Anthrax? The F.B.I. Yawns. And on street crime prevention

| No Comments

The F.B.I.'s bumbling before 9/11 is water under the bridge
. But the bureau's lackadaisical ineptitude in pursuing the anthrax killer continues to threaten America's national security by permitting him to strike again or, more likely, to flee to Iran or North Korea.

The article sounds like something from an X-Files episode. Rouge people in the government, safe houses, military connections to domestic bio weapons s and all.

Street lighting is up to four times as effective in preventing street crimes as CCTV. 9 months ago a lot of people talked about having tv surveillance of public areas; this article is more about how bad idea that is. (It doesn't even work for fighting petty street crime...)
