Big Brother Is Watching You, 3

In Big Brother is Watching You, I told you about police surveillance drones. In Big Brother is Watching You, 2, I told you about mobile interrogation centers where the expression on your face constitutes probable cause for detention.

Now, coming soon to a Wal-Mart near you -- a mobile watchtower that can turn any fenced area into a prison compound. My comments follow the video:

First, note that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) figures into all the surveillance/control technology in this series. Second, note that Wal-Mart also plays a prominent role, perhaps because they form an integral part of the DHS turn-in-your-neighbor offensive.

Also, I think that the one narrator on the video made a correct observation when he said the present purpose is to desensitize the populace to seeing the guard towers. Otherwise, the police would station them in high crime areas rather than in a mall or Wal-Mart parking lot.

Thanks to RPC for the link to this video.
