DAYTON, Ohio Shooter and victim were just a pair of pixels, dark specks on a gray streetscape. Hair color, bullet wounds, even the weapon were not visible in the series of pictures taken from an airplane flying two miles above.
But what the images revealed to a degree impossible just a few years ago was location, mapped over time. Second by second, they showed a gang assembling, blocking off access points, sending the shooter to meet his target and taking flight after the body hit the pavement. When the report reached police, it included a picture of the blue stucco building into which the killer ultimately retreated, at last beyond the view of the powerful camera overhead.
Ive witnessed 34 of these, said Ross McNutt, the genial president of Persistent Surveillance Systems, which collected the images of the killing in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, from a specially outfitted Cessna. Its like opening up a murder mystery in the middle, and you need to figure out what happened before and after.
As Americans have grown increasingly comfortable with traditional surveillance cameras, a new, far more powerful generation is being quietly deployed that can track every vehicle and person across an area the size of a small city, for several hours at a time. Though these cameras cant read license plates or see faces, they provide such a wealth of data that police, businesses, even private individuals can use them to help identify people and track their movements.
Already, the cameras have been flown above major public events, such as the Ohio political rally where Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., named Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008, McNutt said. Theyve been flown above Baltimore; Philadelphia; Compton, Calif.; and Dayton in demonstrations for police....

Grown comfortable.? I’d say the big govt people are forcing them on us.
“Americans have grown increasingly comfortable with traditional surveillance cameras”
My opinion of that?
God uses the imagery of beasts to describe governments (kings/kingdoms) in reference to the succeeding world powers that would come after Nebuchadnezzar as the head of gold representing Babylon.
“The first was like a lion, and had eagles wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand on the feet as a man, and a mans heart was given to it.” (Babylon) Daniel 7:4
“a mans heart was given to it” = democracy
“I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.” Daniel 7:8
Antichrist is a spirit (and was already at work in Johns day) and its this spirit which empowers the “little horn” at the time of end where its also given that it can “see” like a man. I conjecture this is referencing being able to monitor its citizens every move.
Its only been within the past few decades, with the widespread availability of new technologies, communication satellites, cell towers, computers and now (Tower of Babel) internet connectivity, smart phones, webcams etc., that individual activities of law abiding free citizens everywhere on the Earth are increasingly being monitored. Weve become a surveillance society, our every move, purchase, credit transaction, web page visit, blog postings, opinions, habits and political affiliations along with anything else they want to know about us can be monitored, tracked, indexed and stored away until those in power need it to ‘protect’ us,
Its this information for which those in power will have going forward to use against anyone on the outside of this power structure, having never broken any law, to even consider public service or to seek elected office or promote any voice that fails to hold the politically acceptable ‘safe’ views, (I’m reminded of hilary and her basement full of FBI files)
They want us to assume its normal, knowing that any society where its every collective thought is consumed with finding ways to bring themselves more entertainment, joy and self-gratification will eventually shrug and give up their freedom and privacy when that comfort is threatened.
Such a system needs only to have the appropriate kinds of events to be adequately exploited along the way,
This is the spirit of antichrist at work,
Its “the eyes of a man,”
