Previously on SBPDL: Ring Wi-Fi Smart Video Doorbell Captures Armed Black Male Trying to Rob White Man at His Home in Broad Daylight in St. Louis

Private citizens utilizing Amazon’s Ring technology to protect their property is… racist. [Activists are pressuring lawmakers to stop Amazon Ring’s police surveillance partnerships, Vox.com, October 8, 2019]:

More than 30 civil rights organizations, including RAICES, Media Justice, and the National Immigration Law Center, published a joint letter Tuesday asking lawmakers to end local police partnerships with Amazon’s Ring.

The video doorbell company has more than 500 partnerships with police. These agreements permit law enforcement officers to directly contact Ring owners and ask for video to use when investigating nearby crimes. These partnerships sometimes also include free or discounted Ring products that police distribute to residents in their communities. Ring users are able to post footage to Ring’s Neighbors social media app, where users can view and comment on videos.

In their letter, the civil rights organizers emphasized a number of concerns about the partnerships, including the possibility that video footage could be misused, that employees at Amazon have access to the footage, and that Ring might incorporate facial recognition technology with the surveillance doorbells.

Beyond these concerns, an expanding network of Ring surveillance has other impacts on communities, including giving people the false sense that crime is on the rise in an area, even as crime rates nationwide are declining. Ring’s Neighbors can also disproportionately affect people of color by exacerbating existing biases: Racism and racial profiling have proliferated on the app.

“With no oversight and accountability, Amazon’s technology creates a seamless and easily automated experience for police to request and access footage without a warrant, and then store it indefinitely,” they wrote. “In the absence of clear civil liberties and rights-protective policies to govern the technologies and the use of their data, once collected, stored footage can be used by law enforcement to conduct facial recognition searches, target protesters exercising their First Amendment rights, teenagers for minor drug possession, or shared with other agencies like ICE or the FBI.”

Ring said a number of the civil rights organizations’ claims are inaccurate, including the idea that Ring is a threat to civil liberties.

Technology is a wonderful thing.

It enables us to see racial truths otherwise hidden by the corporate/mainstream media.

Or, racial truths that civil rights organizations demand be outlawed from being broadcast to the nation… because they might start to influence social policy.

  1. giving people the false sense that crime is on the rise in an area, even as crime rates nationwide are declining

    Colin Flaherty has exposed this lie over and over again. Cities with sizeable black population and leftist administrations are under reporting crimes. There is no incentive for them to tell the truth about black crime and dysfunction.

    It’s plainly obvious that the complete decriminalization of any and all black behavior is the end game here. Clown World writ large.

    • Agree: Mr. Grey, Love Street
  2. I’m on the fence on this one. Yes, Ring helps catch negroes. But I don’t trust AmaZOG. Bezos and his CIA data server farms, his ownership of the Washington Compost plus his subservience to the ADL’s censorship is someone not to be trusted.

    Besides, the negroes get off with barely a wrist slap.

    D-FENS--------Amazon Ring may well be over kill.Everybody,except for the willfully blind,or perhaps isolated Amazonian tribes are already aware of TNB. Besides Dindu Americus will probably pose loot in hand on his Face Book account.
  3. Technology is a wonderful thing.

    On so many levels.

    It enables us to see racial truths otherwise hidden by the corporate/mainstream media.

    It proves that “hate facts” like Negroes in Negroland were established truth long ago, and The Narrative is a genocidal lie.

    Or, racial truths that civil rights organizations demand be outlawed from being broadcast to the nation… because they might start to influence social policy.

    That list of “civil rights” organizations and their significant members is a good starting point for a program to Clean Up America… but to really do the trick it needs to include (((their financiers.)))

  4. Once again, blacks are caught helpless as technology marches on.

    Rather than saying “don’t rob people, they have cameras and the police can get the footage”, the numerous black cover operations try to block the innocent from simply monitoring their own property and sharing videos with the police.

  6. Its going to be tough for low quality criminals in the future. Already we are seeing the negro having to adapt to technology. ‘Flash mobs’ and the ‘smash and grab attack’ are replacing the shoplifter as the most effective way to steal from merchants but they are not long term solutions to the problem the negro faces as stores will build defenses to these threats.

    This why there are these kind of ‘movements’ to decriminalize negro behavior and ban certain citizen and merchant defenses like video surveillance, bullet proof barriers or just not prosecuting thefts below a certain threshold.

    The political problem is so many negroes will be caught up by this new technology or even denied the ability to steal a car, computer, TV or any other remotely linked device that can be turned off at the owners request that the negro underclass will be locked out of society.

    I don't think that is a fair comparison.

    If I recall Wells correctly, the Morlocks lived underground and serviced the various pieces of machinery, while the Eloi lived above ground and served as snacks.

    The Morlocks, then, were actually gainfully employed if cannibalistic.

    And Usually some asshole will show up to provide incomplete and out of context data To prance about as though it substantiates this claim

    They think this phrase justifies the blatant criminality in certain demographics.

    It’s ok that they are overwhelmingly criminals, crime is on the decline!

    Check out her quote regarding us deplorables and a kid who held his ground to a fake war hero, a drunken savage who banged a drum (likely made in China) in his face for standing up the the Black Hebrew Israelites. And she has two sons and a lesbian divorce in her personal history.

    It is this ruling class lover of blacks who doesn’t have to put up with black crime. Ex-Mrs. Whoever, now Ms. Lesbian has been afforded a lifestyle far removed from mine and likely yours.

    She is nobody’s “better”. She may be “progressive” but where is she trying to make society proceed? Force her to live with the Wakandan-Americans she loves so much and allow her no doorbell camera, no doorbell or no door for all I give a damn.

    They want to “out” us, deplatform us and silence us. They want economic ruin in our lives for wanting exactly what blacks have. Freedom of association in our own neighborhoods without outsiders coming in to rob, rape, etc…

    Find out who these idiots are and do not support anyone who supports them.

  15. Simply put, the Negro, who is inclined to commit more crime and acts of violence, wants to limit the ability of society to stop him. These people are unfit to live in a civilized country.

  16. I’m not sure how these partnerships with police work but they may be exactly right. Even ADT and the other alarm companies have to have a go-between to contact the police for their customers. If ring is somehow going straight to the police then they may actually have a case here.
    Mind you, they can’t stop people from filming the felonious negro in their natural habitat or using the footage come trial time…. just that they can’t have the police plugged into the system.

  17. Electronic snitches can’t get stitches so they have to come up with some other way to try and shut them down. Plus the fact that they hate the idea that they’re being automatically watched even when no one is around and their “activities” will be recorded. No more claiming that a witness is wrong and “dat wuz jus’ someone who looks lak me who done did dat!” or, “I wuzn’t dere dat day! I wuz at muh cuzzin’s house!” Oh yeah? Then who’s this on this recording stealing from a parked car?

    I agree that facial recognition technology needs to improve as per black people. There’s been stories where apps have misidentified blacks as gorilla’s. Luckily, such apps aren’t tied into ring doorbells and a zoo alert system otherwise the alarms for an escaped gorilla would be going off constantly and drive the zoo keepers insane. “No, dammit! We’ve counted the gorillas five hundred times today! They’re all here! Leave us alone!” If a gorilla did escape, there’d be so many alerts going off across the city, no one would know where to look for it. Gorilla on Main street! No! It’s on 5th Avenue! No! It’s on Clairmont Circle! No! It’s on Davis Lane! Gaaaaah! Where is it?!? Alerts are popping up everywhere! There’s thousands of them! We’ll never find it!

    Anyway, as far as the cops being a danger to black people, all they have to do is follow normal rules: Don’t argue, don’t be belligerant, don’t fight, don’t attack and don’t run. Too hard?

  26. Somewhat OT: I recently bought a Blink XT2 and a Wyze camera. If you have WiFi (2.4 GHz) and a smart phone and need a cheap security system I can recommend either of these cloud-using systems. They both have their limitations but overall they are worth the money. The Blink XT2’s price has recently gone up to $99 from 79, and the Wyze has gone up to about $25, although the Wyze site is still selling it for about 20. Plus tax, shipping and you’ll want a 32 gig micro-SD card for the Wyze ($7-8). The Blink has no local storage, only cloud. The Blink XT2 runs on lithium batteries but does have a micro-usb port for a typical 5v usb wall wart. I don’t think the cheaper ($79) indoor version of Blink can be externally powered.

    One limitation is that they depend on an internet connection, as does the Ring, and as these things spread it will only be a matter of time before thieves start routinely cutting cables before breaking in, adding more expense and hassle to the homeowner. 5G should take care of that, though.

  27. ” including giving people the false sense that crime is on the rise in an area, even as crime rates nationwide are declining”

    They don’t want an independent source of data that contradicts the official narrative. They would also shut down the national victims of crime stats as well.

    Police departments have admitted to downgrading crimes and doctoring crime stats in response to political pressure. Once a single major department admits that, it is game over.

These groups are closer to terrorist organizations by pure definition, although the term “terrorist” has been completely appropriated and rendered worthless by misuse.

    Amazon is pushing Ring because their retail businesses rely on package delivery. I don’t applaud mega tech firms, but sometimes interests are strongly aligned. I’m happy to see some big tech muscle and money on my side. Even if most of their benefit might be reducing inaccurate or fraudulent claims.

    Also, bloviation about camera’s being racist is not going to fly. I dare any of the SJW organizations to openly claim unconscious bias in video recordings. They have made these claims regarding algorithms and software, which have gained some support. But if they push too hard on video, the entire specious line of reasoning will suffer.

    In theory, citizens could defend their porch/packages with force. But these cameras won’t use any force.

    Technology is going to disrupt crime. Video. Use of cards vs cash. Anti Theft ignition systems — which is why auto theft is declining, but carjackings are up. Plus smart phones add a layer of biometric security. I use ApplePay on a phone vs card.

  45. Per comment above- “releasing footage COULD lead to negative stereotypes”. They actually mean they are afraid the cameras WILL REINFORCE already proven negative stereotypes.

    They're afraid that their lies about racial equality will be widely and PUBLICLY disbelieved, which will probably be the straw that breaks the camel's back and bring down the entire CultMarx/PC edifice.

    Can't come soon enough.
  46. Eventually all homes will have cameras on the front, rear and inside. I am amazed that more cars don’t have dashcams like in Russia. Community pages on Facebook have frequent warnings about thieves driving through in the day time looking for homes and cars to rob. The videos clearly show the Norwegian and Amish gangsters with criminal intent in their eyes

    Electronic snitches can't get stitches so they have to come up with some other way to try and shut them down. Plus the fact that they hate the idea that they're being automatically watched even when no one is around and their "activities" will be recorded. No more claiming that a witness is wrong and "dat wuz jus' someone who looks lak me who done did dat!" or, "I wuzn't dere dat day! I wuz at muh cuzzin's house!" Oh yeah? Then who's this on this recording stealing from a parked car?

    I agree that facial recognition technology needs to improve as per black people. There's been stories where apps have misidentified blacks as gorilla's. Luckily, such apps aren't tied into ring doorbells and a zoo alert system otherwise the alarms for an escaped gorilla would be going off constantly and drive the zoo keepers insane. "No, dammit! We've counted the gorillas five hundred times today! They're all here! Leave us alone!" If a gorilla did escape, there'd be so many alerts going off across the city, no one would know where to look for it. Gorilla on Main street! No! It's on 5th Avenue! No! It's on Clairmont Circle! No! It's on Davis Lane! Gaaaaah! Where is it?!? Alerts are popping up everywhere! There's thousands of them! We'll never find it!

    Anyway, as far as the cops being a danger to black people, all they have to do is follow normal rules: Don't argue, don't be belligerant, don't fight, don't attack and don't run. Too hard?

    HILARIOUS!

  49. This is a LIE!!!!!!! even as crime rates nationwide are declining.

  50. @Logan
    giving people the false sense that crime is on the rise in an area, even as crime rates nationwide are declining.

    These two ideas are not in conflict in the least. Crime can be going up in an area while going down nationwide.

    STOP IT!!! That statement is a lie!

  51. @D-FENS
    I’m on the fence on this one. Yes, Ring helps catch negroes. But I don’t trust AmaZOG. Bezos and his CIA data server farms, his ownership of the Washington Compost plus his subservience to the ADL’s censorship is someone not to be trusted.

    Besides, the negroes get off with barely a wrist slap.

    D-FENS——–Amazon Ring may well be over kill.Everybody,except for the willfully blind,or perhaps isolated Amazonian tribes are already aware of TNB. Besides Dindu Americus will probably pose loot in hand on his Face Book account.

    You can’t fix stupid. Civil Rights Organizations are lead by blacks…right?
     
    I assume this is rhetorical, but for good measure (and without checking first) of the 30 civil rights orgs, 30 will either have been founded by a judeo-marxist or currently operated by bergs, steins and bergsteins, oh my.

    Sick of Orcs———-As a somewhat clueless young man i once bought a house at the edge of an Orc neighborhood with the expectation of gentrification——-And then the tide came in. Fortunately a greater fool then bought my property.I even made a small net profit.

    This is the sort of "person" who grows up to be an enemy to all. Oh, she went to Princeton Day School, graduated with a true "BS degree" and went to Scum-loumbia Uni in NYC (aka the Rotten Apple).

    Check out her quote regarding us deplorables and a kid who held his ground to a fake war hero, a drunken savage who banged a drum (likely made in China) in his face for standing up the the Black Hebrew Israelites. And she has two sons and a lesbian divorce in her personal history.

    It is this ruling class lover of blacks who doesn't have to put up with black crime. Ex-Mrs. Whoever, now Ms. Lesbian has been afforded a lifestyle far removed from mine and likely yours.

    She is nobody's "better". She may be "progressive" but where is she trying to make society proceed? Force her to live with the Wakandan-Americans she loves so much and allow her no doorbell camera, no doorbell or no door for all I give a damn.

    They want to "out" us, deplatform us and silence us. They want economic ruin in our lives for wanting exactly what blacks have. Freedom of association in our own neighborhoods without outsiders coming in to rob, rape, etc...

    Find out who these idiots are and do not support anyone who supports them.

  58. All you BadWhites had better start policing your language, instead of crime-ridden hellholes, I mean “Good Neighborhoods because ALL Neighborhoods Are Good”

    “There’s No Such Thing as a Dangerous Neighborhood”

    Most serious urban violence is concentrated among less than 1 percent of a city’s population. So why are we still criminalizing whole areas?
