More video surveillance

After the attempted train-bombings here in germany, our minister of the interior promptly declared that he had already spoken to the representatives of the german bundesbahn to have the number of cameras in trainstations increased. This is done, so that we can catch more of those TERRORISTS, of course. Now obviously this plan has been carried out already, because since the last time I visited hamburg the number of cameras on the S-Bahn in Altona and Sternschanze has doubled! If you look more closely at the camera housings (those photographs are so shoddy, you cannot even see the label :-( ) they are clearly marked as "camera 4" and "camera 4 (redundant)". I feel much safer already.
