Big Brother Is Watching……So What

Here’s a way to work CCTVs for you.

Unable to afford a proper camera crew and equipment, The Get Out Clause, an unsigned band from the city, decided to make use of the cameras seen all over British streets.

With an estimated 13 million CCTV cameras in Britain, suitable locations were not hard to come by.

They set up their equipment, drum kit and all, in eighty locations around Manchester – including on a bus – and proceeded to play to the cameras.

Afterwards they wrote to the companies or organisations involved and asked for the footage under the Freedom of Information Act.

Hilarious!! Personally, I am kind of ambivalent to  CCTVs.  I mean, what really is the point?  Do they deter crime? Hell yes. I would think twice before shop lifting. Do they deter violent crimes? Hell, no. Violent criminals probably don’t care a rat’s ass that they are being watched. They will continue to do the crime regardless of the consequences because that’s who they are. Don’t believe me? OK, listen to the experts.

I agree the technology is still improving and once it does, things will change. I still contend that violent crimes will continue regardless of CCTVs.
