A New Jersey police department recently implemented new technology that allows 911 operators in the area to stream live video from callers’ smartphones with the touch of a button.
While callers will still have to give their consent to such monitoring, some media outlets have dubbed the technology a slippery slope towards automatic surveillance, whereby Big Brother will one day have immediate access to people’s smartphones without their consent.
In the meantime, some police departments plan to utilize 911eye, as it’s called, a product of Capita Secure Solutions and Services, for permission-based surveillance during emergencies, which will allow first responders to see exactly what callers are seeing before they arrive.
According to reports, 911eye has the potential to turn any internet-capable device, including smartphones, into a remote-activated surveillance tool – which could have been the intent all along with the push to install cameras and microphones on the backs and fronts of virtually all smartphone devices.
The 911eye software was also developed in partnership with the West Midlands Fire Service in the United Kingdom, where the West Midland Police Department has already embraced a type of “pre-crime” unit in which potential offenders are identified by the system and flagged for possible “interventions” by law enforcement.
If you’ve ever seen the film Minority Report, you may already be familiar with the dystopian concept of “pre-crime,” which is basically the idea that someone could be on the verge of potentially committing a crime without actually having committed one.
The FBI is reportedly in the process of developing a similar tool to be implemented through social media, allowing surveillance assets the ability to detect “potential threats,” civil liberties be damned.

911eye isn’t the only product of its kind currently on the market. Another similar one known as Carbyne911 performs similar functions, and was actually funded by pedophile Jeffrey Epstein via the former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak.
Reports indicate that Carbyne911 has been marketed as “the solution to mass shootings,” allowing deep state spies to invade the personal privacy of American citizens in direct violation of the United States Constitution, and specifically the Fourth Amendment.
Peter Thiel, one of the billionaire co-founders of PayPal, is also an investor in this technology, with his Palantir corporation having been described as an entity that “us[es] war on terror tools to track American citizens.”
Perhaps not surprisingly, former Bush administration war hawk Michael Chertoff, one of the co-authors of the Patriot Act, served on the board of Palantir.
“At least two US counties have reportedly adopted Carbyne911, despite obvious privacy issues and basic human rights concerns,” Zero Hedge reports.
“Not to mention the fact that while most of its employees and personnel have military-intelligence connections, few have a background in emergency services, which should also alarm anyone who wants their freedom and privacy in a world where they have neither.”
As we long predicted, this is all headed in the direction of militarizing America’s local police forces, and turning them into extensions of the military that target ordinary American citizens as criminals until proven as non-criminals.
“Our towns and cities have become battlefields, and we the American people are now the enemy combatants to be spied on tracked, frisked, and searched,” Zero Hedge goes on to warn. “For those who resist, the consequences can be a one-way trip to jail or even death.”
