Thread: Corporate Sponsered Surveillance

    Motherboard / Vice: July 29th 2019: Amazon Told Police It Has Partnered With 200 Law Enforcement Agencies...

    The article is about "Ring" doorbells from Amazon. Per the article, Amazon is offering special incentives to Law Enforcement. If Law Enforcement promotes "Ring" to their community, they will receive credit toward "free rings" for every "ring" sold in their communities.

    There is also a "Ring Neighborhood Watch App"....

    A Police and Surveillance State is no longer a future prediction. It hasn't been for many years. "

    In the name of public safety" Massive Surveillance will only increase with intensity.

    The Neighborhood Watch app does not bother me so much. I kind of like knowing if the house three doors down was burglarized last night, reminds me that criminals maybe casing my neighborhood and that I should be keenly aware of personal security.

    What does bother me is a recent local news story about the possibly of granting police access to ALL Ring cameras, citywide.
    My data, I should have an "Opt Out" option.
