Ogden City Surveillance Blimp sign now

Dear Mayor Godfrey and Ogden City Council Members --

It has come to our attention that Ogden is planning on deploying a surveillance blimp to scan the streets of Ogden for suspicious activity in the effort to control crime levels. The blimp would have top-of-the-line cameras complete with night vision that could monitor citizen activity day and night.

We, the undersigned, are concerned that surveillance of this level is being considered in the United States of America, most especially in our own state of Utah.

History is clear that governments, including totalitarian regimes, always come up with reasons that sound good to the citizens -- including fighting crime or terrorism -- for implementing measures of extreme surveillance.

While we believe that Ogden City itself isn't likely to use the information from blimp surveillance inappropriately, our fear is that this blimp would set a precedent for other cities in Utah and America. Blimps could be purchased for use in other cities. Who knows what kind of people would have access to the data gathered from these blimps, or how they would use it.

In America, it is the citizens' job to check governments and their actions. In this spirit, we submit this petition for your serious consideration.

Please do your part to keep America free. Vote for freedom and liberty and vote against this blimp.
