    Default How to Find Out About Video Surveillance Programs

    My question involves police conduct in the State of: Upper Midwest
    Is anyone aware of a clandestine, or possibly experimental video surveillance program that may have emerged during the "Satanic Panic" back in the mid to late eighties and early nineties?

    I was around in the late 80s and early 90s and if there was any kind of “satanic panic” it was quite well hidden as I never heard anything about it. A new conspiracy theory pops up like once a day. Fun as they may be to talk about for some folks, the fact is that very few of them have any basis in reality.

    Ditto. It's a mystery to me and many others.

    Okay. Let's assume you're correct and the media was foisting this message of Satanic and cult activity here and there, and law enforcement may have admitted they were looking into a few cases that they believed had the potential of being such a thing. Your point being ... ????

    As a note, I have been in and around law enforcement since the 1980s and I have yet to hear of a serious "Satanic" type case. I suspect that what attention this flash in the pan enjoyed was a construct of the media and a lot of errant speculation based upon drunken college and heavy metal types screwing around.

    No. No there was not.

    This Rep thought to propose legislation back in '87. https://www.congress.gov/bill/100th-...-bill/1895?r=2 Didn't go anywhere.

    This was the article that brought it to my attention, then I simply googled "Satanic Panic"https://theintercept.com/2017/06/20/...ever-happened/
