(MASS PRIVATE I) Bourbon Street/Mardi Gras will never be the same as police state America uses our fears of terrorism to turn 20 neighborhoods into a giant surveillance network! As you’ll see, no one is safe from New Orleans spying surveillance cameras.
Police are spending $40 million dollars to install over a hundred new license plate readers, remote sensing technology, roadblocks, High Definition thermal cameras equipped with night vision and much more. Police have also spent $12.6 million on a new spying command center.
When it’s completed, the new spying system will cost taxpayers $3.8 million a year.
Councilman Jason Williams is concerned about how police will use surveillance cameras…
According to Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s press release, Bourbon St., will be surveilled 24-7.
Mayor Landrieu’s spokesman Tyronne Walker said, “security concerns” prevented him from going into details about how the Feds are using cameras to spy on everyone.
That’s ludicrous, police spying on everyone isn’t a state secret!
For more information about how DHS/Police are using CCTV cameras to spy on everyone, read my four-part series ‘DHS/Police are turning public CCTV cameras into surveillance cameras, Part 1’.
When it comes to DHS & the FBI, no one is safe from their surveillance cameras. According to a New Orleans Advocate article, the FBI plans to add surveillance cameras everywhere.
ProjectNOLA, SafeCam NOLA, New Orleans Police & Justice Foundation and the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center are helping to turn Bourbon St., into a massive surveillance network. (click here to see Project NOLA’S Facebook page and here to see their Twitter page.)
How many people will go to Mardi Gras knowing that DHS, the FBI and the police are spying on them?
“Project NOLA works extensively with property and business owners, churches and schools, civic groups, special improvement taxation districts, and governmental entities, and appreciates the opportunity to speak at meetings. In some neighborhoods where additional grant or supplemental money may be applied, official Project NOLA crime camera kits may be provided free of charge or at even lower discounted pricing, and/or professional install may be provided free of charge.”
In other words, ProjectNOLA is using churches, schools, civic groups and grants to convince the public to spy for them.
According to former cop Bryan Lagarde’s LinkedIn page he created “America’s largest HD networked crime camera system”!
Mr. Lagard is the Executive Director of ProjectNOLA and is also a consultant to the FBI, DEA, ATF and DHS.
In other words, Mardi Gras, Bourbon Street and all of New Orleans has been turned into America’s largest spying network.
