Alexa calls cops on man allegedly beating his girlfriend

Recommended Posts

A New Mexico man was arrested for allegedly beating his girlfriend and threatening to kill her — after Amazon’s Alexa called police, authorities said.

Eduardo Barros, 28, became angered with his unidentified girlfriend while housesitting in Tijeras, about 15 miles east of Albuquerque, and the dispute suddenly turned physical on July 2, authorities said.

During the assault, Barros waved a gun and threatened to kill the woman before he allegedly asked: “Did you call the sheriffs?”

The question was inadvertently picked up by the smart speaker and the voice-powered virtual assistant recognized the phrase as a command — prompting it to call 911, Bernallillo County Sheriff’s Department

Deputy Felicia Romero confirmed to The Post on Monday.

My Echo keeps turning on and listening to my family.  We don't even come close to calling the command name ECHO most of the time.  I just is always listening...   Probably recording what a terrible parent I am. :)

Don't worry they have probably sent it all to the nearest fusion center for storage.  :/

There comes a time when you have to say to yourself, what's the angle with these "smart devices"?? Time to unplug that shit no?

I have long ago unplugged / deactivated and refuse to activate - microphones or cameras connected to any computer.  Cellular is always "face-down" or all apps closed.  Too much spy-vs-spy going on all over.

Now see that brings something to mind right now. Recalling the analog to digital forcing over with the tv industry's signal structure.... More frames per second @ 4k now like phuck man, 4000 pictures are flashed into one second. Well if you remember back when interviews came on of celebs, news reporters, politicians, etc, they would catch them ALL the time with the snake eye slit action. Now think back to the movie "They Live". The masking that was used via RF transmissions, well I've come to realize that the masking was failing extremely bad when the analog tv transmissions we're being used, and they had to step up the masking a whole lot more, and hypnotic imaging that plays subliminally in between all those thousands of frames per second to keep themselves from being exposed. Just a observation but I truly think there was a lot more to that conversion than they told us back then. It surely wasn't to have a crystal clear picture, it was to step up the masking
