These New Police Radars Can 'See' Inside Your Home (Video)
Posted by Jake on January 21 2015
Bad news for privacy fans. The police are getting their hands on a new piece of handheld technology designed to peer through walls. This new kind of highly sensitive radar can detect movement as subtle as breathing from up to 50 feet away through solid concrete. Obviously, this is a powerful tool that will likely save the lives of many officers on duty, but it does raise some ethical concerns regarding the fourth amendment. As the article states, "the problem isn't that the police have this. The issue isn't the technology; the issue is always about how you use it and what the safeguards are." 

The devices cost a mere $6,000 per unit and at least 50 law enforcement agencies have already begun rolling them out. So just keep that in mind the next time you're treating yourself like an amusement park in the safety and comfort of your home!
