Remember when Britain instituted CCTV’s to watch and listen to pedestrians, and then made it possible for police to yell at them? Remember what their reasoning was? It was so the streets would be safer. Well, mission far from accomplished.
On the street with over 100 cameras watching it, the crime rate is far from low. There have been 430 offenses committed on Big Brother Avenue, er, Holloway Road over the past six months including serious assaults, robberies and burglaries.
Having all those cameras actually makes things harder for police because they have to watch footage from every single camera. Duh.
Way to go, guys, way to make the streets safer for you and me.
