I almost can’t believe the US Air Force has taken to microblogging to turn imperialism into a cutesy set of blog posts and make colonialism into a web brand. I almost can’t but of course I can. These people think that the death and destruction they cause every day is a suitable subject for a blog that uses that tag “tbt.” The US Air Force is not a cute set of bloggers. It is an imperialist machine which has killed countless people and actively wants to kill thousands more in the interests of protecting its global economic and political interests protected and at the expense of anyone who gets in the at of that.
Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.
I’m having a good laugh right now because our associates just got collectively reprimanded for leaning on the counters during 8 hour shifts on their feet, because it isn’t “professional” looking. So apparently they can put up with a camera over their shoulder to make sure they do their jobs correctly, but a cop with a gun cant?
Do cops want CCTV cams removed from businesses and streets? If they don’t want to monitored on their jobs, why should everyone be monitored at theirs (and in their LIVES)? Oh, it makes cops’ job easier to have a video record of crimes and infractions? Huh.
I work in an office and not retail, but I also know that every website I visit, and instant message or email I send is monitored and stored by my employer.
Also, surveillance cameras in public areas are nearly everywhere in America, watching just about everything completely innocent people are doing.
Police should be held to a higher standard than the public they are sworn to protect, and the data shows that cops equipped with cameras are simply better cops.
