Calif. Politican Thinks Blurred Online Maps Would Deter Terrorists
http://it.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=09/03/04/2044223&from=rss

A ideia é a seguinte: para evitar que a Califórnia sofra um ataque semelhante aos de Mumbai, "California Assemblyman Joel Anderson plans to introduce a bill to force Google Earth and similar services to blur images of so-called 'soft targets' like schools, hospitals, churches and government buildings to protect them from terrorists. 'All I'm trying to do is stop terrorists,' said Anderson. 'I don't want California to be helping map out future targets for terrorists.' Concerns that detailed satellite imagery and photographs available on Web services could help terrorists plan attacks are not new, with reports that terrorists have used such imagery to carry out attacks in Iraq and Israel, and an Indian court is considering a ban on Google Earth following reports that its imagery played a part in the Mumbai terrorist attacks."

A ideia é borrar dos mapas online todas as referências a possíveis alvos civis por parte dos terroristas. O problema é que este tipo de abordagem nunca resultou: "Security expert Bruce Schneier recently wondered what other things legislators might consider banning to prevent terrorism: 'Bank robbers have long used cars and motorcycles as getaway vehicles, and horses before then. I haven't seen it talked about yet, but the Mumbai terrorists used boats as well. They also wore boots. They ate lunch at restaurants, drank bottled water and breathed the air,' wrote Schneier. 'Society survives all of this because the good uses of infrastructure far outweigh the bad uses, even though the good uses are — by and large — small and pedestrian and the bad uses are rare and spectacular.'"

A única utilidade aparente deste tipo de leis, parece ser esta: "No, Because terrorism is already against the laws. Creating ancillary "use laws" just helps the government battle non-terrorist activities.

Owning fertilizer is not against the law. But if "using fertilizer in a terrorist act" becomes a crime, an oppressive government could go after people who own fertilizer they want to censor. Intent can be sold by a sharp prosecuting attorney to an average people jury, even when its not true.

If anything in the last 10 years, learn from how many laws have been created to fight terrorism has been used against terrorists vs. outspoken citizens."


Se calhar, impedir que as moradas de tais edifícios fossem publicadas era capaz de ser menos má ideia... :doido:

"There's no need to go to that extreme, we can just blur the addresses out.

As others have mentioned, terrorism is the new bogeyman to

1. to keep people distracted from domestic issues
2. fund more military and/or homeland 'security' spending
3. justify more idiotic legislation like this one

I'm not afraid of Terrorists. I'm afraid of the idiots who believe that Terrorists are our biggest problem, thereby keeping these jackasses in power."


Até parece que os terroristas são incapazes de seguir os grandes autocarros amarelos... "Of course, the terrorists wouldn't be smart enough to follow the giant train of large yellow things at 7:30-8am. Nor the hordes of small Americans, all walking the same direction.

A more effective plan would be to build big underground bunkers, and not let the children ever come out." :twisted:


Alguém já imaginou as consequências que tal legislação irá ter nos planos dos terroristas?

Terr'st1: "Are you ready to hit the school and strike a blow against the evil US?"
Terr'st2: "Yes! We must stand up against the Great Satan!"
Terr'st1: "Good! Grab the map."
Terr'st2: "It's... it's blurred! This cannot be!"
Terr'st1: "Curses! We are foiled."
Terr'st2: "You outsmarted us this time Great Satan! But we will be back."

Terr'st1: Damn, India just banned Google Earth to prevent what were trying to do..
Terr'st2: And that affects us sitting here in Pakistan how?

Terrorist 1: Ok, i've printed out this map of the target, its a middleschool attended by 400 kids, if we crash a plane into it, we might be able to take half of it out and maybe kill 200 of the great satan's young.

Terrorist 2: Excellent, since we've taken over this plane in a post 9/11 environment where the average person who flies in a plane believes that if a terrorist takes over the plane, their lives are forfeit anyway, they had no problem revolting and attempting to kill us.

Terrorist 1: Yeah, that was rough, thanks be that we had our bottles of water to fight them off.

Terrorist 2: Don't forget our nail clippers and cuticle scissors! Anyway, I think our target should be over there, that's elm street. Aim between the soccer field and the baseball diamond.

Terrorist 1: Wait! That looks nothing like the picture! Its not blurred out like in the print out!

Terrorist 2: Drat, foiled again, CURSE YOU JOEL ANDERSON!!!!


Eu até tenho medo destes americanos, que vivem num clima de constante medo e terror... :roll:
