Well here we go, boys and girls…just like I’ve BEEN SAYING for some time now…we officially have the strong beginnings of a police state in our own nation. We can look to New York City for inspiration to lead us all into a state of fear, consternation, and further economic insecurity as we gear up in the “War on Terror” for the so-far unseen 9/11 Part Two. Did any of you ever get bullied in school? Do you remember the guy who walked around making people flinch on the way to class? That’s terrorism. We (the leadership of we) obviously don’t understand that for some strange reason. We keep jerking across the hall and spilling our books everywhere like a noob. Ugh. From the N.Y. Times.

By the end of this year, police officials say, more than 100 cameras will have begun monitoring cars moving through Lower Manhattan, the beginning phase of a London-style surveillance system that would be the first in the United States.

The Lower Manhattan Security Initiative, as the plan is called, will resemble London’s so-called Ring of Steel, an extensive web of cameras and roadblocks designed to detect, track and deter terrorists. British officials said images captured by the cameras helped track suspects after the London subway bombings in 2005 and the car bomb plots last month.

If the program is fully financed, it will include not only license plate readers but also 3,000 public and private security cameras below Canal Street, as well as a center staffed by the police and private security officers, and movable roadblocks.
