A Bad Idea: Police Surveillance of Downtown Seattle

I often disagree with Robert Jamieson, but this time he's right on: building a video surveillance system for downtown Seattle is a bad, bad idea.

They don't help prevent or solve crimes, and they create huge potential violations of civil liberties.

Seattle should be smart enough to nip this bad idea in the bud.  Where is the leadership from the City Council?
