The DHS want online users to report people with anti-government views

The U.S. government are planning to spend over $1 million of taxpayer’s money on a new initiative to encourage people to report their neighbours online if they spot them doing anything “suspicious”.

The campaign encourages internet users to report potential online threats, and has been modelled on the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign initiated after the 9/11 attacks.

Critics fear the scheme will target those with “anti-government” views.

But while the campaign may seem like a positive step toward combating terrorism, it provides yet another opportunity for the government to target its critics.

According to fiscal 2017 budget documents released last week, the Department of Homeland Security is requesting funds to develop a public service awareness (PSA) campaign similar to the one that was first debuted in New York City in 2002 and went national in 2010, which would be placed under the Office of Partnership and Engagement. Of the $1 million requested, $94,000 would be the full-time salary for whoever is hired to run the program, while the remaining money would be used to accomplish the goals of the program.
