Today, I give you a frightening story about free speech censorship and watchlists just in time for the countdown to Halloween.
A recent article in The Tennessean reveals how the Williamson County School District (WCS) is monitoring students' free speech and social media posts.
The WCS recently implemented a "threat surveillance program" called Gaggle, which is so invasive and frightening one would be hard-pressed not to call it a "gag" program that limits students' free speech.
When the WCS was asked to reveal specific details about what Gaggle and authorities are monitoring students' speech for, they claimed they could not reveal any details "due to federal family protection laws."
Public & private schools are joining the ranks of alphabet soup surveillance agencies like DHS, the FBI, and the NSA claiming they cannot reveal surveillance details.
