lights, - (sorry, "Outdoor Media Solutions") will be what we are supposed to know.
Any real assessment of their capabilities is virtually impossible.

We dont need nor want that much "protection" tyvm. We aren't animals to be tracked, poked, prodded and monitored. Id say that's not only a human rights violation but a civil rights violation. Back off please; that's waaay too much.

I like how the lights will dim and rise according to the environment though. Pretty neat.

Not sure how removing my privacy will protect me.

And, to add, since even the Obamacare site has been pone to hacks, what makes the government believe that systems like this aren't hackable?

You'd be surprised to know its not always Government, nor agency but private companies who give NO damns about your privacy or any of your rights.

By tracking all people all the time, the bad guys wont be able to commit crimes without being caught shortly after.

Well, that is the dream for the US gov anyway.

Yes, well and good to catch the roughhousers and the scalliwags, the hooligans and the wardewells, not to mention the dreaded gang of Vegas-style ladies of the mysterious night, to give them all a slap on the wrist and a wagging finger in their faces. But what happens when the definition of bad guys changes to pedestrians, women with no hats, adults breaking curfew, and walking-while-eating. Then we'll in trouble! Moral: It's always the next guys crime we want to stop and not our own. or something.

I agree throws arms up in the air I want my privacy in public where everyone can see me stomps feet because this is a police state in the making and i won't have it posts on the internet and while i am at it, I want to be able to have my privacy online too so when i post things in public i dont want no one reading it googles nsa and google.

something fails when you expect privacy in broad day light. and it's not the lack of privacy.

I know I know, all the secret meetings under street lamps is now a thing of the past, thanks to the new world order. pretty soon, we wont be able to go out in public at all without people seeing us. or hearing us.

it's a crazy world we live in and no doubt if they have microphones and stuff now, imagine just what they had 20 years ago... I bet the government has had the ability to record voices for like, decades and stuff.

*really lost on this one, you guys are just frothing at the mouth at nothing*

It becomes their business to know everything about you if you become identified (correctly or not).

If you had the same name as a real terrorist living next door to you, their tracking would prove its not you - is there not some merit to that?

I dont like it either, so dont get me wrong - just saying that if the intel on a guy who up to something was real, then the system could quickly find out who they talk to where they go who may be accomplices etc.

Think of it as a black box of your life, its not opened unless it has to be. At least, this would be my hope.

We're doing just fine thanks for your concern, we don't want "blackboxes of our lives."
NO thanks.

Bull.

I'm not buying it for a second.

Sure, go ahead, prison-rape my privacy! I have nothing to hide!
-Said no-one ever!

It's not about criminal behaviour.

It's about privacy.

Freedom is a bitch sometimes. There is a double-edged sword to it.
The bitch is that even bad people have a right to privacy, up until the time that they violate others rights.

Different country.
Different rules.
Different interpretations of rights.
