I agree punkdoc. Some people hate CCTV. I think if you are not doing anything wrong, whats the problem? People with hoodies up that are obviously avoiding cameras come under suspicion. I dont look at certain sites, or send dubious emails inciting terror. I would rather the security services can check out the terrorists. I feel safer knowing everone is scanned going through an airport. My underwater camera gear regularly gets swabbed because it is unusual. I allow extra time for the airport.
I do think that if that had happened in a UK city, we do not have the hospital capacity to cope, nor enough police and army to put on the streets as fast as the French did. The curfew to clear the streets to allow security services and emergency vehicles to get through worked. I wonder if it would here?
