The reality of Big Brother becomes more apparent every day. For the past year, the City of Baltimore and it’s police department, has secretly conducted aerial surveillance of a 30-square-mile area of the city. The technology uses a small plane with high-resolution cameras to track activity, including crimes, saving images and footage on hard drives. Ohio-based Persistent Surveillance Systems is owner of the technology used by the U.S. military during the Iraq War. The project is privately funded by John Arnold, a former Enron trader and philanthropist from Texas. The city of Baltimore never publicly disclosed the program to the public.
