    In the United States you have no presumed right to privacy in public places. Cameras are acceptable and used in a lot of places. Hell you can get a ticket for speeding or running a light from JUST a picture of your license plate at intersections and listed speed monitoring areas.

    More people = less privacy.

    This is a trend I expect to see grow more common over time.

    I don't see any problem with it. Don't do anything in public you don't want anyone to know about and it won't be a problem.

    Hmm... who can film? Anyone? I guess so. Why not a private corp. set up cameras all over a city and stream it live online - could be an interesting site/channel. No more Private Eyes, just people at home watching to see if their wife/husband's car really is at work haha

    More people=more poverty=more crime=less privacy.

    Scarborough is huge part of the GTA (might even be the largest), so naturally there would be more crime happening in that location. I'm still surprised they're just doing this now. :lol:

    British police may remotely hack into personal computers and e-mail without warrant
    Posted by Rob Beschizza, January 4, 2009 7:54 AM | permalink
    Britain's Home Office will allow police to remotely hack into anyone's computer without a warrant. From the Times:

    The hacking is known as “remote searching”. It allows police or MI5 officers who may be hundreds of miles away to examine covertly the hard drive of someone’s PC at his home, office or hotel room.
    Material gathered in this way includes the content of all e-mails, web-browsing habits and instant messaging.



    The move follows a green light from the European Union, and also permits British police to access U.K. residents' computers at the behest of investigators from other countries. This could allow the British to conduct searches on behalf of local agencies bound by more restrictive policies, sharing the results back with them.

    British Study Says CCTV Cameras Don’t Deter Crime
    LONDON (AP) - The web of security cameras monitoring Britain’s streets, stations and shopping centers has done little to reduce crime or make people feel safer, according to a government study to be released Thursday.

    The government, which spent 170 million pounds (US$325 million, euro250 million) on CCTV cameras between 1998 and 2003, said it had no plans to fund any more.

    Video cameras have blossomed in Britain since the 1990s. An estimated 4.2 million cameras now observe the country’s 60 million people going about their everyday business, from getting on a bus to lining up at the bank to driving around London. It’s widely estimated that the average Briton is scrutinized by 300 cameras a day.
