Sorry to bore international users, but more on the Toronto Streetcar Sammy Yatin hoax. Here’s the “spend more tax money” aspect and add overpriced “dash cams” to our already overburdened (clothing wise) police forcillo. The psychic driving element of surveillance=security is so Orwellian and sad.
Services using the cameras say the devices give added protection for police and the public, reduce frivolous complaints and keep officers on their best behaviour.
But the need for body cams runs deeper in Toronto, where public trust in police is badly broken.
