Porch Cameras and Facebook Groups Are Turning Streets into Surveillance States 

Getting a [camera] lets Amazon off the hook because they don’t have to replace a package. But it’s also a handy way for them to surveil their workforce.

The use of surveillance tech normalizes the idea that the world should be a place in which neighbourhoods are fortresses, with underpaid workers delivering goods to the relatively wealthy under an unblinking eye.

Porch Cameras and Facebook Groups Are Turning Streets into Surveillance States 

@danso I would like to add that their is difference between surveillance cameras and security cameras. I have no problems with the latter since they store the data on a server in your house. I do have a problem with cameras sold as security cameras that are in fact surveillance cameras. E.g the Ring brand from Amazon that stores the video on external servers to be used for all kinds of abuse.

@ericbuijs @danso

people under stress become irrational, they will accept anything that is served to them as a solution, failed vaccines, security cameras, anything.
