Hikvision Government Parent Building Pre-Crime System

By: John Honovich, Published on Mar 15, 2016

No one builds mega surveillance systems like the Chinese government. While American large cities may boast tens of thousands of cameras, Chinese ones with hundreds of thousands are average.

And when it comes to privacy, China makes the US CIA look like Noway.

Now, news of a pre-crime system in China is making waves. Most interestingly is the connection of the Chinese government contractor and Hikvision.

"Only Wu, the engineer at China Electronics Technology, would speak on the record."

Pretty sure that "Wu, the engineer" can update his title to "Wu, the former engineer", or even "the former Wu". :(

At a recent funeral in China the family stated the cause of death was "running mouth" which may translate poorly.

The 'Wu Fan Clan' is going to be a pretty small group....

In a country will a low ratio of crime this can only be for controlling the masses and or a precursor to war.
