Miami to Install Street Cameras

In an article that has only appeared in El Nuevo Herald as far as I know, it appears that the city of Miami is set to purchase and install cameras and several public locations. They would be used as an anti-terrorism tool through monitoring of crowds during organized events, as well as for traffic monitoring.

I would be more excited about this if the cameras were used to catch red-light runners, but I guess that's not the intended plan.

The ACLU, as the article states, is firmly against the camera installations as can be expected.

I don't have time to translate the article, but here's the link for Spanish readers and more adventurous types out there.
