More proposed surveillance

The BBC have a report about an idea being contemplated by Merseyside Police:

"Spy planes could be flown high above the streets of Merseyside as part of a crackdown on anti-social behaviour.

The use of surveillance drones is one of a number of technology-driven ideas being explored by Merseyside Police's anti-social behaviour (ASB) task force.

The squad's aim is to use any civil and criminal law available to target those who make living in some areas a misery.

Senior officers have described the new initiative as an "Al Capone" approach to so-called yob behaviour".

What absolute nonsense.

Its about time Police forces stopped hiding behind technology and got out on the streets and gave the criminals a hard time.

I'm sick of these insane schemes being dreamed up instead of them just employing a common sense approach to policing.

We're already the most heavily watched country in Europe, enough is enough!
