Exclamation Beware the Talking Lamp Posts!

Many cities in the US are installing new high tech lamposts with cameras and cellphone technology to allow communication between Big Brother and You!

Isn't that exciting?

These lamposts will bark commands at people on the street. They can issue alerts, capture images, listen in on conversations, zoom in and read text messages and linked up with databases can probably identify people.

Check out the video!


As we first reported last year, high tech street lights with “homeland security applications” are now being installed in major U.S. cities.
The street lights also have loudspeakers that can give audible warnings to individuals, mimicking the talking surveillance cameras in the UK that shout out orders through microphones telling people to pick up litter or leave the area.
A recent press release put out by Amerlux announces the company’s partnership with Illuminating Concepts to further advance the rollout of ‘Intellistreets’. The announcement confirms that the street lights will have a number of “homeland security features” including a loudspeaker system that will be used to “engage captive audiences”.
Love the last line..."engage captive audiences".

Just More Fear/WarMongering Profiteering.

Homeland Security = Big $$$$$

It seems to be the only growing industry in the US presently.

I've been looking forward to having a decent convo with a govt. representative. Maybe the lamppost is my best bet.
