Do surveillance cameras make the city safer? (opinion)
"San Francisco is the latest city to succumb to the siren song of Big Brother technology. The announcement of a 90-day pilot program to post two video surveillance cameras in the Western Addition is a well-intentioned but ultimately misguided response to the problem of street crime. High-tech cameras sacrifice precious privacy while providing very little in return in the way of added safety. In a city that has long prided itself on its dedication to civil liberties, this is a disheartening turn of events."

Owners of vehicles that fail to stop for red lights at the intersections will have their license plates photographed and will later receive a ticket in the mail. Nixon criticizes the procedure because the responsibility of the ticket falls on the owner of the vehicle, no matter who is driving at the time of the violation."

Watching out for the right things (editorial)
"Is the argument for surveillance cameras on the streets of Long Island any stronger since the terrorist bombings in London? Suffolk Legis. Jon Cooper (D-Lloyd Harbor) says that cameras allowed police in London to identify the bombers and to plaster pictures of others involved in a botched second attempt across the United Kingdom. Locally, he thinks surveillance would be useful for apprehending criminals in places where "gangs, drugs and rapists terrorize the community." But, just as proposals for cameras in Riverhead and Hempstead have run into opposition, Cooper's bill has been stalled in committee since March. Opponents include Legis. Allan Binder (R-Huntington), who says, "It's an incredible invasion of privacy ... we are not talking about subways or national security.""

"To our dismay, the National Intelligence Service yesterday admitted it had systematically carried out illegal wiretapping under the Kim Dae-jung government. It has thus far asserted that no illegal eavesdropping had been conducted since the Kim government was inaugurated in 1998. More shockingly, the spy agency also acknowledged that its wiretapping operations included interception of calls between mobile and fixed-line phones. Since the mid-1990s, the spy agency has been suspected of illegally listening in on cell phone conversations."
