New York officials say they could stop attacks like the attempted Times Square car bomb by expanding a controversial surveillance system so sensitive that it will pick up even suspicious behavior.
Bull patoooie. More cameras, even super sensitive ones, will just allow for more camera angles of any given event, but they won't prevent anything. That's total B.S.
London has thousands and thousands of cameras everywhere, and not a single one of them helped to prevent the subway bombing. But they all got really good pictures.
"Suspicious behaviour"? That means every erratic-driving cabbie in NYC will get the nod and the (twenty minutes later) SWAT response. New Yorkers will just love it.
This is just another grab at more power and more control by government... Using fear as a lever.
