In a glowing review of the rising prevalence of high-tech big brother surveillance gadgets in police force use, the Associated Press reports that East Orange, New Jersey plans to cut crime by highlighting suspects with a red-beamed spotlight– before any crime is committed– a “pre-crime” deterrent to be mounted on nearby street lights or other fixtures.
Some government lackey somewhere in a secluded room watching a bunch of TV monitors decides that he/she has spotted someone who is "acting" suspicious, so they point a "criminally branded red color" at the suspect, bathing them with this criminally branded red color, to complete what they love to call "the circle of premptive suspicion".
To East Orange, New Jersey government and police officials, everyone has become a“pre-crime” suspect until proven innocent.
What the hell is "premptive suspicion"? Or a "pre-crime" suspect"? Nothing more than fancy phrases from those in favor of a total police state, where the citizen has no rights or protections at all.
And to think we have been fretting over racial profiling, while all the time our police - with the governments blessing - have been setting up this kind of total monitoring and spying.
How out of control is this already?
From the article:
A MIAC Missouri law enforcement memo, as well as similar documents released from the Department of Homeland Security, have made clear that returning veterans and supporters of third party political candidates and many other groups are not only considered “domestic extremists,” but have been put on law enforcement watch lists as well as anti-terrorism databases.
Returning veterans are now considered as potential or probable enemies of the State by officials at the Department of Homeland Security.
This is all part of the "change" the Marxist Obama promised when he boasted he would totally transform America.
If we don't get off our butts and start supporting our Constitutional rights as citizens, America will soon make Nazi Germany look like small potatoes by comparison, and Hitler as a knee jerk amateur.

And then imagine yourself - sometime in the near future - walking down a city street somewhere and suddenly you are bathed in a criminally red spotlight... to the sound of fast approaching police crusiers, while other nearby citizens run from you in fear and panic.
Go team Obama!
