ACLU Fooled by Vendor PropagandaBy: John Honovich, Published on Feb 07, 2011
The ACLU's surveillance concerns are based on technology that does not work in the real world. Ironically, the ACLU is indirectly promoting technology that surveillance professionals know is little more than smoke and mirrors. The ACLU would be more accurate and helpful attacking the ineffectiveness of this technology and the wasted money spent on it.
Specifically, the ACLU's report charges that 3 technologies used in public surveillance are invasive:
- PTZ Cameras
- Facial Recognition
- Automatic Tracking of Objects Across Cameras
