Thom Hartmann - The Domain Awareness System: A New Police State

by Thom Hartmann posted Aug 10 2012 3:19PM

New York City is poised to become the surveillance capital of America.  On Wednesday, city officials unveiled a massive new surveillance system that they say will “revolutionize law enforcement.”  The Domain Awareness System - as it’s called - gathers information from thousands of video cameras mounted around the city.  And using maps, city records, arrest records, license plate readers, and 911 calls, it brings everything together in a centralized source to be reviewed by Police.

The city is already monitoring live feeds from more than 3,000 cameras – mostly in the financial district – but more cameras are expected to be added soon.  This technology was developed for the city by Microsoft - and will be packaged and sold to other cities around our nation - with New York getting a cut of the profits.

So, not only has domestic surveillance become a tool for the wealthy elite to suppress an American population that is growing more and more restless – but it’s also a tool to make a lot of money.  Welcome to America – The Corporate Police State.
