I was wrapped up in Hostile Environment training and wasn't able to produce a video this week, well except for this short vlog explaining it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ifgLaf8qDs&list=TLIKnEGjpkRGI

SIRI is recording everything you say, all of your contacts, your in-home devices, and sometimes even your location. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxTJYrsN-pE

 Several stories and accusations have been going around about SIRI and other voice to text services asserting that they are recording what you say and that people actually listen.
Now I say "accusations" because many people are questioning the veracity of some of these claims, mainly reddit user FallenMyst's.

 However, they aren't accusations. The iOS terms clearly state that Apple will record what you say and may send it to subsidiaries and their agents. It goes on to add that they will record the names of your contacts, your relationships with them, in-home devices, and sometimes your location.  

I don't find this surprising at all so it is interesting to see some people question whether this is happening.

We are carrying little tracking devices around with us that record what we say and the worst part is

To add to my comment about the video, once you watch the watchmen break the law you put it on youtube or some other public arena and send the link to their superiors and local news outlets.  But you can only hope for change, don't expect it or demand it, unless its a gross violation.

I wrote this song a long time ago. Lorenzo Serna recorded it for me earlier. Maybe should have done some editing but either way, I hope you like it. "Tim Pool - Take it all inside"

Crime down around 70%?

We could use the same statistics here to say that crime is down. In fact in many instances we judge the rate of crime by arrests and tickets.

What is interesting here is that we had a situation where a man was accused of selling loose cigarettes and was subsequently choked to death (as per the testimony of the medical examiner). Since then police have stopped enforcing low level crimes, exactly what many people had been calling for in a sense.

I'll clarify;

Attempting to arrest someone for a minor offense resulted in a homicide (as per the medical examiner's testimony). If police back off of the small things that don't really harm anyone they are capitulating to many of the protesters demands. (The biggest being a call for prosecution however is still not met.)

HOWEVER

The MOST important thing to take away from this story and the recent statements of the police union is this.

They have said that now they are to only make arrests "when they have to"
which is to imply that arrests before are unnecessary? If the result of the killings is that police have no longer made unnecessary arrests they are sending a dangerous message.

Assuming this is a protest by the police it would seem to have the opposite of the desired affect.
It’s not a slowdown — it’s a virtual work stoppage. NYPD traffic tickets and summonses for minor offenses have dropped off by a staggering 94 percent following the execution of two cops — as office...

Going on Tour in St Louis County

The Structure of St Louis county creates "the gauntlet" where residents fear driving through multiple municipalities and facing multiple fines for one infraction. This results in multiple warrants and eventually jail time in multiple jurisdictions.

They must be hiding this because I hadn't even heard about it.

so sad to watch police who are authorized to "protect and serve" lose touch with the community they are members of and over step the trust and authority that was given them...(be careful out there Tim).
