The DEA and ICE are hiding surveillance cameras in streetlights
« on: November 11, 2018, 08:36:05 AM »

Quartz

The US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have hidden an undisclosed number of covert surveillance cameras inside streetlights around the country, federal contracting documents reveal.

According to government procurement data, the DEA has paid a Houston, Texas company called Cowboy Streetlight Concealments LLC roughly $22,000 since June 2018 for ďvideo recording and reproducing equipment.Ē ICE paid out about $28,000 to Cowboy Streetlight Concealments over the same period of time.

Itís unclear where the DEA and ICE streetlight cameras have been installed, or where the next deployments will take place. ICE offices in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio have provided funding for recent acquisitions from Cowboy Streetlight Concealments; the DEAís most recent purchases were funded by the agencyís Office of Investigative Technology, which is located in Lorton, Virginia.

What exactly is your concern?  Yes 'the man' can monitor and suppress protest.  That is true.  But it is more likely the perpetrator of a rape will be caught on tape or the license plate of a car escaping a hit and run accident will be nailed.  What do you think the implications of public surveillance are?   

Personal surveillance where they follow you around on your cell phone is a different animal.  I don't think they should be able to give out traffic tickets at all using public surveillance but using public cameras to investigate criminal activity of a felony nature seems a very good idea to me.

I make the distinction between public vs private surveillance to be a very important one.  Private surveillance is a devils tool and it will amplify doom.

Seems to me putting a camera in a streetlight can't be anything but public surveillance and is therefore OK.

Have you seen what the youth of London England are doing to the public surveillance systems there.

Your point is well taken. No argument. However, the only way out of the matrix as it stands now is to move to
somewhere where there's no wifi. Not much real estate left thats not under the blanket of the man.

As you head out to the canyon & Havasupai Res. there's no wifi. The tribe refuses to allow any kind of cell or radio/tv towers.
How cool is that......

It's game on in the hood  :evil4:

Stopped for a train after leaving work in the SODO area of Seattle last month I looked over into a parking lot next to the road I was on and saw one of these looking at me.



That pissed me off.  No streetlight, it does not even have arms to hold a flashlight.  If only:

No chicken little intended. Just a reminder when frolicking within the limits of the matrix prison.

This is a great mashup remix, check it out.

The last Free Man will never be subdued.  When everyone else is dead, he will be quite free.

The canyon's a great place to disappear into if your survival skills are top shelf.
Plenty of fresh "real" water & fish/game to harvest. Loads of nooks & crannies to hole up in if the heats on.
