Little Brother is watching

I've always been opposed to putting video cameras all over the place. I believe that a system which puts its citizens under constant surveillance is inherently wrong, and more importantly, is a slippery slope to even more invasive observation, whose logical extrapolation can only be to the creation of a totalitarian state. This simply cannot be allowed to happen, regardless of benefits, perceived or otherwise.

Linked on boingboing is an interesing page which collects abuses of surveillance cameras. Some of it is amusing (cops zooming in on hot chicks as they walk down the street), and some of it is just plain sick (a guy in a school filming kids in the school locker room and keeping copies at home).
