Houston PD Installs Surveillance Grid, Gets Body Cams

from Infowars:

2014 is shaping up to be the Year of Surveillance for the Houston P.D, both a good and bad thing for the public.

In addition to outfitting police with body cams, the city is moving to add nearly 180 costly surveillance cameras to the downtown area.

The cameras will be pointed at “public areas around downtown, stadiums and the theater district,” according to the Houston Chronicle, and will set the city back by $18 million in federal funds, with another $5 million to spare.

However, as the Chronicle points out, studies have shown surveillance cameras rarely, if ever, lead to lower crime.

    Man, those are some SPENDY video cams. Can we tell that government is involved? If this was being done by a business, those cams, video recorders, techs, and installation would be half of the cost… or less.

    “However, as the Chronicle points out, studies have shown surveillance cameras rarely, if ever, lead to lower crime.”

    Maybe not, but then, that’s not why video cams are installed these days. They are installed not to reduce crime but to provide evidence of it that is admissible in court. Video cams do that. But, not to worry. Tech marches on. It won’t be long before there are devices that anyone can buy or build that spoof video cams such that only the person’s outline is recorded.

    Surveillance cameras rarely lead to lower crime???? What a bunch of bullsh*t that is. Again, infowhores is caught demonizing law enforcement in order to pay their operating costs. There’s isn’t even an author listed to credit the article to. That’s how utterly dumb this article is. The fact is that while surveillance cameras may not actually prevent crime from occurring, they do offer deterence and thereby keep crime down, but most importantly, lead to arrests and convictions of criminals that would have otherwise gone free. It happens all the time.
