Lying Media Bastards

Wings of Freedom

The people of Los Angeles can sleep ever more snugly in their beds, knowing that the LAPD is now equipped with flying robotic camera drones to monitor the city.

The money quote:

Commander Heal is quick to point out that it is not their intention to launch ‘big brother’ style surveillance operations.

“There’s no place in an urban environment that you can go to right now that you’re not being looked at with a video camera and you have nothing to fear from your own government - you are being watched by your fellow citizens,” he says.

See, the spy-planes aren’t the first step of making the country a police state! We’ve been a police state for years! Now quit yer bitchin and take your soma.

If Los Angeleans want to keep their privacy, maybe they’ve got to work on increasing the smog.

  3. we’ve got lots of new cameras here in Tijuana, you know ..cause we’re so violent and need to be protected from ourselves.

    the worst part is that no one even notices them!!!
    i’ve asked people about the cameras and i get blank stares..
    some of the people even think that is good that we have cameras now.

  4. I feel sorry for you. At my school, there are 12 cameras watching over us. Those cameras were donated by the American Embassy
