Why We All Should Be Concerned Over “Citizen Rankings” And How Scores Are Calculated

10 posts in this topic

t’s no secret that the United States government is collaborating with businesses to collect metadata on its citizens. In a recent article it was proclaimed that Fresno law enforcement was using technology that gathered information from “arrest reports, property records, commercial databases, deep Web searches” and “social-media postings” to assess a citizen threat score according to the Washington Post.

Eventually we may see citizen rankings become more prominent and even dictate if you can fly,  leave the country, access government buildings, shoot a smart gun, receive a job, healthcare coverage you will receive, enter a self-driving car and even what school your children may attend.

 

Socially, the speculative reality is that a citizen score would gather data from social media sites such as Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram. Facebook, which reads like a public diary, already records your conversations and reports controversial activity to local police. The system would undoubtedly calculate a score based on your friends, political postings, arguments and relationships. If you recently had conversations about suicide or owning firearms, expect your threat rating to increase.

 This is not far fetched in the least. Data bases are all going to be connected.

I like to think my threat level is 'mild'.

Or as we put it in places more familar with slang, "Don't start nothin', won't be nothin'."

But yeah, precrime and thought crime and any other crime we can get cha on to fuel a dying prision industerial complex that over extended their reach and therefore woke up one to many people. 

Jail, it's not just for criminals anymore ^.^ (like how Vegas isn't just for adults...we all remember that ad campaign, right? O.o)

Yes and they will also require butt prints! Oh wait... that's for women, I don't know what they might require for men.

Yeah we here probably all have a "failing" score. Which of course actually means: We're succeeding!
