The successful — and massive — law enforcement effort to obtain public video to help identify the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing shows the need for more government video surveillance cameras, says one congressman. Perhaps drones, too, says a senator.
There are already government closed-circuit TV systems in cities like Boston, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., a member of both the House Homeland Security and Intelligence committees, said the nation needs even more video cameras in public places.

I want more cameras on everyone. Especially me. That way, I hope they can catch me getting killed by some psycho nut job. And I know I will keep my P's and Q's in order all the more because of it...

Why don't they just get out their list of illegals who overstayed their visa's and pay each and everyone a visit?
Why don't they secure our borders?
Oh, that might fix a problem.
As far as cameras in public - doesn't every idiot out there have a cell phone and spend all their time making videos of everything? I don't get that - I refuse to have a cell phone. I hate answering my land-line.
Just wait - what they really need is your picture, like in the national ID's - so they can readily identify you on all the CCTV's -and then everyone's DNA on computer list - they were taking and keeping every baby born in the state of MN - until someone sued.
That's coming too.
