D.C. to expand surveillance camera program

Even though DC faces a budget crisis and there are radical inequities in our public education system, the city is looking to expand its surveillance program. As I have mentioned before, there are strong evidence that CCTV surveillance doesn’t lower the crime rate and doesn’t add to the public good. Hopefully, the city council will put a stop to this but I doubt it will.

  1. I imagine that there is some kind of ‘Post hoc, ergo propter hoc’ logic happening here, drawing parallels to the low crime rate in, say, the UK, where pervasive CCTV surveillance is a way of life.

    ‘Cos, you know, the radical difference in gun control and availability of social services and programs couldn’t possibly be a contributing factor as well.
