Bloomberg is no threat to anyone's freedom, you idiots.

The Domain Awareness System, nicknamed "the dashboard," was developed by Microsoft for the NYPD -- a three-year project that cost up to $40 million.  It centralizes and synthesizes mountains of data and footage: street maps, feeds from more than 4,000 existing security cameras, 911 alerts,  arrest records, parking tickets and even radiation detectors. Officials showed how hundreds of scanners that read license plates can spot a vehicle that's just been put on a watch list and how smart cameras fueled by artificial intelligence can flag a bag that's been left unattended too long. Cops are looking for a suspect in a red shirt? No problem -- the cameras can highlight anyone in that color in a crowd.  NBCNEWS

 "We’ve made major investments in camera technology – notwithstanding the objections of some special interests,"
  "What you're seeing is what the private sector has used for a long time. If you walk around with a cell phone, the cell phone company knows where you are…We're not your mom and pop's police department anymore."
"You wait, in five years, the technology is getting better, they’ll be cameras everyplace ... Get Used To It!
"I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom."

At this moment the entire group of people broke into a deep, slow, rhythmic chant of 'B-B! .... B-B! .... B-B!'—over and over again, very slowly, with a long pause between the first 'B' and the second—a heavy murmurous sound, somehow curiously savage, in the background of which one seemed to hear the stamps of naked feet and the throbbing of tom-toms. For perhaps as much as thirty seconds they kept it up. It was a refrain that was often heard in moments of overwhelming emotion. Partly it was a sort of hymn to the wisdom and majesty of Bloomberg, but still more it was an act of self-hypnosis, a deliberate drowning of consciousness by means of rhythmic noise.  ~Mostly George Orwell 


I hope none of you 'Special Interests' have any objections.

The interest from the United States has come from smaller municipalities, from sheriff’s departments, and police chiefs from several major cities,” said Dave Mosher,  Microsoft vice president in charge of program management.
...Whether you like it or not!
