DHS Admits to ‘Behavioral Detection’ Video Surveillance Program at Airports

1-homeland security - logo of The current surveillance state has reached a place where it is beginning to resemble the 2002 film Minority Report. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is now attempting to predict crime by doing behavioral analysis of crowds at airports via video surveillance. The program is in the experimental stages and is being conducted using “trained actors posing as passengers, as well as members of the traveling public” according to the 14-page report published online by DHS earlier this month. The report, which The New American has studied in its entirety, is startling not just in its audacity, but also in its premise. In the beginning of the “war on terror,” which was launched in the wake of 9/11, few would have believed that in a decade and a half the American public would have become so desensitized to blanket surveillance that such a program could ever happen in the open. http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/item/21088-dhs-admits-to-behavioral-detection-video-surveillance-program-at-airports?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_campaign=11b8646f4f-The_Editors_Top_Picks_3_12_143_12_2014&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_8ca494f2d2-11b8646f4f-289795749
