A real life migrant game: fun for us, not them

Sociological Images brings us this chilling development in ‘border protection’: you can sit in comfort in front of your computer screen and help protect the United States against criminals!

BlueServo has provided us with Virtual Community Watch:

” an innovative real-time surveillance program designed to empower the public to proactively participate in fighting border crime.”

US citizens can already volunteer their time guarding the U.S./Mexico border against illegal immigration through the Minuteman Project.

An NPR program, A New Way To Patrol The Texas Border: Virtually, quotes a ‘Minuteman’:

“He pops a Red Bull, turns on some Black Sabbath or Steppenwolf, logs in to http://www.blueservo.net – and starts protecting his country. “This gives me a little edge feeling,” Fahrenkamp says, “like I’m doing something for law enforcement as well as for our own country.”

Trouble is, many of the criminals are in fact desperate people risking everything for a chance at a better life.

These cameras are directly aimed at capturing illegal immigrants: Camera-731Camera-614

I am sure they will recruit many willing volunteers. All that excitement, in safety, and feeling patriotic and manly at the same time.
