+ - EU might be listening to you at last->

Submitted by Ronald Dumsfeld
Ronald Dumsfeld (723277) writes "Wikinews puts together some of the details around the EU's five-year-plan called Project INDECT, and brings attention to a leaked "sales-pitch" video.

"An unreleased promotional video for INDECT located on YouTube is shown to the right. The simplified example of the system in operation shows a file of documents with a visible INDECT-titled cover stolen from an office and exchanged in a car park. How the police are alerted to the document theft is unclear in the video; as a "threat", it would be the INDECT system's job to predict it.
Throughout the video use of CCTV equipment, facial recognition, number plate reading, and aerial surveillance give friend-or-foe information with an overlaid map to authorities. The police proactively use this information to coordinate locating, pursing, and capturing the document recipient. The file of documents is retrieved, and the recipient roughly detained."
