It sounds like something from the film Minority Report: a CCTV surveillance system that recognises people from their face or walk and analyses whether they might be about to commit a terrorist or criminal act. But Trapwire is real and, according to documents released online byWikiLeaks last week, is being used in a number of countries to try to monitor people and threats.

Founded by former CIA agents, Trapwire uses data from a network of CCTV systems and numberplate readers to figure out the threat level in huge numbers of locations. That means security officials can “focus on the highest priorities first, taking a proactive and collaborative approach to defence against attacks,” say its creators.

The documents outlining Trapwire’s existence and its deployment in the US were apparently obtained in a hack of computer systems belonging to the intelligence company Stratfor at the end of last year.

Documents from the US department of homeland security show that it paid $832,000 to deploy Trapwire in Washington DC and Seattle.

Invest in black box data recorders for vehicles if you have the funds. A recent bill that has already passed

by the Senate and is set to be stamped by the House would make it mandatory for all new cars in the United States to be fitted with black box data recorders from 2015 onwards.

Mandatory Big Brother Black Boxes In All New Cars From 2015 lajam

Section 31406 of Senate Bill 1813 (known as MAP-21), calls for “Mandatory Event Data Recorders” to be installed in all new automobiles and legislates for civil penalties to be imposed against individuals for failing to do so.

“Not later than 180 days after the date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall revise part 563 of title 49, Code of Federal Regulations, to require, beginning with model year 2015, that new passenger motor vehicles sold in the United States be equipped with an event data recorder that meets the requirements under that part,” states the bill.

Although the text of legislation states that such data would remain the property of the owner of the vehicle, the government would have the power to access it in a number of circumstances, including by court order, if the owner consents to make it available, and pursuant to an investigation or inspection conducted by the Secretary of Transportation.

According to GOPers, America is so broke that we have to implement austerity measures, the same ones that are literally killing people in Europe. Suicide rates are up due to the severity of the measures. But how broke are we that our government asks us to simply look the other way while people are dying? We can’t just skim through the deficit/budget numbers – the real ‘entitlements’ are afforded recklessly and needlessly to the military, domestic and foreign, as well as surveillance systems for monitoring American citizens. An estimated $1.738 trillion was spent worldwide on militaries last year — an enormous chunk of that is attributed to the United States — almost as much as the entire world’s expenditures combined.

Perimeter patrols at more than 20 Michigan prisons have now been cut.

Surveillance cameras and motion detectors are now doing the jobs once done by officers in vehicles.

It’s an effort to save the state $13 million dollars.

For years many Michigan prisons have had 24 hour vehicle surveillance around the perimeter of the property, but not anymore.

“26 of our 31 correctional facilities that had these perimeter security vehicles, previously they ran nonstop 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day regularly starting today, we are going to run those randomly,” said Russ Marlan, Spokesperson MI Department of Corrections.
