NIJ Looks at New Surveillance and Population Control Tech for 2010

In Uncategorized on January 27, 2010 at 11:02 am

Let’s see what new Surveillance and Population Control goodies Law Enforcement will soon have to keep all of us safe and sound.


In FY 2010, priority will be given to research that focuses on the following needs:

  • General improvements to the “front end” of the forensic DNA analysis process.
  • Physical separation of the components of a mixture.
  • Identification and characterization of biological marker systems that have the potential to reveal additional or more powerful information about the source of the biological evidence.
  • Improved tools for examining aged, degraded, limited, damaged, inhibited, or otherwise compromised DNA evidence.
  • Novel methods for genetic profiling.
  • Identification and characterization of genetic marker systems that have the potential to advance the tools available for forensic pathology examinations.
  • Development of new or enhancement of current forensic databases for use in estimating frequencies of DNA (or other genetic marker) profiles.

Program Description
Forensic science, particularly in the area of DNA, has experienced numerous advances over the past decade. Improvements in science and technology have increased capabilities to use DNA in terms of the amount of evidence needed to obtain DNA, the speed of DNA processing, and the range of crimes DNA can help solve. NIJ will fund research that examines the impact of these forensic advances on the criminal justice system. This solicitation will also examine the impact of changes in policies to adapt to the more widespread use of DNA.

 

Government taking newborn DNA samples

Many ask why they are saving the samples. .. Beginning in 2002, the State began saving the leftover specimens, unbeknownst to parents and without their consent.

“It made me really mad that nobody asked me if they could keep my sons DNA,” said Andrea Beleno.Her son’s DNA was among millions of banked samples stored at Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Rural Public Health.

“It makes me suspicious and I think there’s really no reason for the state to have a database of the blood of and the DNA of every single person who has been born here,” said Beleno. “There’s no legitimate reason for that.” http://www.kxan.com/dpp/health/government-taking-newborn-dna-samples

It began with convicted “sex offenders” then to felons, to those arrested (not convicted) for felonies, now misdemeanors are being included in the CODIS DNA Database and pretty soon it will be any arrest.

In London Bus Drivers have “spit kits” to collect the saliva of the dreaded spitters.

Now London bus drivers will also be carrying DNA spit kits. Subway stations (aka the London Underground and the Tube) already have them and Transport for London claims that 7 out of 10 samples submitted match a DNA profile in the national database. It’s part of a plan to curb “anti-social behaviour”

What is with the Brits? Anti-social behavior? Ludicrous! Blame it on the Intelligence Led Policing method they employ over there. Intelligence Led Policing believes in social engineering, pervasive surveillance and preemptive strategies to control those that might be even thinking of . . . Acting naughty.

Surprise America! We have adopted the same unproved, liberty killing, paternal police state methodologies. Intelligence Led Policing is policy in the USA. Notice anything different lately?

UK-Arrests are being made ‘to expand DNA files’

Police are routinely arresting people simply to record their DNA profiles on the national database, according to a report published today.

It also states that three quarters of young black men are on the database.

. . . Jonathan Montgomery, commission chairman, said that “function creep” over the years had transformed a database of offenders into one of suspects. Almost one million innocent people are now on the DNA database. November 24, 2009

Bush Signs Bill To Take All Newborns’ DNA


Last week President Bush signed into law a bill S. 1858, known as The Newborn Screening Saves Lives Act of 2007 which will allow the federal government to begin to screen the DNA of all newborn babies in the U.S. within six months. This is a move by the government to initiate the establishment of a national DNA database.

INSANITY IS GLOBAL

 

 

Lockheed wins $1 billion FBI biometric contract

February 13, 2008

FBI awards Lockheed Martin a 10-year contract to design, develop, test, and deploy a next-generation biometrics-based identification system

http://www.infoworld.com/d/security-central/lockheed-wins-1-billion-fbi-biometric-contract-368

 


 


I mean, California Vision 2015



 

California wants to get biometrics from persons that are “deemed a threat to public safety” into the FBI Database. What for? Deemed a threat by who? Do “spitters” count?

 

You are on your own for the rest. . .

Program Contact Joseph Cecconi, (202) 305-7959, Joseph.Cecconi@usdoj.gov
Program Description
NIJ will fund research and development of technology to help state and local law enforcement agencies better manage high speed vehicular pursuits. Vehicular pursuits represent a significant challenge for law enforcement agencies, in part because safe and effective vehicle immobilizing technology tools are not commercially available, and because pursuit outcomes may involve property damage, human injury and loss of life, and potential liability.

Program Description
NIJ will fund research, development, testing, and evaluation initiatives that address the sensor and surveillance technology needs of state and local law enforcement and other collaborating agencies. Additionally, NIJ will support—for uses with the law enforcement environment—application of new technologies not developed specifically for law enforcement and corrections application.
