Mayor outlines elaborate camera network for city

“Thousands of surveillance cameras will be linked — and authorities will be alerted to crimes and terrorist acts.”

One of these occurs in Chicago all the time, and will continue to occur whether we have cameras or not. The other is more … theoretical. I’m not saying it can’t happen, but I’m not sure it should be the primary concern. I dunno. I guess I can see the need for some cameras but 2000?

Anyway, I’m glad our schools now have enough money and we can lower our taxes no wait…. I know, we’ll use the money we saved by destroying Meigs!.
