"This is the future if nothing is done to stop it," is the ominous way The Atlantic describes the recent Big Brother tactics used by LA County Sheriffs to "police" areas such as Compton. Residents were unaware ("A lot of people do have a problem with the eye in the sky, the Big Brother, so to mitigate those kinds of complaints we basically kept it pretty hush hush")that, as the police stated, "we literally watched all of Compton during the times that we were flying, so we could zoom in anywhere within the city of Compton and follow cars and see people," as they trialled a new system which if adopted, would mean Americans can be policed like Iraqis and Afghanis under occupation. As The Atlantic concludes, the sheriff didn't conclude that the "wide area surveillance" wouldn't be like Big Brother after all, just that Big Brother capabilities would help to solve more crimes... so why not tryout mass surveillance?

These creeps always turn into somebody who wasn't elected. Why didn't they run on a "mass surveillance" platform, the let the people who pay for their salaries and equipment decide.
Another Sheriff in lock step with the police state.
I thought Sheriffs were supposed to be our last line of defense against the federal gov’t. /s
The Bundy Ranch incident, this incident: they can’t be trusted either.
“Big Brother” is just a polite way of saying police state.
The people of Compton vote for big government, entitlement, dependency and therefore big-brother every single time. Why are they acting surprised?
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!

It’s Compton. Most of those people already have GPS ankle bracelets anyway.....
Thanks for the ping, Nully.
Your pings help me sort the wheat from the chaf. Much appreciated.
if being constantly monitored is ok... then why won’t they turn over emails, logs, birth certificate, etc when asked?
on top of that, just try to record a cop you happened to see making an arrest. you’ll be face down and under arrest if they spot you.
yet, we’re supposed to put up with this crap. wtf
Liar, liar, pants on fire.
Sheriffs can be voted out, a primary jewel of our Constitution.
Practicing for 2016 no doubt
