The Surveillance-State

"The dominant, resounding cry in media and politics seems to be clamoring for more cameras, but last week, the Washington Examiner's Tim Carney argued that more cameras could mean less control and safety, not more. "Give the government eyes on every street corner, and you mostly aid the ability of law enforcement to track us without public cooperation, warrants or legal paperwork," he wrote. "You're never going to know where all our cameras are," the mayor said at today's press conference." (thanks Amir)
