According to the article, the CDOJ has been spying on everyone since April 26th., 2016.
What’s even worse is the CDOJ is paying NEC $650,000 every year in ‘support fees’. Which means Calif. taxpayers are paying $650K a year for the privilege of being spied on.
“The Federal Department of Homeland Security is providing funding to states and localities to help support these Fusion Centers, which are equipped with surveillance, communications, and information technology systems…”
According to page 8 of NEC’s, ICJIS document, when the contractors were finished with the installation they had to destroy all evidence (documents) of their collaboration with the CDOJ.
In other words, the DOJ is covering their tracks and doesn’t want the public to know how widespread their facial recognition surveillance system really is. (To find out more about the DOJ lying to Congress click here, here & here.)
If the DOJ and police are willing to lie about facial recognition, has the Bill of Rights become a joke?
Page 24 of ICJS document reveals, their cameras are capable of identifying people in real-time.
It’s also troubling to discover, that just about anyone can use these cameras to identify the public without a warrant. Page 27 reveals how law enforcement partners and public safety agencies have access to the cameras.
Page 27 also reveals that facial recognition cameras have the ability to track, watch or flag people.
And pages 33 & 34 reveal how the CDOJ uses the National Institute of Standard and Technology and the American National Standard for Information Standards to help them spy on everyone.
“Law enforcement, public safety, courts, corrections, probations, parole, DAs and public defenders, and even agencies like the DMV, Labor, Business Licensing and, Human and Social Services, are involved in criminal justice integration systems (CJIS) projects and are leveraging our tools to share data in real time.”
Two years ago, the Carnahan Courthouse in St. Louis began using police run facial recognition cameras to identify everyone.
“A group of current and retired St. Louis police officers developed the technology over eight years and recently formed a company, Blue Line Security Solutions, to market it.”
Court visitors are asked to pause at the gates and take off their hats, glasses or other obstructions, so facial recognition cameras can identify them.
Soon every government agency will have facial recognition cameras, unless we do something now.
Don’t believe them, facial recognition is all about control, knowing who you are and where you are.
Do you feel safer knowing the government is using corporations to spy on you and your family?
