It seems like almost everywhere I go I see surveillance cameras. They show up in the strangest places even on back roads in the backcountry. Cameras are mounted on telephone poles temporarily to watch for potential arsonists. They move them around to cover areas in which they are having suspicious fires.
Cameras are located all over in the cities, mounted on stores, overpasses, light poles and many other locations. You never know who or what are monitoring the cameras. The reason I say what is explained in the following paragraph, sent me by a friend.
“Increasingly, smart surveillance cameras are monitoring public places in search of suspicious cues, a high-tech version of “if you see something, say something.” By reviewing massive volumes of ordinary surveillance tape, algorithms can “learn” what type of behavior is typical right before a crime or terrorist attack is committed – like a person suddenly breaking into a run or abandoning a suitcase on a subway platform – and alert authorities. Esther Hovers, a photographer, captures some examples of the seemingly deviant behavior that these cameras pick up in a photo exhibition called “False Positives.” These photographs, which Hovers took in Brussels, the de facto capital of Europe, are montages, partially natural and partially staged, which Hovers created by combining images from several minutes of video… (To readers develop a better sense of what some call situational awareness, I have long encouraged them to take note of those things that depart from normal patterns. I found this article to be a good exercise for such recognition.)”
Take a look at the pictures in the attached link and see if you can spot what the government considers suspicious behavior. You will be surprised. I have included two links, because some of you may have a problem with the one from the Washington Post.
Now that you have an idea of what the government is looking for, you now have more information that will help you to avoid the government’s radar and stay a grey man.
