CCTV cameras which can ‘predict’ if a crime is about to take place are being introduced on Britain’s streets.
The cameras can alert operators to suspicious behaviour, such as loitering and unusually slow walking. Anyone spotted could then have to explain their behaviour to a police officer.
The move has been compared to the Tom Cruise science-fiction film Minority Report, in which people are arrested before they commit planned offences.
You got to be shitting me… I can´t even walk slow and just hang around any more, what the fuck is wrong with people any way…
And the “suspicious behaviour” is so wage that it can fit anything they want it to be.
It will also fuel fears that Britain is becoming a surveillance society. There are already 4.2million cameras trained on the public. The technology could be used alongside many of these to allow evermore advanced scrutiny of our movements.
Is becoming… Britain is a surveillance society and has been for a couple of years now, George Orwell is probably creating a massive earthquake from all the turning he is doing..
‘But what it cannot do is say whether a guy is waiting for his girlfriend or about to commit a crime. That is for the operator to make a subjective human decision on.’
Oh yeah because humans can´t make mistakes can they?
This is really pissing me off and now my mind is settled If I travel to the UK I´m going to avoid all large towns, I might not go at all any more it´s to crazy for my taste.
