Although it's been shown that surveillance cameras have not reduced street crime in London, UK, the RCMP is planning on trying them out in Vancouver.

Meanwhile, the Privacy Commissioner is doing his job well.

That's only if they point the cameras at actual criminals instead of hot chicks and brown-skinned males.
