DSCN5999 The post-911 surveillance state (fusion centers, war on terror crime fighting tactics, license plate scanners, Homeland Security grant money, monitoring of e-mails, text messages, and social media sites, no fly/terror watch lists, Real ID, tracking of cell phones, use of drones, etc.) appears to have played no role in preventing the crimes described below.

In the news-

Homeland Security Vote of Confidence:

Heroin overdose deaths spike nationwide

The Cartels Next Door: Mexican drug lords corner meth market

“Now, law enforcement estimates that about 90 percent of the meth consumed in the United States comes across the border.”

Cops: NYC drug ring brought heroin, fentanyl from Honduras


11 people pass through unmanned airport security checkpoint at JFK

In the news:

Washington’s Most Wanted


Macho Swagger update:

LE agencies share information, tools & techniques.

The good guys have the upper hand and plenty of cocky confidence in these made for TV scenarios.

In the real world of crime fighting- Houston Space Center mission control-style HQs fail to keep cartels from moving product into US communities.

Newspeople remain silent.
