The placebo pill called CCTV

Recently, I noticed that the tram I was taking from work to the train station, had more than 10 ceiling cams installed. That’s one camera every 2 meters. Oh, did my feeling of security grow instantly.

Meanwhile, the UK recognizes that installing “Closed Circuit TV” cameras is just a waste of money. As the Guardian titles, “CCTV boom has failed to slash crime, say police“.

Meanwhile, my commuting costs will increase because german transportation companies think playing “1984” was a better use for my money than improving my traveling experience.
