NYPD Hyper Militarization Escalates with Bratton's "SRG" for Advanced Disorder Control

NY Post. Bratton Escalates and/or Formalizes Militarization of NYPD to deal with "counter terrorism protection" and "advanced disorder control." There will be "vehicles equipped with machine guns." This unit will be "operational by summer" (how conveninent!) and will be housed in NYPD's very own Counterterrorism Bureau. I had not known that one existed.

What Bezos bought

Jeff Jarvis

Newspapers need to gather "small data" about individual users, such as where they live, work, and what their key interests are, to serve people with greater relevance and value, Jarvis said. "I hope that skill -- building profiles and using them to improve relevance -- is the first that Bezos brings to the Post."

Just Because They Can . . .

A commenter at DailyKos on my previous post on drawing the line in identifying whistle blowers said, among other things:

What I really find interesting is that Greenwald isn't even allegeding any wrong doing or illegal activity, just that the NSA 'has the capability' well no shit sherlock the government could do lots of things that doesn't mean it does or will.

I gave the following answer to that claim. Read more about Just Because They Can . . .
