Big Brother in Holyoke
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
The martial law lock-down and door to door searches in Boston after the Marathon bombing were just the beginning. Massachusetts is no exception to the mission creep of the absurd “war on terror” that has resulted in a growing surveillance state and increased militarization of our law enforcement. Now we have the Massachusetts State Police installing 80 surveillance cameras in Holyoke almost overnight without any community oversight or public meetings on the subject.
Please contact your state elected officials; the mayor; city council; and the ACLU to address your concerns about this invasion. And always remember: If you see something, say something… then smash it to pieces.
