CCTV To Predict Thought Crime

by | 28th, November 2008

AS BASTARD Old Holborn puts it: “What the f*ck?”

CCTV cameras which can ‘predict’ if a crime is about to take place are being introduced on Britain’s streets. The cameras can alert operators to suspicious behaviour, such as loitering and unusually slow walking. Anyone spotted could then have to explain their behaviour to a police officer.

They’re bing trialled in Porstmouth. If it works thinking will be outlawed. That’s the police officer with the taser drawn and ready to fire it 0000.1 of a second after the crime has been actioned. Too late by then. Better the taser is fired before the crime.
But then there is the chance of human error, of a misfire, of the copper hitting the would-be victim and not the would-be felon, of hitting themself.
What’s required is for the CCTV to come equipped with a taser, and Britain’s law abiding joystick enthusiasts and gamers invited to aim and fire it.

Look out for Thinking Grand theft Auto: Thought Crime coming to a stocking this Christmas.

Come the revolution!!
