At this rate, the US government is going to finish Half-Life 3 before Valve does.

Wait, there's a HL 3 coming!?! Man to relive junior high video gaming....

Funny, it seems little more than a year ago that a US drone strike murdered seven innocent children and one adult in an embarassing case of mistaken identity.

Oh look, it was.

Article is paywalled but I’m going to make a funky guess and say that:

  • all people killed were brown
  • all vicrims were absolutely innocent
  • there were absolutely no consequences for anyone involved in the attack.

Well at least they won’t drone-bomb citizens, and I’m sure our top legal minds have firmly rejected the possibility!

What’s that? Both Obama and Trump killed citizens abroad sans trial (in absentia or otherwise), and Eric Holder refusing to rule out the idea is as much public debate as the notion got? Well at least we aren’t just recycling the same political whores who’ve been active in the government since the Nixon era, and the problem should fix itself.

I'll be happy if they finished the HL2 episodes.

We are proud to say that our country has all the liberty and freedoms you want, all for the purpose of being spied on and having the accusatory finger pointed at you for whatever reason they deem necessary. This is security you can count on to put you away for good. Why, I feel safe already.

law enforcement probably have facial recognition drones too, they already use these two tech separately.


DavidBrooker t1_jadl3lt wrote

Law enforcement have to scrimp and save, so they have to settle for facial recognition through CCTV instead.


rwwl t1_jabcavk wrote

Isn't most facial recognition software still trained on too many white faces and terrible at correctly identifying non-whites? If so... ugh, this is even worse than it seems.

If it's specifically for spec ops and people on a specific shit list, it's probably not being used to identify your average yoghurt joe

Wait till the news drops about how all the FPS-games helped train the drones. It’s like an Uzi with a sniper-scope.

So we need to walk around armed with anti drone weapons now? Just another new normal.

Hong Kong protests prove that particle lasers conjoined with other people with high beam hand held lasers are effective at dripping drones out the sky

I’m creeping closer to “It is every citizen’s duty to carry a baseball bat and smash any drone they come across.”

They put a slamhound on my tail in New Dehli, slotted it to my pheromones and the color of my hair. It caught up with me on a street called Chandri Chauk and came scrambling for my rented BMW through a forest of bare brown legs and pedicab tires. It's core was a kilogram of recrystallized hexegene and flaked TNT. I didn't see it coming.

I mean, this is not fun, but don't we give away our biometrics, facial recognition, voice recognitions, etc., with our smart phones on a daily basis? I'm sure the government has access to most of this information on a whim if they really need it.

Whenever I walk around downtown Madison wi at night the police have used drones to follow my movements many times. Lolol I don’t care tho, I jus keep doin my thang. It’s amazing what too much time and money can do to bored people with badges… I saw a drone following my movements during the BLM protests in Madison WI, and multiple times on other occasions. I actually first saw a drone in 2006 in Colorado at the National Rainbow gathering. That was far out. I thought it was a UFO in the distance but could zero in on it and see it was a drone. I have 20/13 vision so I could see it moving over the tree line from what seemed like over 2 miles away… anyone whose ever participated in as much civil disobedience actions as I have know that drones are the norm. They have been in use against civilian dissidents for a decade plus. Nothing new to anyone that has experienced the subjugation of the state apparatus… lololol

Just remember that once you sift through the pearl clutching these announcements are always accompanied by, the slippery slopes to Terminator never do appear.
