At least 50 U.S. law enforcement agencies have secretly equipped their officers with radar devices that allow them to effectively peer through the walls of houses to see whether anyone is inside, a practice raising new concerns about the extent of government surveillance.

Those agencies, including the FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service, began deploying the radar systems more than two years ago with little notice to the courts and no public disclosure of when or how they would be used. The technology raises legal and privacy issues because the U.S. Supreme Court has said officers generally cannot use high-tech sensors to tell them about the inside of a person's house without first obtaining a search warrant.

The radars work like finely tuned motion detectors, using radio waves to zero in on movements as slight as human breathing from a distance of more than 50 feet. They can detect whether anyone is inside of a house, where they are and whether they are moving.

Even a tinfoil suit can't help us now. Time to wave goodbye to what was left of privacy. Scary article.

They better make devices to find missing planes.

I hope that doesn't happen here. I was planning on growing some weed in my retirement. Mind you I have thirty years before that happens so who knows what technology we will have by then although I suspect weed will be legalised in this country by then. I don't smoke dope now but I plan to in retirement.

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?

Could be, here in NY, they have been utilizing building scanners for several years, for drug busts.
