New York is in danger of becoming a total surveillance city
Thousands of volunteers helped map surveillance cameras that the NYPD could use to track people using facial recognition.

uhm why though? They never give a good reason why it’s necessary.

It’s to protect property. If you wanted to protect humans, you would take preventative measures and staff and train the police properly instead of giving them more tools.

Funnily, their weird tax office and policies make business owners leave the city, so… not really sure if there’s any success in public policy in NY currently.

This appears to be one of the hottest market trends with China having the most extensive public surveillance system, but we may assume other regions to gain ground.
