I’ve written numerous articles about how police use ‘junk science‘ to arrest people. ‘The war on terror’, and the ‘war on drugs’ also use junk science to justify illegal spying. Unfortunately, ‘hate crimes’ are no different. Alleged ‘hate crimes’ are being used as an excuse to let police spy on us in shocking new ways.
A Boston Police Department (BPD) proposal titled, “Acquiring Technology and Services of Social Media Threats” reveals, a disturbing social media surveillance network.
DHS/Police are spying on social media in real-time
Section 7 of the BPD proposal reveals, police are spying on social media in real-time.
“The Boston Regional Intelligence Center of the BPD, invites proposals from qualified proposers to provide real-time open source and social media threat detection and analysis systems, software, and/or services for use by the Boston Regional Intelligence Center and select law enforcement personnel of the Metro Boston Homeland Security Region.”
Did you catch that? Not only are police spying on social media in real-time, but DHS is behind it.
Police have been spying on social media since at least 2012. Click here to read my article warning everyone about DHS social media spying.
Citizens are being red-flagged based on their sentiments
Page 22 of the BPD proposal reveals, how corporations are red flagging citizens based on their sentiments…
“This includes the ability for users of the solution be alerted in near-real-time to significant or threatening social media and/or online open source content based on user input, to include but not be limited to keywords, Boolean search strings, pre-defined thresholds, trends and sentiment. The solution should apply machine learning and natural language processing capabilities to augment use of terms, slang, lexicon and verbiage of relevance to the user. Alerts must be produced autonomously 24/7/365 without direct user monitoring of the system.”
What they’re really saying is, private corporations will red flag a person’s social media comments and determine their sentiments, 24/7/365 days a year!
According to professor Juan Manuel Corchado, law enforcement could use the tool to detect , threats and areas with concentrations of potentially dangerous people. “It’s based both on the semantic analysis of messages and historical data and their evolution.”
“This is a new world for law enforcement. We have people that monitor social media particularly in and around the things that we think may be related to hate crimes, and then we make value judgments based on the law” Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said.
According to Merriam Webster Dictionary, a value judgment is “a personal opinion about how good or bad someone or something is.”
Dictionary.com says, value judgments “reveal the values of the person making the assessment rather than the objective realities of what is being assessed.”
Police across the country are using their own opinions [value judgments] to justify spying and arresting citizens. If this doesn’t scream ‘junk science’ then I guess nothing does.
People are being arrested based on a cop’s values and our judges allow it!
Police from coast to coast are spying on everyone’s social media posts. Unfortunately, it doesn’t stop there, the DEA and the FBI are also spying on social media.
Last year, I warned everyone that anyone who questions our civil rights or believes in family values is a suspect and will be targeted by Big Brother.
- If you write or comment that there are too many people on Welfare, you’re a target.
- If you believe in family values and write about it you’re a target!
- If you question universal civil rights or human rights, you’re a target!
- If you write, comment or believe we had more civil rights prior to 2001, you’re a target!
“Do not submit any confidential information as part of your proposal.”
For the sake of brevity, I’ve mentioned a few of the disturbing ways the Feds are spying on us. I urge you to read pages 24-32 of the BPD proposal.
Based on BPD’s proposal we can assume, that EVERY social media platform is being spied on.
“Solution shall allow query parameters to include the following: keywords, Boolean logic search strings, usernames, geo-fenced areas, emoticons. Solution shall have the ability to query content based on industry standard emoticons.”
The BPD proposal goes on to mention spying on user comments, the dark web etc., please read pages 24-32 and spread the word, spying on everyone is unconstitutional and must stop.
DHS/Police are using private corporations to spy on us without a warrant. What’s it going to take for people to demand change?
To Big Brother, I give you an emoticon that shouldn’t need a computer to tell you how I feel.

Wisconsin’s Edgewood College wanted police to investigate a post-it note as a hate crime because it told students to “suck it up” in response to Donald Trump’s election.
Been there, done that…
Let me get this straight… so, those with NO values are to make ‘value judgements’ on others?
