BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU: FBI & DEA UNLAWFULLY COLLECTED MASS LICENSE PLATE DATA ACROSS THE US ON MILLIONS OF AMERICANS

FBI deployed mass tracking devices (cameras) across US that could record up to 1,800 license plates a minute, according to internal documents obtained by the ACLU, says London Guardian

…And So Did the DEA

As usual these days, one has to read the foreign press to find out what’s happening in our country. Just like the Soviet citizens had to do at the time USSR communist oligarchs controlled the media.4628e4da-b0dd-4c17-bc17-5ac249066d81-620x372

Anyway, the Guardian report, based on ACLU (American Civic Liberties Union) research, revealed today that NSA was not the only government agency breaking the law while collecting mass data on private American citizens. Check this out…

“Multiplied across the US, the ACLU has calculated that millions of Americans are subject to the surveillance, from which at its most extreme profiles of an individuals movement, behavior and associations could be created.

Jay Stanley, the ACLU’s expert on technology-related privacy issues, said that the heavily redacted documents released by the FBI left many questions still unanswered.

“As is so often the case, we are left with the feeling that the public should know more about the policies that the FBI has developed – if the agency has guidance relating to privacy concerns over this very sensitive technology, then the public should be told about it.”

  1. I’ve noticed having been back on the mainland for 3 or 4 years now. All the cameras at every intersection even in small towns across the Midwest and our interstate highways as we’ve traveled.

    When we flew out of Hawaii for the last time to Oakland to pick up our car we felt free in the wide open places, that is until we hit a screening point in New Mexico where the DHS and many other agencies pointed over 20 Cameras at us as we pasted through.

    WOW! Did we get sent to Russia by mistake. This is certainly not the America I grew up in…
