Protestors had their cell phones tracked by NYPD via technologies like Crossbow/Stingray and other dirtboxes such as described here:
The unreal lack of oversight of the NYPD is something the city has been trying to correct since the days of Mayor Dinkins…
外围体育投注Advanced surveillance tech used daily that we know about includes facial recognition, shot spotter, Crossbow, etc. There is of course so much more that we don’t know about due to the NYPD's systemic lack of transparency. The New York City Council voted in favor of requiring the NYPD to disclose use of their technology 44-6 in mid-June. We have waited long enough. Message Mayor DeBlasio and ask him to sign the POST Act into law today:
外围体育投注Police unions are demanding a carve out in the so they can hide what undercover officers are up to- the unions think that the public should continue to have no knowledge regarding technology that undercover officers use daily. Police unions think that this base level of disclosure would make it harder to be an undercover officer. This is not a bad thing, there must be disclosure in order for us to begin to reshape the systemic racism present throughout the NYPD. Undercover investigations, like all NYPD activity, continue to disproportionately wrong people of color under the status quo. How can we expect to hold these undercover operations accountable for the changes we demand if they are able to shield themselves completely from public oversight?
外围体育投注We cannot accept the proposed carve out, it would give the NYPD the ability to declare anything they wish to keep secret to be part of “undercover” operation.
The NYPD disbanded a team of 600 plainclothes officers because the public was starting to get the slightest whiff of what they were up to, the top brass must be shaking in their boots imagining what the public would think if we could smell what their undercover operations were cooking...
外围体育投注I've seen activists post videos from the border that show fairly large tent camps that are empty, but still fully staffed. In some of the activist videos you can hear music as if there's some kind of party going on beyond the barriers. What exactly are they doing with the tent camps that are empty? Staying prepared to separate more families? If they aren't allowed to separate families and they're turning away asylum seekers, why haven't these camps been dismantled instead of keeping them staffed?
