Joe Cadillic has posted the third part of his series on “VACCINE” on MassPrivateI. If you missed the first two parts of his series, you might want to start with them:

Part 1: DHS/Police are turning public CCTV cameras into surveillance cameras.

Part 2: School kids from K-12 are being indoctrinated into accepting DHS’s ‘VACCINE’ spying program, Part 2

In Part 3, Joe not only goes into more detail about how many universities are collaborating with DHS on VACCINE (and why is Boy Scouts of America involved?!), but he also talks about other programs that you may never have heard about (I certainly haven’t): GeoVISTACrimeVizSensePlace2JigsawGARI MERGEcgSARVA and Scatterblog.  And did you know about VALET? Joe writes:

VALET helps cops spy on community events and public transportation.

VALET can also be used to spy on social media, public transportation etc.

The Joint Committee on Transportation created House Bill 4322 (H.4322) after considering several bills that would limit the use of ALPRs.
