SPYING ON BUS RIDERS!
WE ALREADY KNEW DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY DOES NOT TRUST VETERANS BUT NOW WE FIND THEY WILL SPY ON LOCAL BUS RIDERS! ‘Big Sis’ Janet Napolitano Sec. Of Homeland Security is the realization of ‘Big Brother’ in George Orwell novel ‘1984'. Columbus Ohio is among those installing spy systems. And, Obama can’t think of any items to be cut from budget to stave off ‘fiscal cliff’. Transit authorities in cities across the country are quietly installing microphone-enabled surveillance systems on public buses that would give them the ability to record and store private conversations, according to documents obtained by a news outlet. San Francisco transit authorities recently approved a $5.9 million contract to install an audio surveillance system on 357 buses and vintage trolley cars, paid for in full with a grant from DHS. The contract includes the option to expand the equipment to an additional 600 vehicles. In Eugene, Oregon, the Daily found, transit officials requested microphones that would be capable of “distilling clear conversations from the background noise of other voices, wind, traffic, windshields wipers and engines” and also wanted at least five audio channels spread across each bus that would be “paired with one or more camera images and recorded synchronously with the video for simultaneous playback.”
