Paying For The Surveillance State: Detroit Businesses Are Being FORCED To Pay To Allow Police To SPY On Their Customers

Do you LOVE America?



    In yet another shocking example of the ever increasing American police state, the Mayor of Detroit is planning to mandate that all businesses that stay open later than 10pm be equipped with surveillance equipment that said businesses would then be forced to pay for.

    The mandate would increase the amount of businesses taking part in Project Green Light from 230 to upwards of 4,000. Over 200 businesses have already voluntarily signed up for what is essentially a video surveillance system that is directly monitored at a main police hub in the city.

    Local news outlet Crain reported:

    Mayor Mike Duggan’s administration is moving forward with a plan to eventually mandate every retail business in Detroit with late-night hours have surveillance cameras tied into Project Green Light, the Detroit Police Department’s real-time crime monitoring system credited with a decrease in carjackings and overall crime around participating businesses.

    In an interview Wednesday with Crain’s, Duggan said he will ask City Council later this year to mandate Project Green Light high-definition video systems for all retail businesses open after 10 p.m.

    Duggan said the city will start with requiring the camera systems for bars, restaurants, gas stations and other businesses open between midnight and 4 a.m. during the “highest risk” time for crimes to occur. Then the city will move to businesses open after 10 p.m., he said.

    The report goes on to then reveal that businesses themselves actually pay for the surveillance which means that if Project Green Light becomes mandatory, American companies will literally be forced by the law to pay to spy on their own customers whether they want too or not.

    Businesses in the Green Light project get extra patrols from Detroit Police Department officers who stop in to sign a log book, documenting the visit. Startup costs for getting the surveillance cameras installed ranges between $1,000 and $6,000, with monthly costs for cloud storage of the video starting at around $140.

    Officers can access the live video feeds inside DPD’s Real-Time Crime Center in the Detroit Public Safety Headquarters on Third Avenue.

    Additionally, the mayor seems absolutely hellbent on forcing every single business in his city to install the surveillance and has even gone as far as to slander business owners who don’t want the equipment by ludicrously claiming that they work with drug dealers themselves!

    There has been some grumbling among business owners in Detroit about pressure they have felt to join Project Green Light, for which the city claimed a trademark in 2016.

    Duggan said the pressure is being driven by neighbors of retail businesses who had boycotted some establishments for their refusal to install the cameras and green lights.

    “There’s no doubt there’s businesses in this city that are in partnership with the drug dealers out in their parking lots, who don’t want the green light,” the mayor said. “I’m letting the neighbors deal with that.”

    In other words, if you do not install our Orwellian spy equipment then we will conduct a propaganda campaign to convince your neighbors that you do not want the surveillance gear because you work with drug dealers.

    Absolutely unbelievable.

      1. A perfect example of a SHITHOLE town. So the mayor and elders pass a new code requiring these places of business to “pony up or else” even though they’re probably close to folding. It should work rather well LMAO.

        • How do cameras stop crime or a robbery???. Just wear a mask. Detroit police just don”t want to fo their jobs. And all this is, is another revenue raising scheme. Just like Red Light cameras. Which caused more accidents with sudden stops than they prevented. Who is still stupid enough to still be living in Detroit?

          2 Types of people in the world. Those who just want to be left alone and those Aholes who wont leave you alone.

      2. I follow this one Utuber, ChalieBo313, who has more than 60K subscribers. He drives around various ghettos and goes into stores and videos the people inside. Here is his latest video:

        Most ghetto stores have everything behind plexiglass or else mobs will come in and strip the store clean.

        I don’t know if this approach will work. Probably not. Plenty of people are photographed punching people, kicking them, robbing them and if they are colored nothing happens. Colin Flaherty had several Utube channels, which have been removed. Why? Apparently people thought Colin’s version of the truth was “hate speech.”

      3. Typical Democrat mayor. He learned from Obama, just make a mandate.

      4. WTF is that mayor smoking? He has the nerve to accuse certain businesses of being in cahoots with drug dealers because they don’t want to voluntarily join his program? And then he claims the businesses HAVE to pay for the cameras out of their pockets? Just another freakin’ shakedown. I would tell the mayor, 1. You have to prove your allegations of businesses working with drug dealers and, 2. Take your MANDATE AND SHOVE IT. Come try to do something about it.

      5. One correction to my last post. The mayor is typical libturd POS.

      6. Detroit simply just ain’t Detroit anymore. Used to be the auto-building capital, music was in the air (regardless if it wasn’t to my own like or taste, it was a big business), people moving up in the world, trades being learned…. and what? To this? Just string the barbed wire up, turn off the electric and water and let the savages destroy what’s left and themselves. Bulldoze flat in about 6 months and start over.

      7. I guess the debt Jubilee has been pushed back.

      8. Put those cameras on the politicians to make sure they are doing their jobs and not involved in corruption. Mandate that!

        • That or hitting on the women that work for ’em.

      9. Propaganda campaign? I thought spreading that kind of “information” was slander. I could be living in a vacuum though.

      10. Someone want to bet that the mayor has connections to the company that will be installing/maintaining the surveillance equipment? That’s just how these things work.

      11. I say those same cameras should be installed in all political buildings and offices, I mean, do we or do we not own those buildings?

      12. We pay taxes that are used to suppress our freedoms and to empower our oppressors. What else is new?


      13. some of those biznesses are just hanging on – start in with this BS and some are just going to close doors …

      14. Follow the money. Who is making $$$ with this system? Who in DPD and government is getting $$$ to institute it?

      15. This is why cameras are used, 90% of the Detroit police live in the suburbs outside of Detroit. 60% are white little punks that think they have street cred being a cop. You can pick them out by what they drive, the e-leagal window tint , the old English D,and the AR emblem on the back glass. You will find them sitting in the daily traffic jam heading into the city at day break and returning just before dusk. You see, being white in the city after dark, not good. When they broadcast a shooting in Detroit, all of the police are in either tactical gear or in plain clothing they don’t want to be associated with the department. Crime in the DPD is rampant .
        We the people should demand if you work for the city – you live in the city. Maybe when they pass by the school with the drugies selling on the corner or someone strippping a car on the main road out of town they will question it, Not hide inside a secure building miles away and call for the swat team from the suburbs. This is just another failed police department. Robbing the people.

      16. What a joke… just put an implant in every criminal…I am sure they will line up and volunteer to be chipped…

      17. How did a white guy get to be the mayor of Detroit?
