Hartford hit and run tape

Maybe the police surveillance camera tape (see below post) showing psychopaths racing down the wrong side of the street hitting and paralyzing a 78 year old man will result in them being caught and convicted. Let’s hope so. If that camera wasn’t there, there would probably be little chance of them being caught.

A surveillance tape is only useful if someone watches it, and only if something that needs to be watched occurs. Do we have too many cameras watching everything we do. Probably. But in this case, it’s a good thing the camera was there.

  1. David Brin has a few interesting things to say about this (http://www.metroactive.com/papers/metro/02.06.97/cover/brin1-9706.html) . I’ve read what he’s said in a few articles but really need to get my hands on The Transparent Society one of these days…
