Good: NOLA pulls the plug on spying on residents

Mayor Mitch Landrieu wants to dump city’s crime cameras

In seven years, New Orleans’ crime camera program has yielded six indictments: three for crimes caught on video and three for bribes and kickbacks a vendor is accused of paying a former city official to sell the cameras to City Hall.

Given that ignominious track record and the millions the city has paid for a camera network that rarely worked, Mayor Mitch Landrieu unceremoniously pulled the plug on the project Thursday.</em>

Amazing that a government program was stopped because it didn’t work. I thought that was beside the point?
