US Authorities Publicly Admit To Clandestine Spying On Innocent Citizens

// Last updated on //

There are rights we believe we possess in the United States that are violated each and every day. Many have to do with our assumption we have a right to privacy. We warn you, the video we reference at the end of this article is disturbing. If you do not want to know the extent to which they can violate your privacy, do not watch it. This is a news article from the Wall Street Journal, not some random internet blog. This is quite real and very disturbing.

There are many new technologies that make it easy to violate our privacy. And it isn’t just the brilliant hacker or computer geek that has access to these spying techniques. A total moron can purchase them and use them. Any criminal, any bad cop, a pervert, anyone.

The authorities claim they will not misuse the information they gather, but not only good cops will have access to the information. Police agencies are rife with untrained and uneducated officers. If you do not believe there are also many bad police officers, a simple search on Youtube will provide you clear evidence of how badly some police misuse their authority. Even if you believe that is only a small percentage, say one out of ten, the implications are horrifying.

Police forces across the nation have been caught red handed spying on innocent law abiding citizens. It is only when they are captured by the media that they admit they are using a technology to spy on you. You can be certain that many more will be exposed going forward than the one you are about to see exposed in this video.

    I believe It is illegal to spy on your own people in the U.K and the U.S…….it is alledged they do is have an agreement with each other for the U.S. to spy on us and we to spy on them….then just swap the information. Quite sinister really.

      It is not Illegal in the USA to place cameras for security in and looking at public spaces. Quite honestly all they are doing it is no different than the security cameras you see in stores to help prevent theft or on traffic lights to catch people who run a red light. Stop over reacting people.

    Our right to privacy should be respected. But, such right should give way to the more superior national security of the state. Let’s just hope and pray that the government would use their toys in the right way.

    this is OLD news to people that already knew better and do their own investigating. They have been spying on people for MANY decades. and they spy with more than just your phone calls and emails. your COMPUTER IS SPYWARE itself. they can more than likely hear everything you say in presence of your computer and other electronic devices.

    So when do the citizens of this country figure out that their under assault? When do they stop paying taxes to their corrupt government? When do they stop rolling over for the “authorities” and begin to take back their country?

    “One commercial company he claims to have participated in the program is AT&T (T),…” You can add Google and Facebook, they’ve been openly collecting user data for the government at least the last five years.

    People are only going to wake up to the reality of the police state when it becomes unbearable and even more oppressive – this is all in its infancy. Its every citizens RIGHT and DUTY to curb the power of government in a democracy. They work for US, and should fear US, not we working and fearing them!!!

    Living in the most CCTV infested country in the universe I reckon our lords and masters are doing the same. Gives every little nobody with the slightest bit of power in government or your local council an opportunity to abuse it. And they had the cheek to flash up the word FREEDOM at the closing ceremony last night. What a joke!

    Who cares if they spy on me, tap my phone or gps my location. The poor sap stuck with monitoring me will surely die of boredom. Grandmother always said “live your life as though someone were always watching.” Good words to live by, unless your up to no good.

    The ‘If you aren’t doing anything wrong you have nothing to worry about’ arguments sound pretty similar to the Nazi arguments for privacy invasion. And it seems the criteria for “doing wrong” these days has pretty wide parameters ie ‘pointing at cameras’.

    Sounds like that TV show ” Person of Interest” on CBS. They probably already have that computer up and running that hears and sees everything using all survailiance cameras, public and private. And cell phones. Hell, its watching what I type right now.

    Time to move to France. Where the government and police are afraid of the people. In the police state called the USA, the people are afraid of the government.

    I am not at all surprised at this revelation ! However, I am further convinced that there is more to it than what info has been released. This is the Technology-age and it was destined to occur. What is done with all that data is what I would like to know.

    When hasn’t the government spied on its own people? Today they just have much fancier toys to do it with.

    F**k all US voters for voting for Bush in 2004, and for voting for Obama in 2008. Most US voters are guilty for this capitalist system of exploitation and oppression against the people of this world

    Time to rise up people take back the country. Hang all politicians or use public firing squads. Then rebuild just like our forefathers. This country needs to be broken apart to rebuild.

    It’s a shame that our own country would do this to us. Who is in charge of all this? They are wasting millions of tax payers dollars to have the entire lives of soccer moms and good American citizens stored away just because they can. I bet Yahoo is right up there with AT&T

    nothing surprising here; this has been talked up for several years; now in the open. all this data will be used to incarcerate people without habeus corpus rights. it is gulag time in the U.S.
