CCTV to"Predict" Crime


What the fuck?

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.


For the love of fucking Jesus!


Today, I wake up to find that opposition MP’s are being arrested and their DNA extracted and CCTV cameras are sending the Police to question us over crimes we haven’t yet commited.


Ladies, Gentlemen, Transgenders.


We are getting close to tipping point. Anyone else up for a march on Parliament?

I only wrote a book, a story. Not a fucking instruction manual.

Would march with you old bean :)

As soon as...

So that's our new politicised Police rendered *completely* ineffective then. They'll be too busy running around at the behest of semi-trained civilian snoop-cam operators to actually catch criminals any more.

Landed Underclass has an idea for culture-jamming these things if they ever come into effect*.

* "If" he says. Hah! They're probably just new software modded onto the existing camera network feeds.

When? It will be a pleasure.JD.

The last walk was such fun that I'd certainly be up for a bit of a march.

There is nothing stopping suitably attired people having a regular presence around the areas in question. Take appropriate clothing when going for a stroll there at any time.

I suggest that the best place for these cameras would be in the Commons, trained on the Government front bench.

But on a more serious note, I support wholeheartedly the attempt by this Government to criminalise the whole of the UK population.

Who is the criminal?

Story in yesterday's telegraph http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/politics/lawandorder/3526800/Police-have-no-rights-to-block-peaceful-protests-according-to-landmark-ruling.html

If you make your Nov 5th march a regular peaceful protest then police permission is not required. (I know it wasn't a protest march, it was gentle stroll to a guy fawkes dinner, but it's similar)

Name the day, OH

"We are getting close to tipping point."

We are but it wasn't a talking point at the pub last night.

For most the tipping point won't be reached until the stella tokens don't drop on the doorstep or the wrong person wins strictlyxfactorupthjungle.

It might be nice to get a bit of fresh air though...

a march ?....make it quick, before the fuckers get their tasers, i think I would prefer a good old fashioned swipe with a baton for peacefully walking then being tased.

Just name the day. Chandos?

Wednesday again would be appreciated... Or a weekend...

Sorry to inform you, but these cameras (or rather the software behind them) is already in use and has been for some time!

John is right, California I think is one place where they ahve been testing for quite some time...

Here's a judgment which might be worth wading through:

Kay v Metropolitan Police

The Head of Legal has a short and useful commentary.

The judgment attempts to clarify: When is a procession not a procession and which part of the law, if any, applies to it?

For those of you who are planning on moving abroad, here's my thoughts on some of the countries I have visited recently. And before I get started WHAT THE FUCK is a notice in Urdu doing at Manchester Airport? They don't want the hordes coming in from Karachi and Islamabad to forget their drugs or something? The most depressing experience I've had in a long time. And it was -1℃ outside. Absolute fuckbubbles.

Canada: don't choose the Toronto / Ontario area at least as I can see them following a not dissimilar path to the UK. Plus they're quite socialist and booze is very expensive. If you visit what they preposterously call a pub (that only serves piss on tap and piss in bottles) and have more than three beers you're treated like a leper. OK for a holiday but I wouldn't want to live there.

Denmark: a fine country with a proper liberal tradition. CCTV is quite limited and people are allowed to think for themselves. Really friendly people - this country reminds me of what Britain used to be like. Oh yeah and the police actually do their job in shirts without threatening people. I never saw anyone harassed for toting a camera. There's loads of booze available there. Downsides include the weather (the same, if not cooler, than the UK), the expense of pretty much everything and the hassle of dealing with Danish bureaucracy. More people speak English (and better) in Denmark than in England these days. They have their problems with the Muslims but they don't roll over like we do. Go visit.

Malta: Niceish place (dusty though), English-speaking population (and government), long time and continuing British influence. Beer is slightly cheaper than at home, people are friendly and the weather is excellent. Very hot in summer though. Some CCTV and they have ID cards but not many really. They have a problem with African immigrants at the moment due to being in the EU.

Madeira (Portugal): I've just tonight come back from there and this has to be my favourite. Not everyone can speak English in the villages but when they're as friendly as they are I don't think it's too much of a problem. Excellent food, cheap grog and a population that ignores petty rules and simply does what it chooses. The locals drink like fishes and smoke like chimneys - anywhere, anytime. Granted, there's not much to do outside Funchal but flights to Continental Portugal and Brazil can be had for those wanting a break. Oh yeah, and CCTV is mainly used in businesses and isn't absolutely everywhere. They have ID cards but not to the same extent as those proposed for the UK.

Spain: The people have a supine authoritarian quality to them and keep wanting to pinch other people's land and many parts of it are over-commercialised but there are still some nice places. Avoid the Costa del Sol at all costs - horrid place. Cost of living isn't that cheap any more either. Huge crash in the market for things.

Sweden: Oppressive. Grey. Authoritarian. Socialist. Bit like England really. Only they speak Swedish. Very expensive, worse drink problem than the British, problems with Muslim immigrants and the State has control of all the booze. Nice totty though. But go to Denmark instead for that.

I think that covers most things.

Pretty creepy.

Huxley, not Orwell is the better model, however. We are willingly walking into the distopian state, not having it forced onto us by pre-existent totalitarians.
