Get used to it?

http://www.wfmz.com/news/22613967/detail.html

I couldn't get to the video for some reason but the whole story doesn't look good. Over here their erecting cameras, even in apartment complexes. Under the guise that they are fighting crime surveillance is everywhere. Funny thing is crime is going up, so what are the cameras for?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Yeah, the video works for me after a 15 second commercial. 
Video is under a minute and says the school only looked
through the students webcams at them if the computer
was missing, but they did view some kid by mistake.

Re: Get used to it?

I read this story somewhere else, and it said that they were found out because they disciplined a student over "behaviour in his home". Surely even if they were telling the truth when they said they'd only view the webcam if the laptop was missing, they'd not act upon anything they saw if it was accidental?

For one thing they have no right, and for another they're kind of giving themselves away.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Re: Get used to it?

Cameras can be hijacked, so naturally they are hijacked? Questions...
