Real-time update, this from their FAQ:

Q: So who's making money off this?

A: In short, no one. MiniTru, LLC. is a non-profit organization created to find modern solutions to the timeless threats to democracy and freedom. We are funded by a variety of organizations, including but not limited to CCTV UK, Minutemen Civil Defense Corps, XE, and the Centre for Defence and International Security Studies.

So what? All well-meaning organizations, right? Incorrect. Xe is the name that Erik Prince chose to re-brand Blackwater with, after that particular name became too sullied in the media. Yes, they're the private mercenary company that the U.S. was contracting to do all sorts of dirty deeds in Iraq and Afghanistan, murdering, raping, running drugs and weapons. Why would Blackwater, excuse me, Xe be interested in funding such a project as this? It's a free app, and Blackwater/Xe exists only to line Prince's pockets -- he's a pure capitalist, as mercenaries tend to be.

This means that my initial suspicion was correct -- this is being funded by the United States government or by the U.N. Look at their web page, and Snapscouts is clearly aimed at children, though I don't know how many children own the expensive phones running Google's Android OS. And there's another connection -- the ubiquitous Google, always looking for new ways to collect information on people. This is so incredibly Orwellian, a government funded project to acclimate children to spying on those around them, turning it simultaneously into a solemn duty and a fun game.

SnapScouts was designed and developed for children to use, before they form stereotypes of other people. They're the perfect reporters, unbiased and unprejudiced by media concepts.

The government is brainwashing the children of America in preparation to use them against the American patriot movement. There is no question that that is what this verminous Snapscouts program is a part of. Anonymous reporting of anything that the "perfect reporters," children, might even be suspicious of being suspicious. Tagging the suspicious people in the images with their names, if they are known to the pint-size spies. This is leading down a most dangerous path.


  1. "Georgie", "Winston O'Brien", "MiniTru". There are too many references to 1984 (George Orwell) for this not to be a hoax.

    You are probably correct - I tried to google more information and came up empty on some of the sponsors. Thanks for pointing this out, although I can see this happening even in the good ole' us of a.
