Calling Mr Orwell…
9/11, Security Camera Networks…AKA…CCTV, Surveillance Drones.
I never would have thought it was possible but while I slept…

The war on illegal guns is going high-tech.
NYPD cops, without stepping out of their vehicles, may soon be able to detect if someone is packing heat — using technology that could greatly reduce the number of stop-and-frisk searches.
The Defense Department is helping the NYPD develop the technology, which detects and distinguishes heat and other radiation emanating from people and objects they are carrying — including guns and explosives, said NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly.
The technology has proven effective from 15 feet away, although police hope to expand its range to 75 feet.
