Over the last few years we’ve seen our government encourage us to report to the authorities any “fishy behavior” by people that oppose Obama’s health care takeover. We’ve also seen the government ask us to spy on retail giant Wal-Mart and report anything that we find unusual to “Big Sis”. Now a company known as Citizen Concepts is taking it one creepy step further by developing an iPhone app that will make it easy to rat out your neighbors, your boss, local businesses and more.
Thanks to the power of technology, his handy dandy iPhone app is turning average citizens into a network of spies for the Department of Homeland Security.
Citizen Concepts announces the launch of PatriotAppTM, the world’s first iPhone application that empowers citizens to assist government agencies in creating safer, cleaner, and more efficient communities via social networking and mobile technology. This app was founded on the belief that citizens can provide the most sophisticated and broad network of eyes and ears necessary to prevent terrorism, crime, environmental negligence, or other malicious behavior.
Simply download, report (including pictures) and submit information to relevant government agencies, employers, or publish incident data to social network tools.
The misleading name “Patriotapp” tries to make users feel patriotic, but in reality this is just a simple tool that will turn us into snitches for DHS and to keep citizens fearful and dependent on Big Sis to protect us.
