Hamsterdamcam: Comunity Operated Survailance

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 4 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "Surveillance cameras are nothing new, and usually considered part of an overly intrusive "big brother" government. However, one community in Jacksonville, FL is now setting up a network of privately operated and funded surveillance cameras. Images from the cameras are streamed at set times (weekend nights). The experiment, which uses the tag-line "The Wire meets the Truman Show" is trying to document rampant crime in this part of Jacksonville and the ineffective actions of law enforcement. Each week "highlight reels" are posted to UStream and YouTube. So far the group captured a car jacking, a prostitute providing service right next to a busy road and more."
