This video is just a drive through an average, moderately sized American city.
Things are way beyond just traffic cameras… The average city intersection is jammed with so much surveillance technology, that it would be difficult to even sort out what is what.
During a couple of intersections we observed, there were not only eye-in-the-sky cameras, but angles of every direction of traffic, plus several antennas relying data to the authorities, a red light camera photographing license plates and generating revenue, and what else?
Well, just what are some of these other traffic gizmos? We saw one shaped like a bell… a spotlight… and several small white boxes… and plenty more on the road — most, if not all, of which are integrated on an area wide wireless mesh network connecting to law enforcement and even Homeland Security.
Meanwhile, the news is discussing things like gunshot detection (and conversation monitoring) microphones on New York city streets – implemented over a decade ago in places like Austin, TX – and sophisticated mesh networks that can track cell phone location data and location history from pedestrians and passing cars at intersection data points… in turn relaying real-time surveillance and location data to a network of law enforcement agencies, as well as Fusion Centers operated by Homeland Security and the FBI.
Just think what the combination of real-time cell location data, combined with traffic light monitoring of license plates could accomplish… and don’t forget that Homeland Security is continuing to phase in “intelligent” street lights with two-way communications, monitoring, live-time behavior correction and even state-sponsored propaganda announcements.
Somehow, this is bound to be just scratching the surface. We now live in 1984, and beyond 1984 in a total-surveillance panopticon fed by grass-roots “sousveillance” user-generated data as well as top-down police and city camera and location data.
Wow! Talk about not being in Kansas anymore…
