These cameras were fine when placed in high crime areas to watch the usual suspects killing each other. Now Mayor Richard M. Daley has promised that they will be installed on every block in the city.
Imagine the city bureaucrats in possession of video showing the only kind of action that goes on in Chicago’s safest neighborhoods, cheating spouses. The only benefit of these cameras would be to provide incumbent politicians and bureaucrats a way to spy on their rivals and potential rivals. Of course the taxpayers get to pick up the tab.
The nosy bastards running the City of Chicago should be forced to hire PIs for this spying out of their own pockets.
