H-e-l-l-o! Sometimes we don't activate our equipment to go 2 blocks in order to back up another car that is on a traffic stop! If the intersection is clear and traffic is light, then where is our discretion?!?!?!! I don't know where our discretion is but, I'll tell you where it is going - right out the fucking window!
They are already loading up some cars with GPS tracking and surveillance (audio and video) hardware. They claim it is for 'officer safety' but really it is to see where you are at all times and how many times during the tour you utter an ethnic slur. That way it makes it easier to weed out the 'bad' cops - see how it works?
Ignorance is strength, Freedom is slavery and War is Peace.
|V.H. Blackinton & Co. Inc. has developed a badge for law enforcement and government agencies with an embedded radio frequency identification (RFID) chip it plans to launch in August, company officials said Friday.|
The SmartShield system validates badges and verifies the wearer. The package comprises Blackinton metal badges equipped with RFID chips, and Enforcement Identification (Eid) software that tracks information on each badge in a departments inventory.
RINF has the link and the full story.
You better stock up on tin foil. I hear it's the only thing that will defeat the RFID chip. Save some foil for your head too.
