Thought Police?
« on: October 14, 2011, 08:16:31 PM »
Boy, doesn't this just sound like a 'thought police' (aka democrat) wet dream right here...

Excerpt:
"Using cameras and sensors the "pre-crime" system measures and tracks changes in a person's body movements, the pitch of their voice and the rhythm of their speech.
It also monitors breathing patterns, eye movements, blink rate and alterations in body heat, which are used to assess an individual's likelihood to commit a crime.
The Future Attribute Screening Technology (FAST) programme is already being tested on a group of government employees who volunteered to act as guinea pigs.
The first test was carried out at an undisclosed location in the north-eastern United States.
According to the Department of Homeland Security it was not at an airport, but was at a "large venue that is a suitable substitute for an operational setting"."

we were discussing this a week or two ago (before you joined us I guess) but I don't recall a mention that its already been tested...

and who are these people that are as stupid as all get out but can come up with a sentence like this?

"large venue that is a suitable substitute for an operational setting".

Hundreds of pre-crime surveillance cameras are to be installed in San Francisco’s subway system that will analyze “suspicious behavior” and alert guards to potential criminal or terrorist activity – before any crime has been committed.

Will queers groping in public qualify as suspicious behavior?  How about straights? 

See what NADA et al hath wrought?  No, this is SF and HomSec, nobody is paying attention...
Irrumabo!  GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*
