Big Brother soon to be watching hippies, commies, and hobos

The people of the Republic of Cambridge, the most freedom loving city in the country (unless you are a smoker or a republican), are in a tizzy over plans to install 8 city surveillance cameras. Residents are concerned that the cameras will be used to spy on citizens as opposed to as a tool for emergency responders.

Cambridge police and fire representatives responded to those fears by assuring everyone that the cameras suck.

I don't think you can see any people in the street in great details," said [Cambridge Fire Chief Gerald] Reardon. "If we were being graded on surveillance [with these cameras], we would get an 'F.'"

I for one hope that the cameras do not suck. I hope they have high resolution cameras and post them in Central and Inman Squares. I think the hobo-cam could replace the void in my life present ever since work blocked the puppy cam.
