Quote:On Monday, the Atlanta City Council approved a measure to network and monitor thousands of public and privately owned security cameras throughout Atlanta.

The cameras and images will be part of a new multi-million dollar video integration center, designed to compile and analyze footage from the network..

To start, images from as many as 500 cameras -- some city-owned and some private -- are expected to flow into the center, providing images from Piedmont Park to Underground Atlanta. The center will use software that can identify "suspicious" behavior and allow monitors to quickly deploy public safety personnel. The software is also capable of pinpointing where gunshots originate from.

The center is being built by a $2.6 million federal grant from the Department of Homeland Security and the Justice Department. The Atlanta Police Foundation – which funds the camera network operated by the Midtown Blue, a private security agency -- is also raising money to operate the center. The city has not determined yet how much it will cost to operate the center annually, but the Council is committed to establishing virtually blanket video monitoring of the city....http://www.ajc.com/news/atlanta/atlanta-...24743.html

Another major US population center falls in line to this ever increasing trend. Sleep safe Atlantians.

What ğkking good would that do? They aren't putting cameras in the crime-ridden parts of the city. The locals would just steal the cameras. Hell, there are areas where the police don't even go. Just another way to put constraints on honest people.

ğck them.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
