Everywhere one looks in America, these days, one finds cameras trained on him/her recording our every move.
Not too long ago, I stood in a parking lot of one of the nationally known Big Box stores and counted twenty-two cameras surveilling the parking area. Now that was OUTSIDE the store. Inside, they were everywhere.
But that is a private business. It doesn't bother me today as much as it did when they had those signs on the doors telling us they were watching us with their cameras -- "FOR YOUR PROTECTION!" No they weren't! They were looking for thieves! Even before a customer had entered the building -- that customer had been lied to! Heck of a way to do business, right?
Now we have police/government cameras spying on us 24-7, 365. I sometimes feel as though I'm a specimen in a Petrie dish!
Now we learn of this: "The FBI's Next Generation Identification system would use photographs and biometric data to help law enforcement entities nationwide identify possible persons of interests.
Privacy advocates fear the FBI will indiscriminately mash together biometric and photographic records into a searchable database, not taking the time to separate the wholly innocent from former convicts, the arrested-and-acquitted, and persons of interest.
The controversy lies in the grey area surrounding information outside the bounds of arrest records or mug shots such as pictures from social networks, fingerprints from background checks for job applications, or even photographs taken of folks just walking down the street."

What we've here, people, is a police state!

"FOR YOUR PROTECTION!" No they weren't! They were looking for thieves!
Maybe protecting us from false arrest for shoplifting?
I see no protection from the parking lot cameras. They aid in capturing criminals but protect no one. Its obvious CCTV cameras arent a deterrent, criminals ignore them.
many years ago, when I first started talking about the cameras going up at intersections, I was disbelieved and generally made fun of. Until they were specifically pointed out, people just didn’t even see them. Now they are everywhere, and people still don’t really see them.
