The Police: Every Breath You Take, Every Move You Make, They're Watching

With the help of federal subsidies, police in East Orange, New Jersey have created a system of immersive surveillance that appears to be modeled after the totalitarian ?pre-crime? system depicted in the sci-fi film ?Minority Report.?

Officers remotely operating any of the street?s plentiful surveillance cameras can ?paint? suspicious targets with a directed light beam up to a city block away. Patrol cars are likewise equipped with cameras that scan the license plates of all vehicles and have access to detailed databases containing personal information on drivers, and that are cross-referenced to various ?watch lists.?

?The message to criminals is: The police are observing you, the police are recording you, and the police are responding,? states East Orange Police Chief William Robinson. Of course, police in East Orange ? like their counterparts elsewhere ? are most likely prepared to arrest any citizen who observes, records, and responds to criminal abuse by police officers.

Meanwhile, the NYPD is working with the Pentagon to deploy a series of body scanners that can subject all pedestrians to virtual strip-searches.

Those who presume to rule us no longer bother to pretend as if they care about the Constitution.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
