Yesterday the SLOG wrote about the “unaccounted for” city surveillance cameras at 23rd & Cherry that popped up on monitors during a tour by city council members and the ACLU.
While they may have been a surprise to those parties, they shouldn’t be a surprise to CDNews readers who have been around for a while. We got all of the details on them last summer and wrote two long articles:
Note that at the time of the first story, our poll showed that only 8% of residents were opposed to the concept.
The issue was also discussed a couple months later on HugeAssCity.com (written by a CD resident)
The surveillance cameras have come under scrutiny recently, with the ACLU calling for the installations to be removed. According to the reporting from our friends at CHS, the city council is considering a set of options that range from expanding the program to shutting it all down and removing the equipment.
