Gloucester Township Police’s new 911eye emergency dispatch system lets emergency service operators see video live-streamed from a caller’s phone.

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

A New Jersey police department has unveiled technology that allows 911 operators to stream video from callers’ smartphones. Sounds like a good idea, at first – but where does the surveillance stop?

Gloucester Township Police’s new 911eye emergency dispatch system lets emergency service operators see video live-streamed from a caller’s phone, giving first responders an idea of what they’re getting into before anyone is sent to the scene. For now, the caller has to activate the livestream with a link sent by the 911 dispatcher, which allows operators to use the phone’s camera and microphone. But this is the first step down a very slippery slope.

by Paul Joseph Watson, Summit News:

Could lead to “total destruction” of Hong Kong’s capitalist system.

Authorities in Hong Kong are considering whether to impose draconian martial law powers in a bid to crush pro-democracy protests.

According to a report in the South China Morning Post, Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor is not ruling out invoking the Emergency Regulations Ordinance for the first time in half a century.

by Steve Watson, InfoWars:

Innocent people being held prisoner for days

A report in the South China Morning Post Monday claimed that the Hong Kong police in cracking down on demonstrations are grabbing innocent bystanders and arresting them without due process.

The report notes that the police are accusing people who are there to document the events, or even just observing, of participating in “unlawful assemblies.”

SILICON VALLEY IN CALIFORNIA IS BUILDING A CHINESE-STYLE ‘SOCIAL CREDIT SYSTEM’ THAT GROWS LARGER AND STRONGER WITH EVERY APP YOU DOWNLOAD AND USE

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Many Westerners are disturbed by what they read about China’s social credit system. But such systems, it turns out, are not unique to China. A parallel system is developing in the United States, in part as the result of Silicon Valley and technology-industry user policies, and in part by surveillance of social media activity by private companies. Here are some of the elements of America’s growing social credit system.

Fast Company: Silicon Valley Is Building a Communist-style ‘Social Credit’ System

by Allum Bokhari, Breitbart:

Fast Company has caught on to what Breitbart News has been highlighting for some time: that the Big Tech Masters of the Universe are developing systems to monitor and regulate personal behavior that closely resemble China’s totalitarian “social credit” system.

The “social credit” system assigns all Chinese citizens a “social credit score.” A citizen’s score drops if he engages in a range of disfavored activities, ranging from littering to supporting political dissidents.

WATCH: Cops Illegally Invade Family’s Home, Choke Innocent Child Who Was Home Alone

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Carpentersville, IL — A family is suing and will undoubtedly win after extremely infuriating video captured two police officers illegally entering their home and choking a 16-year-old boy who was home alone.

Unsettling Study Names American Police as 6th Leading Cause of Death for Young Men

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

A rather shocking study published this month by the Proceedings of the National Academy of the Sciences, names police officers as the sixth leading cause of death among young men. Police killings were only preceded in frequency by accidental death, a category that includes drug overdoses and car accidents, at 76.6 deaths per 100,000, followed by suicide (26.7), other homicides (22.0), heart disease (7.0), and cancer (6.3). These killings by police include shooting, choking, beating, and various other ways police have taken the lives of Americans.

A Maryland cop lost it and attacked an innocent man for filming him behind the counter at McDonald’s allegedly stealing a smoothie.

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

District Heights, MD — A rather disturbing video was shared with the Free Thought Project this week showing a District Heights police officer assault a man for filming him. According to witnesses, the officer was stealing a McDonald’s Smoothie and became angry when a man filmed him in the act.

A cop who held a gun to a motorists head during a road rage incident, and then got caught lying to investigators about it, was just given back his job and back pay.

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Pittsburgh, PA — As the Free Thought Project reports—on a regular basis—police officers are caught in fits of road rage all the time. While road rage is an unfortunate reality in America, when a police officer is involved, the situation becomes far more dangerous as they have authority, and they have a gun. All too often police officers will be caught road raging on innocent citizens and it is the citizen who suffers. And, as the following incident below highlights, because the offender wears a badge and a gun, they are almost never held accountable.

An innocent family has filed a lawsuit after they say police came to their home, ordered them out at gunpoint, made them get on their knees and then shot their dogs.

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Tinton Falls, NJ — Roberton Fullerton and his daughter Bobbi Rene Fullerton had committed no crime, had harmed no one, and were in their own home when police officers came to the door, ordered them to their knees at gunpoint and shot their two dogs. While apologists continue to claim “if you do nothing wrong, you have nothing to worry about,” this case — like so many others before it — proves them entirely wrong. Now the taxpayers of Tinton Falls will be held liable for the officers’ actions in the form of a lawsuit.
