Government Software Calculates Your ‘Threat Score’ And Categorizes Citizens As Red, Yellow Or Green

Government Surveillance - Public DomainDo you know what your “threat score” is? Today, more than 90 percent of all local police departments and nearly all government agencies employ some sort of technological surveillance. One of the most common applications is called “Beware”, and it scans billions of “arrest reports, property records, commercial databases, deep Web searches” and social media postings to give authorities an idea of who they are dealing with. So the next time that police pull up in front of your home, it is likely that what you have posted on Facebook will be searched. If you have said things that could be construed as “anti-government” or “anti-police”, there is a very good chance that you will have a very high “threat score” and you will be on “the red list”.


I understand that this sounds like something that comes directly out of a science fiction movie, but I assure you that it is very real. In fact, the Washington Post reported on this just the other day…

While officers raced to a recent 911 call about a man threatening his ex-girlfriend, a police operator in headquarters consulted software that scored the suspect’s potential for violence the way a bank might run a credit report.

The program scoured billions of data points, including arrest reports, property records, commercial databases, deep Web searches and the man’s social media postings. It calculated his threat level as the highest of three color-coded scores: a bright red warning.

“Beware” was created by a corporation known as “Intrado”, and police departments around the nation began using it back in 2012. When police officers using this software roll up to your home, they will instantly know which residents are on the “green list”, which are on the “yellow list”, and which are on the “red list”. Here is more from the Washington Post

As officers respond to calls, Beware automatically runs the address. The searches return the names of residents and scans them against a range of publicly available data to generate a color-coded threat level for each person or address: green, yellow or red.

Exactly how Beware calculates threat scores is something that its maker, Intrado, considers a trade secret, so it is unclear how much weight is given to a misdemeanor, felony or threatening comment on Facebook. However, the program flags issues and provides a report to the user.

In promotional materials, Intrado writes that Beware could reveal that the resident of a particular address was a war veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, had criminal convictions for assault and had posted worrisome messages about his battle experiences on social media.

Everything that you have ever done on the Internet could potentially be used to calculate your “threat score”. So if you made some ill-advised comments on Facebook or in an Internet forum five years ago, there is still probably a record of that somewhere, and “Beware” will probably find it.

The next time you get pulled over or a police officer comes to your home, things that you may have completely forgotten that you ever said may come back to haunt you. With that in mind, I would like you to read the following excerpt from an article by Matt Agorist

Imagine the following scenario: You are on your way home from work, driving down the road when you notice police lights in your rearview mirror. You are being pulled over.

As you sit there, on the shoulder, adrenaline rushing, simultaneously angry and nervous, the police officer, in his patrol car behind you, is sizing you up based on an algorithm that determines your “threat rating.”

The officer enters your license plate into a mobile application on his laptop. In a matter of seconds, this application crawls over billions of records in commercial and public databases, including all available social media engagement, recent purchases and “any comments that could be construed as offensive.” The application then determines if your “threat rating” is green, yellow, or red.

Imagine that you are one of our informed and frequent readers and understand the importance of police accountability and are unafraid to voice your entirely peaceful, yet strong opinion about police misconduct. Imagine that you left a comment on Facebook this morning about a particular officer’s misconduct; imagine that it is this particular officer who just pulled you over.

We live in a society that has become absolutely obsessed with surveillance.

A “Big Brother police state control grid” is being systematically constructed all around us, and we are being watched, tracked, monitored and controlled in hundreds of different ways.

So what can we do about this?

Is there any hope for change?

Well, John W. Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute believes that the key is grassroots activism and non-violent resistance…

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, there is only one feasible solution left to us short of fleeing the country for parts unknown: grassroots activism that strives to reform the government locally and trickles up.

Unfortunately, such a solution requires activism, engagement, vigilance, sacrifice, individualism, community-building, nullification and a communal willingness to reject the federal government’s handouts and, when needed, respond with what Martin Luther King Jr. referred to as “militant nonviolent resistance.”

That means forgoing Monday night football in order to actively voice your concerns at city council meetings, turning off the television and spending an hour reading your local newspaper (if you still have one that reports local news) from front to back, showing your displeasure by picketing in front of government offices, risking your reputation by speaking up and disagreeing with the majority when necessary, refusing to meekly accept whatever the government dictates, reminding government officials—including law enforcement—that they work for you, and working together with your neighbors to present a united front against an overreaching government.

So what do you think?

Will we ever be able to get our privacy back, or has government surveillance become too entrenched?

    That is why I do not use social media. Yes there are other ways they can gain info. But social media, is the easiest way. A little over a month ago. I had to call the paramedics. At least the cops, did not show up with them. I have heard if you are on the worst list. The cops show up on any call to your address. Paramedics, fire, anything. So perhaps, I have not made the worst list.

    • paul mullin

      You just went on their radar BIG TIME by responding to this blog. You dont think they monitor ‘crazy train’ websites like this one? LOL. You should be hearing the buzzing from the circling black helicopters, right.. about… NOW!!

      • K

        Sorry still here. Another nice new account. Has distraction proved insufficient? Now sarcasm, and maybe a little fear? The truth sure is making some people nervous.

    • You left my “like” but deleted the comment. I am guessing you actually did “google” me, Micheal.

      Oh, well. No me importa.

    • Esther7779

      you are typing into social media when commenting…do you know what social media actually is?

  • bigskygrl

    So if we were to share this on FB it could potentially come back to us? Wow, we’ve become like nazi Germany. What is the endgame here. Suppression of free speech or worse?

      Even though I think things will look very similar for Christians and Jews, very soon, we are told by the Lord not to fear those who can kill the body, but to fear the One, (Him), who has the power to cast body and soul into hell. Our worship, awe, concern, focus, trust, and actions need to be toward Him who loves us, the One who has been given all true authority in heaven and earth. We can hide in Him and stay safely in His arms, regardless of what they can do to us in this temporary little state of things.

    I does no work quite as described. That is it does not comb the web the moment the cop request the info. It works like Google in that it constantly combs the web 24×7. It then correlates all the data it finds. Then it builds or updates a database on you. The correlation process will also involve other databases on you including the police’s own databases. Finally it is able to join all the information and bring in what is missing from Facebook such your phone numbers, addresses and emails etc. The data then sits ready for instant access whenever the cop requests it. The correlation process is the smart part of the software. Unfortunately, deleting stuff from Facebook is of little use because once it is picked up from FB, it is copied to the master database and remains there forever.

  • VigilanteCaregiver

    This is why I use proxys, hack apps, and other means.

    Also why I behave myself and stay within the law, regardless.

    It’s amazing what’s still “legal”. Worse is what’s becoming legal.

    • kfilly

      I am guilty. I am on the red list. I am an effing American and not a stupid Amerikan. My religion probably also got me on their red list. As far as I concerned, they can pound sand with their lists.

    Everything that you have ever done on the Internet could potentially be used to calculate your “threat score”.

    Not if you use other computers at other places.

  • jaxon64

    Michael, just like the switch to a cashless society, this will be an easy sell to the masses because of all the upside.
    Cashless=…reduced usage of dirty, germy liquor store murders/robberies for the $20 in the cash drawer….no street market cash/drug exchange on the fly ( almost all drug purchases are done with cash)…no billions of drug cartel cash and banks laundering that cash .. no Chinese printers in Macau counterfeiting piles of is less convenient, can be lost, accidentally destroyed or stolen
    With this surveillance state and data base, they will push security, the ability to solve heinous crimes and prevent crimes that are being organized or planned. I mean, who doesn’t like it when you are watching a real crime show and the cops find a gun or the killer cut themselves and because of fingerprint or DNA databases they can nab the killer before he does it again?
    The fact that we are giving up liberty and giving massive power to agents of the state will not cross most minds. The potential for corruption and control of citizens with some “pre-crime” mumbo jumbo is almost a certainty. When did these power-crazed types ever not misuse tools like this to subjugate and beat down the populace?

    • iris

      Agree. This world is rapidly wrapping up.

      • carson

        yep 1st john 2:15-17 and john 6:29 and even john 11:25-26 and..well all the word of God. The WORLD is wrapping up, has an end date to the way’s of the flesh and devil, but those of Christ have no end date :)).

        • iris

          So true!! (:

  • DJohn1

    Computers are perfect? Since when?
    Nearest I can tell they process whatever is put into them.
    Meaning that if you have a common name like Jim Smith they have no way of accurately determining anything. And Jim is not alone.
    And that does not include all the processed garbage.
    Everything from the circus of malware, viruses, trojans, etc.
    Then you have the Microsoft thing.
    Not every computer in America is run by Microsoft but as late as 20 years ago, the computer shows had 5 acres of Microsoft compatible software to 3 booths for Apple software and maybe six tables for Linux.
    Then you have TOR. Which supposedly makes it impossible to track someone.
    Or Raspberry Pi, which is basically a $35 computer from Britain used to train programmers and for general entertainment running off your modern HDMI connection on a TV. With a wireless mouse and keyboard it is almost as good as a regular computer. Yet it takes up all the space of a credit card or a little larger.
    So everything coming off a computer onto the internet is really suspect information to begin with. You really have no idea who actually is behind the names on the internet unless you personally know them.
    So is it TRUMP on twitter or not? Probably it is, but who really knows.
    And that is just one example of what is likely and what is not.
    So for police to take much credence of what is on the internet is a lawyer’s dream case. And those lawyers sharp enough to tear that down are out there.
    The internet media is a general circus.
    I try not to call on police for any reason simply because they have a bad reputation of not being your friend. They are in the back pockets of the lawyers not the public and they are just as likely to cite you as not. As for 911 or even an ambulance, you are likely to run into a thousand dollars of charges with any ambulance call.
    So only if there is no other choice available do you want an ambulance. I suggest life and death situations might be such a cause but routinely they are in bed with the local medical emergency services and you have little choice in the matter.
    Not to say that both police and emergency services can be the only choice in some situations. Just be wary of what you are calling to help you.
    Always treat police with ultimate respect under all circumstances.
    Even when such respect is not earned.

  • K

    Ah another nice new account. Yes, we should just forget the Constitution. We should just have blind trust in cops. After all they never misidentify anyone, or raid the wrong address. So which is it? Paid to post? Or a cop wannabe.

  • Eevie

    well hell yeah they have us coded according to threat potential. They see us all as the enemy. They learn it in cop school. We are all guilty….just some more than others. :)

  • Mistanick

    For those with tyranny on their minds and in their hearts, social media where people connect with others world wide is evil one’s biggest fear. Quite often the opposite of what is obviously encouraged (get off of social media, stop voicing your opinions etc) is just what a globalist fear mongering despot wants us to do. The internet where truth can be distributed at the click of a mouse is their biggest fear and enemy.

    What do evil folks do then. They send in the trolls to disturb conversation, try to break up good thought, try to steer masses to the easy cliff of ruin.

    Michael, we should stop trying to protect our privacy with fear and trembling. That sounds strange, but it is the opposite from what the establishment media (ie: the Washington Post?) wants us to do with press releases like this. Beware and Intrado, indeed!

    That said, what we DO say should be said with wisdom and not a drunk emotion, urging mayhem for instance. Stand up for your rights, cast light on darkness, and resist the enemy, don’t run from him and he shall flee.

  • MaxRockatansky33

    I bet the green ones are illegal aliens, terrorists and criminals. Everything now is upside down. In red are a citizens with a common sense.

    • iris

      (: thought that, too.

  • Louis Charles

    Oh, come on, people. When are we going to wake up and elect sheriffs who will join CSPOA, who will hire NOTHING BUT OATH KEEPERS, and then utilize the “deputiz’m” plan? If you allow communists, socialists and fascists to run you city and county governments, YOU GET WHAT YOU DESERVE.

  • Paul Prichard

    How about the citizen gives the government a red, yellow or green depending on well it serves the public ?

  • Randy

    Here’s the key to tyranny, it’s this little known or used thing called EDUCATION!! Educate as many people as you can about how EVERYTHING you deal with, come into contact with every day, is connected to some kind of a scam, that is if it’s not a scam all on its own.
    Tell people about The Three Magic Questions and talk about them often. Just to save you who are reading this the effort of having to do your research to find out what they are, I am listing them now. What is the EXACT AMOUNT of fraud that ANY man or woman has the right to commit? What is the EXACT AMOUNT of fraud that ANY man or woman has an actual obligation to endure? What is the BASIC PREMISE that is being operated off of, in the instant case? Those simple questions lay bare the FACT that you are being defrauded on a daily basis by The Matrix and its operators. Once you expose the fact that the legal system is attempting to defraud you, that is your EXIT POINT from it, from The Matrix. Why is that? See the second question above, and if you still don’t get it, see question number 1. And if you STILL don’t get it, forget that I ever said or wrote anything at all, because you’re just a consuming drone who can turn into an Agent in a heartbeat.
    The various police forces are ONLY a feeder mechanism for the legal system which is set up for the purpose of ripping you off! The only justice that happens there is purely by accident! Read my papers The Scam of the Legal System, The Holes in the Legal System and The Legal System Equals Gambling, which can be found in various places on the internet.

    “Any society who gives up liberty for perceived safety, deserves neither liberty nor safety”, Benjamin Franklin.

    Since he has been 100% correct throughout history, I prefer not give up freedom for perceived safety. You are just a mindless fool for believing this is done for your protection. This is just a partial list of places that fell down that path: Nazi Germany, Stalanist Russia, Mao’s China, and Native Americans (after they were disarmed by the US government). Yes, the US government killed approximate 100 million Native Americans after disarming them. Also, read the book 1984 because you live in 1984.

  • Michael Moulds

    Do they have a “non- participant” list?

  • It is too late to effect a resolution to the described “problem”.

    We are on the eve of a totalitarian police state regime where “crimes” of “tobacco use” and “alcohol use” will draw the death penalty for a second offense.

    We will be forced into religion that is diametrically 180 degrees opposite of the tenets which the Great Creator intended.

    Many of our homes already have been “marked” with an invisible “check” that can be found in by peeking into the infrared end of the spectrum.

    A simple night vision monocular will allow you to see the marking on the ground near where your driveway hits the street, normally next to your mailbox on the curb.

    The system coding indicates that you have been determined to be in one of four categories. The “marks” range from a single mark for those that are aligned to and actively working with the NWO to four slashes for those of us that are considered to be known dissidents and patriots.

    They are going to be coming for the citizen militias, first, and those of us known to possess weaponry shortly thereafter.

    There are already millions of NWO troops here in underground facilities that are actively functioning as what the Bible’s Book of Revelations refers to as the “watchers”, that are made invisible by “phased array optics” camouflage, now in its tenth generation. The 21st century camouflage in effect puts the wearer in to the 5th dimension rendering them invisible to those of us stuck in the third dimension.

    The CIA has constructed giant cages over many towns and cities in the west and, once turned on by an electrical charge, will holographically entrap us within its confines. These confines are completely invisible to the naked eye, and virtually invisible to the digital lens except in dew point conditions as well as certain lighting conditions where the sunlight hits it below the angle of refraction, of 49 degrees or less.

    The plasticultured silicone material that they’re constructed out of possesses optical properties that when the above conditions are met, return to the camera lens as a spectral or “rainbow” hue.

    These cages are actually the “rainbow” that Dorothy sings about in the prophetic “Wizard of Oz”, which is a long range foretelling story in which the CIA are the flying monkeys, and the wicked witch is representative of the Antichrist.

    The scarecrow, cowardly lion, and the tin man are representative of the troops of the NWO. They are not friends of Dorothy, but only accompany her on her journey.

    Toto is representative of the Architect of the Universe, which when you think about him, hits dead on, evidenced by the fact that he is always there, never bothers anyone, not in any bodies business, minds his own business, but comes immediately when called.

    The wizard is representative of Charron, who is the boatman across the river Styx.

    When you consider the flying monkeys, they are malevolent but ineffective in the big picture. They pretty much blend back into the woodwork, once the wicked witch is dispatched.

    And, I am Dorothy, the righteous underdog, who vanquishes the witch.

    The thing is, that I have befriended, amused, and otherwise entertained the troops that are watching us all, once I came to understand who they were. I have lent them the true understanding of the nature of what is required to ascend, as well as given them the knowledge to turn soldiers into warriors, and warriors into kamikaze. I have shown them that it is not about religion, but that it is about finding understanding.

    I have shown them that the CIA are nothing more than malevolent nerds that got beat up in the ninth grade and went right home and began to plot their plan to make everyone pay for their getting beat up. I have exposed the CIA as nothing but idiots that have too much money.

    Just like the tin man, scarecrow and lion are aligned to Dorothy in the Oz prophecy, in the other veiled prophetic story that foretells of the battle of the Armageddon, the Beatles “Yellow Submarine” the NWO troops are represented as the “mini meanies” and the blue meanies are representative of the CIA.

    In that telling, I am represented as the nowhere man. The nowhere man is not human but rather an intellectual who is covered in brown fur that wears a man mask, whose name is “Jeremy H Boob” which are the same initials as mine.

    The animal that the nowhere man is portrayed as is reference to my being a true “Son of Seth, or a nephilim, descended from an angel. Just as every one of my contemporaries, Abraham, Moses, and Noah, were.

    While it is thought that the nephilim were the object of Gods malevolence and destroyed in the flood of Noah, they were not.

    Ironically, the Old Man is neither malevolent, nor is he down on the Nephilim, when you know that there have been many unrealized Sons of Seth that have made good in our history, including the archetypal man, Adam, my contemporaries, Abraham, Moses and Noah, Enoch JFK, JFK, jr., NapoleonII, Erwin Rommel, Winston Churchill, Adelei Stevenson and Grandsire Bhishma Patimah. In the same dynasty that I am the last avatar of, which is the House of Anjou, there have been Narada, Jacques de Molay, and oliver Hazard Perry.

    In the Yellow Submarine foretelling, the mini meanies are aligned to the nowhere man, and if you check screen shots of the movie, you can see that the mini meanies are always behind the nowhere man, and not the blue meanies.

    The reason I have the extensive understanding of all this is that I am the true and real biblical prophet for the end of the Age of Man. I, like my contemporaries, do in fact have direct communication with the Creator, on a continual basis. In other words, I “walk with God”.

    So, in any case, because of the public apathy that has been and remains the standard, the things I have been shown and attempted to relate to all of you, who could not or did not want to see any of it when I tried to alert you, it is entirely too late to cause any real effect to the outcome.

    I tried for years to get people to pay attention to what I had to show you all, only to be greeted with overall apathy, and consequently, have lost friends who now refer to me as “Jeff and the tree people”. The “tree people” are the troops who I befriended and while I am not aligned to them, they are aligned to me.

    I have been shown that somewhere over three million of them will find the understanding to ascend to heaven when it is their time to move through the “bright light at the end of the tunnel”.
