“There’s a more mature acceptance in the U.K. of the tradeoff between civil liberties and security,” former CIA agent Mike Baker
British authorities prepping for the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton say they will likely use random stop-and-searches, closely monitored closed-circuit cameras spread throughout London and “pre-emptive policing,” which means police can arrest someone for a terror charge -- even planning or inciting a terror act -- before they have all the evidence related to it, to enforce order and maintain safety. Those “pre-charge” detentions can be based on a range of spying methods including phone taps, electronic surveillance and old-fashioned snooping.
I could pick someone up on the street in London and track them pretty much wherever they go. It’s a very impressive capability, and we’re nowhere near that.”
Baker said the main difference between U.S. and U.K. security isn’t necessarily what is done, but how it’s portrayed
“We’re not necessarily as bold about describing things, and we have a few more hurdles,” Baker said. “But our goals are still the same."

I didn't know lasers worked on cameras.
I read somewhere you can make a cheap crap laser fairly powerful by burning out the resister with a soldering iron.
I'll have to check that out.
