Regardless of their purpose, no one voted to have them installed and they have the capability to basically track movements along any road larger than a residential street.
Very scary stuff, camera's and phone taps - we followed the UK's lead on the camera deal. That A-hole Bloomberg is installing them all over the city. Did you see that horrible clip of the 78 year old Ct. man being hit by a car? That was taken by a the same type of camera, and guess what? They have the whole incident on tape and still haven't caught the scumbag that hit the guy! So much for these camera's usefulness in solving crime? The resolution isn't even good enough to distinguish the license plate! The bigger question is how do local governments get away with this obvious violation of our rights? The answer is that none of this shi$ comes up for a vote, therefore we ARE NO LONGER A GOVERNMENT FOR OR BY THE PEOPLE.... Homeland Security is the catch-all excuse for invading our civil and constitutional rights.
