UK law enforcement officials are thinking about letting the general public upload videos of crimes they’ve captured on their cellphones to a special crime-fighting website. Do they really think this will help? Maybe it will. They’re already living in a surveillance society so they’re used to the government watching their every move everywhere they go. They’re also probably used to all the ridiculous anti-terror signs telling them to spy on each other and dig through each others’ trash looking for evidence of evildoing… Why not instruct everyone to turn cameras on each other? It’s the next logical step.
So my question is: what happens if the crime in question is being committed by a policeman? Think they’ll appreciate that, especially amongst London’s thuggish cops? It’s probably a great way to get a “special visit” in the middle of the night.
