A recent article in Motherboard reveals how sports stadiums are spying on everyone's instant messages, Tweets and sentiments. (I couldn't find any pictures of a U.S. sport stadium security room, so I posted one of a 2014 World Cup security room.)
Sports stadiums across the country are using 'Babel Street' and 'Babel X' to spy on fan's sentiments and social media accounts.
Last year the ACLU, revealed how police use these companies to spy on everyone's social media and a 2014 Lexis Nexis report, revealed the tools police use to spy on social media. A year ago, 'The Intercept' warned everyone that the CIA is investing in firms like Geofeedia to help law enforcement spy on social media. (Click here to see how the North Charleston Police spy on social media.)
Sports stadiums and police use 'sentiment analysis' to spy on fans
People being arrested because of their sentiments, what could possibly go wrong?
Let's say, you're a NY Yankees fan jeering and booing Boston Red Sox players and you Tweet the Red Sox suck or something similar. When out of nowhere you're surrounded by police and security and kicked out of the ballpark. The police inform you that you're being charged with 'inciting a riot or terrorism.'
Congratulations, you're life's been ruined by corporate/police spying sentiment analysis.
Sports stadiums use biometrics to spy on fans
Last year, CLEAR a biometrics company installed 'fastlane' fingerprint lines at Marlins Park in Florida.
In 2016, CLEAR announced they've partnered with Amazon, American Express and U.S. Customs to help expand their reach and it seems to be working. Currently, CLEAR is being used in 18 cities across the country.
Soon CLEAR, will be in every sports stadium in America if DHS has its way.
