RED SPOTLIGHTS TARGET 'SUSPECTS' ON NEW JERSEY STREETS

In a report of the rising prevalence of high-tech big brother surveillance gadgets being used by police forces around the country, the Associated Press reports that East Orange, New Jersey plans to cut crime by highlighting suspects with a red-beamed spotlight– before any crime is committed.
They call it a “pre-crime” deterrent to be mounted on nearby street lights or other fixtures. Along with this they proudly show how police track every license plate they drive by, and how they can access cameras in virtually any part of the city.
They of course use the pretext that this is all to prevent crime. They start these intrusive surveillance methods in crime ridden cities, and then suddenly they're everywhere. Even in suburbs with no serious crime problem.
Just as they use the "terror" threat to justify groping six year olds and grandmothers at bus stations and at the airport, they use crime to excuse this outrageous infringement on liberty.
The speed at which the high tech police state is growing should make anyone shudder.
