Reference: The DAC FAQ
For more than eight months we have read a continuous stream of relevations about how the US Government, through the NSA, has been spying on We the People, putting trap doors into all our electronic devices, and associating us all with terrorists by way of our social media friends' friends' friends.
What have Oakland's politicians done in light of all these revelations about abuses and direct violations of the 1st and 4th amendments by our government? Have any City Officials said "Not in Oakland!" ??
No. They've gone and approved monies to contract out to build an Orwellian-named "Domain Awareness Center (DAC)" right smack in the middle of Oaktown. This DAC will gather information about everyone in Oakland in real time (using license plate readers, facial and body recognition software, Shotspotter microphones and more). It will be capable of collating who you are, where you are, what you are doing on social media, and what you are spending money on. In conjunction with other "Fusion Centers" built by the NSA, state and local governments around the country, it will track everyone and everything in Oakland from kids in school to politicians visiting their lovers.
