I'm a big fan of public surveillance, especially if accessible to the public with cause. I know privacy advocates hate this, but it seems like a net win to me. In your private residence you have privacy but in public E should have video record.

As far as I know, many privacy advocacy groups are in favor of police body cameras (I know the ACLU is, if they're accompanied with a suitable framework and process).


As long as the resulting record is truly public, I agree.

If only some people have meaningful access, they get tremendous power over everyone else. Which is the real problem with surveillance as it has usually been done.
