NYPD Unveils Orwellian ‘Domain Awareness System’
“New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is touting the latest police state technology.
The “Domain Awareness System,” aside from its blatantly Orwellian name, is a super surveillance database possible through a partnership between Microsoft and the city of New York. The system allows NYPD 24/7 access to closed-circuit TV feeds from around the city while simultaneously cross-checking criminal and terrorist databases.
Speaking of the importance of security over freedoms, Bloomberg stated at the unveiling Wednesday, “The bad guys have everything that we do, too. And if you really want to worry about security and freedoms, that’s the first thing…We are not your mom and pop police department anymore. We are in the next century. We are leading the pack.””
