LAPD’s Creepy Orwellian Anti-terrorism Ad (video)

Ever get the feeling you’re being watched?

Check out the Los Angeles Police Department’s creepy new public service announcement for its city-wide anti-terrorism iWatch program. The civilian program was launched earlier this month and is endorsed by 63 police chiefs around the country.

The ad features wide-eyed, blink-free residents reciting Orwellian mantras and looking as if they’re about to crawl out of your television like that girl in “The Ring.”

    Dude says,
    “Think about the POWER of that.”
    Yeah. Think about the power…of THAT.

    think of all the bogus terror tips cops will be calling in to themselves to get around warrents and probable cause

    Yes. Terrorism is a crime.

    However, doing something that some other person might construe as something that could possibly lead to a terrorist act is not a crime.

    Good luck determining which is which.

    Although, this is a good opportunity for concerned citizens to flood the system by reporting suspicious activity perpetrated by the police force itself. Simply for irony's sake as no action will come from it.

    Love how LAPD have disabled comments.
    Shows they've no interest in constructive feedback or people questioning their authority.

    Remember America,
    You have nothing to fear, but fear itself.
    Your Government is doing a wonderful job in scaremongering!
    They WANT you to be scared, so they can erode your rights/liberties.
    Now those rights come with responsibilities, like standing up to those that dare try and erode or steal them from you.
    You, and only you can defend your rights, not your government.

    Since successful terrorist attacks are always sponsored by the CIA or some sort of intelligence agency, what chance do the local slobs down at the police station have in stopping them. This is simply part of the “divide and conquer” strategy being used against the general populace. The msm training works well, though. Look at the long lines for free vaccinations.
