There is a new technology being tried out in Europe. It uses technology to detect homemade bomb-makers by sensing chemicals in the air and in sewers in urban areas. It is sponsored by the European Union.
According to an article on Fox Business, the technology works thus:
The sewer-based sensing system would use electrochemical water- and air-sampling to detect certain chemicals typically used for home-made bombs as they travel through the waste stream in urban areas.

One wonders whether the NSA isn’t already doing this in the US . . .
Really? You need to wonder if our own government is spying on us this way? Of course it is! All I can say is, “666”. Check the Revelation to John, the Apostle, in the Bible. We are very close to the Antichrist, the Devil, and the False Prophet (Islam, perhaps?) running the New World Order.
First let me say that the concept intrigues me. What is of more interest to me is how reliable such a detection method will be at developing verifiable probable cause reliably as opposed to merely giving the pretense of it so that the government can have another excuse to violate people’s rights. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for decisively defeating terrorists but I think we need to be careful with technology like this so as not to create just another method to be used by the government in wanton spying on the citizenry. With the amount of pollutants, chemicals, medications, fecal wastes bacteria, methane and other substances in sewage it makes me wonder just how reliable such a methodology will be in actual use. Hopefully it will work the great majority of the times it is used, without false positives or false negatives, and they will be able to target and terminate the threats without error.
All the best,
