Government Links Social Media, Smartphones and Police in a Stasi Web of Surveillance

Twitter has released a report confirming that the US government leads
the world in requesting information on their citizens. The Transparency Report shows the US government has made requests that are infringing on American privacy rights. Twitter states
that “we’ve received more government requests in the first half of
2012, as outlined in this initial dataset, than in the entirety of
2011.”

As the US government sifts through the tweets US citizens are making
and analyzing information from illegal means, there are decisions about
particular citizens being made to justify the construction of an
all-encompassing Big Brother network.

Cloud computing is also under surveillance as every conversation is
recording and filed. While Microsoft denies this is true, the adherence
to their rules and regulations explains that all your personal
information is stored within Skype. In section 2 of their user contract explains:
“Our primary purpose in collecting information is to provide you with a
safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. Skype collects and
uses, or has third party service providers acting on Skype’s behalf
collecting and using, personal data relating to you, as permitted or
necessary to . . .”

The Department of Homeland Security’s Delaware Information and Analysis Center (DIAC) “now offers a mobile app
to report suspicious activities in real-time by attaching a photo,
sending location information, or entering details about suspicious
vehicles or persons. In addition, users can choose to make their report
anonymously or can include contact information for follow-up by law
enforcement.”

The Anti-Terrorism Mobile FORCE 1-2 App
is designed for iPhone and Android users that create spies out of
average citizens for the sake of the State. The information collected by
users is funneled to a National Security Agency (NSA) Fusion Center to
be disseminated with federal agencies and local law enforcement.

Using terrorism and 9/11 phone calls as a fear-mongering campaign to
coerce the general public into participating in this new Stasi, the Delaware government
hopes to keep its citizens “ever vigilant in the fight against
terrorism and this new app is just one way for our citizens to help.”

Simultaneously, Symantec’s Norton Cybercrime Report
states that cybercrimes involving smartphones are costing consumers
$110 billion annually as these thieves peruse mobile devices and social
networks looking for loopholes.

Smartphones are sent fake bills which add to the telecommunications
services and rack-up charges as well as implant viruses into devices
through apps.

Infected phones infect other phones through sending of information,
text messages and emails. Nameless, faceless hackers change segments of
code and inject the malware into the smartphone. However, most mobile
phone and telecommunications corporations still maintain that mobile
applications are safe and there should be no precautions taken when
downloading these apps.

The CIA-sponsored AntiSec hacker group was successful in stealing
millions of ID numbers from Apple, Inc. from databases where the
corporation had been storing user personal data. They then leaked this
information out for the general public to see. However this action
serves another purpose.

The FBI was also infiltrated
by the same state-controlled hacker group wherein a laptop was
“compromised and private data regarding Apple UDIDs was exposed. At this
time, there is no evidence indicating that an FBI laptop was
compromised or that the FBI either sought or obtained this data.” The
bureau’s press office later posted on its Twitter account that it “never
had” the information in question and that the reports its laptop was
hacked were “totally false.”

While data mining, cell phone corporations are using mobile phone
habits to decipher the predictive movements of users. Scientists from
the University of Brimingham in the UK have revealed
that they can predict the movements of mobile phone users through
tracking the network usage in real time with algorithms that forecast
probabilities. This means that cell phone corporations, if using this
system could predict the future whereabouts of their customers at any
time of the day or night.

As our cell phone become weapons of mass surveillance, police
departments across the nation are installing more CCTV cameras to better
spy on citizens. In Maryland, local police have been using speed cameras at intersections to watch citizens under the guise of mitigating damages caused by car accidents.

Researchers for the Defense Department have created working prototypes
of bi-static radar that can utilize WiFi to spy on citizens through
walls. In tests, a one foot think brick wall was used and the monitoring
radar could send back visual data to be interpreted.

WiFi signals can be extended and are available virtually everywhere
which makes the capability of transmitting information easier with radio
signals and laptops.

With the siphoning of information from a wireless router,
surveillance software can be used as well to see through walls. A
person’s whereabouts can be correctly pinpointed by using WiFi signals
that bounce off objects which can decipher speed, location and direction
of an individual.

Justification for this technology is surmised
as: “See Through The Wall (STTW) technologies are of great interest to
law enforcement and military agencies; this particular device has the UK
Military of Defense exploring whether it might be used in ‘urban
warfare,’ for scanning buildings. Other more benign applications might
range from monitoring children to monitoring the elderly.”

These surveillance grids are being implemented to compliment the State and Local Anti-Terrorism Traning
(SLATT) program that defines for police departments what an extremist
is and how to “recognize and report indicators of terrorism/criminal
extremism.”

The SLATT’s definition of terrorism is vague and broad. It
encompasses “the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or
property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population,
or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social
objectives.” While terrorism is meant to intimidate and coerce a
population into submission, the local law enforcement is employed to
play an integral part in bringing intelligence to the federal agencies
and “international intelligence communities” involved with hindering
terrorism.

The SLATT explains that those who use cash, stay in tight-knit
groups, repeatedly use the word “God”, carry video or observation
equipment and have hand-drawn maps are terrorists. The document goes on
to explain that any type of surveillance that is not state-sponsored is
terroristic in nature and should be reported.
