Oh that burned. I been researching this story for a few minutes. DHS is giving this info out over their limitlessly funded butts. This is their ''precious" they must protect no matter how many of us have to die. Sorry if this is posted cuz I didn't see it.


A federal court this week has ordered the Department of Homeland of Security to the secrecy and disclose details about the so-called “internet Kill Switch,” that would allow the agency to “deactivate wireless communications networks” if it determined a localized or national crisis demanded such an action.

From your link

On July 3, 2011, a Bay Area Rapid Transit (“BART”) officer in San Francisco shot and killed a homeless man, Charles Hill. The officer alleged later that Hill had attacked him with a knife and that he had acted in self-defense. The death sparked a major protest against BART on July 11, 2011. Though the protests disrupted service at several transit stations, no one was injured. A second protest was planned one month later, but was cut short after BART officials cut off all cellular service inside four transit stations for a period of three hours. This act prevented any individual on the station platform from sending or receiving phone calls, messages, or other data.


Thats what its really about!

---Controlling communication in the name of "national security" ---
Niiiiicce

Wonder how many people not caring about the protests were thinking, "Now WTH is wrong with my damn phone"?



The so-called 'kill switch' is gonna be used in the same manner.
To stop people from sharing information when TPTB sees it as a threat towards them.

--OR--

Possibly to prevent people from finding out what is really going on like in a SHTF type scenario.

Where i live (UK) they've just made it a crime to place any kind of sign/notice in our gardens, and now the housing organisations have made it a breach of tenancy if the tenant places any kind of notice in their _ Add that to control of the wires and we can see we have been silenced.
These measure tell me that either-
1. tptb are seriously afraid.
or
2. They have something planned thats going to cause riots.

Do you have a link for the suggestion of it being a crime to place a sign in your garden? I'm in the UK too, and won't stand for any of this victimless crime nonsense.

As for killing the wireless networks... that's not something that bothers me in the slightest. It would be a real pleasure to sit in the pub or at a restaurant and enjoy time with friends and associates without someone pulling out a mobile device and being anti-social.

I do see the dangers in preventing the public record/film/message other members of the public if the wireless networks are shut down, but this is where we should simply learn to say "no" to the politicos... take no crud. It really is that simple. Be polite, be assertive, and remember you're in charge - they work for us!

Hi dampnickers

Well, about a year ago I saw it reported on the tv news that councils up and down the country were going to make it an offence to place any kind of notice/sign in your garden, a fine of £1000 was mentioned. Now that you ask for a link I cant find ANY reference to it! I find that most odd. I will continue to search as I know it was broadcast so it must have been printed somewhere!
As for the ban on signs/notices in windows . I know thats true as I am one of those who's been banned.

I'm stunned about the idea of being banned from placing a sign in your window ... Would that include placing a sign saying "cold callers aren't welcome" to prevent being disturbed by such people? It's standard practice in parts of Yorkshire, close to where I am, for the residents there to put such signs in their windows...

Whereabouts in the UK are you? I'd love to hear more, and get involved to get this authoritarian nonsense squashed before it gets too far out of hand... I undestand if you don't want to put too much personal info on here in the open, so feel freee to U2U me.
edit on 25/11/2013 by dampnickers because: corrected to allow the word "window" to show.
