The menacing, elevated surveillance platform known as SkyWatch is back! The Orwellian contraption was deployed by the NYPD last night at S 4th St. and Roebling St., near an entrance to the Williamsburg Bridge. It was strategically placed in that location to not only watch the people, but the vehicles headed to Manhattan also. Unlike the other SkyWatch systems, this one is specially fitted with a license plate scanner that can provide real time information on drivers, according to an officer on the scene. Apparently the NYPD is moving ahead with their potentially civil rights abusing Operation Sentinel way ahead of schedule.
