New Camera Surveillance System Bears Immediate Fruit

We previously blogged here about the growing trend of cities putting suveillance cameras in public places to detect crime.  This week, Baltimore rolled out its new public surveillance system, and while the Mayor was performing a public demonstration of the system during the unveiling ceremony, a man was witnessed stuffing his cigar with pot and was promptly arrested.  I suppose the Mayor couldn't have dreamed of a better PR event to support his $2 million expenditure.  Story . . .  [Mark Godsey]
