The Free Thought Project & Tom Zebra, Turn the Police State Inside Out. ‘Drones Over LAPD’ 

Tom got his start filming the police after an encounter where he witnessed serious brutality and the Torrence Police destroyed his recording.

Arrested countless times for filming since that incident, he has not let it slow him down one bit. Infact, it has caused him to up his game even harder, purchasing a DJI Phantom 2 Drone fully equipped with a 14MP camera with 1080p HD video capability- thanks to a settlement from the Hawthorne PD.

This Giant Portrait Of A Child Shows Drone Operators The Human Face Of Their Victims
The piece was installed in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) province, close to Pakistan’s northwest border with Afghanistan, by an art collective that includes Pakistanis, Americans and others associated with the French artist JR.
The collective says it produced the work in the hope that U.S. drone operators will see the human face of their victims in a region that has been the target of frequent strikes.

Death By Metadata : Jeremy Scahill & Glenn Greenwald Reveal NSA Role in Assassinations Overseas [full video at link] — http://www.democracynow.org/2014/2/10/death_by_metadata_jeremy_scahill_glenn

In the first exposé for their new venture, First Look Media’s [https://www.firstlook.org/] digital journal The Intercept [https://twitter.com/the_intercept], investigative journalists Jeremy Scahill and Glenn Greenwald reveal the National Security Agency is using complex analysis of electronic surveillance, rather than human intelligence, as the primary method to locate targets for lethal drone strikes.

The NSA identifies targets based on controversial metadata analysis and cellphone tracking technologies, an unreliable tactic that has resulted in the deaths of innocent and unidentified people. The United States has reportedly carried out drone strikes without knowing whether the individual in possession of a tracked cellphone or SIM card is in fact the intended target of the strike.
