NYC Police Comm'r: Privacy Is 'Off the Table' After Boston Bombs 508

Posted by timothy

An anonymous reader writes "New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly thinks that now is a great time to install even more surveillance cameras hither and yon around the Big Apple. After the Boston Marathon bombing, the Tsarnaev brothers were famously captured on security camera footage and thereby identified. That just may soften up Americans to the idea of the all-seeing glass eye. 'I think the privacy issue has really been taken off the table,' Kelly gloats."

    Primus promulgatione!

    First post!

    Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium.

    This is a latin maxim which Wikipedia renders that as "I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery"
    Another rendering might be "I'd choose dangerous liberty over peaceful servitude."

    Quiescite. Non vult ad comment in quibusdam legitur stultus senex valde, verborum usus, nemo amplius. Recentiores linguae experiri scribere volutpat.

    This is this guy's own latin. It is loosely translated "Shut up. I want to comment to people who read a very stupid, old language used by no one anyway. Newer languages have people who actually write in them."

APL is a write-only language. I can write programs in APL, but I can't read any of them. -- Roy Keir
