WEB Notes: The fascist governments of the past would have died for this technology and even more so, they would have been extremely appreciative to the people, for the people allowing this to happen in their cities. This is not freedom and this is not about stopping crime. Enforce the laws on the books and watch the crime fall. Stop removing our 2nd Amendment rights and watch crime fall. When government has an idea it usually involves the loss of your money and freedom. This is not anti-government speak, it is the truth. There is nothing wrong with a government that is truly, “of the people, by the people and for the people”. Unfortunately, those days are long gone.
Are those lamps on your local streets detecting when guns are fired? American cities are being upgraded to pinpoint shooters and help police fight gun violence.
Like something out of the futuristic policing TV show “APB,” new tech can locate the exact position where a gun is fired and report it immediately to law enforcement.
Called ShotSpotter, this is a tool that can be used by officials to respond even faster to the aid of gun violence victims — minutes can be the difference between life and death. And it provides police with far more information in advance.
