I tell ya, folks -- we're living in more and more of a
'surveillance society' every day.
Via USA Today.
Surveillance cameras aimed at government buildings, train platforms and intersections here might soon be required at corner taverns and swanky nightclubs.
Mayor Richard Daley wants to require bars open until 4 a.m. to install security cameras that can identify people entering and leaving the building. Other businesses open longer than 12 hours a day, including convenience stores, eventually would have to do the same.
Daley's proposed city ordinance adds a dimension to security measures installed after the Sept. 11 attacks.
The proliferation of security cameras especially if the government requires them in private businesses troubles some civil liberties advocates.
