Chicago – now with even more Surveillance goodness

I especially like the last paragraph, where Smith talks about the “challenge” of teaching the computer to recognize suspicious behavior – expect false alarm after false alarm, with innocent people getting charged left and right.

And Chicago isn’t the only one either – here’s what they’re doing in Cleveland (article isn’t there for free anymore – so I bought it from their archives.  See how much I love you, readers!)
