Amazon To Use Banned Chinese Firm's Orwellian Thermal Cameras To Scan Workers

A new Reuters investigation published Wednesday has exposed an Amazon-China bombshell, but which perhaps should come as little surprise. Chinese tech utilized in the communist state's own deeply controversial repressive surveillance network monitoring citizens for signs of 'dissent' will now come to an Amazon warehouse near you:

Amazon.com Inc has bought cameras to take temperatures of workers during the coronavirus pandemic from a firm the United States blacklisted over allegations it helped China detain and monitor the Uighurs and other Muslim minorities, three people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

China’s Zhejiang Dahua Technology Co Ltd shipped 1,500 cameras to Amazon this month in a deal valued close to $10 million, one of the people said. At least 500 systems from Dahua - the blacklisted firm - are for Amazon’s use in the United States, another person said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised here; it was only a question of when, not if, such technology would find its way to the USA.
