When They Keep an Eye on you

By: Matjaz

Hidden video cameras and other sensors watch us every day, mainly in the big cities.
The police, shopping centers and individuals watch us (public squares, public roads, highways, schools, universities, business quarters, office buildings, government quarters, hotels, museums, hospitals, post offices, shopping centers, banks, ATMs, airports, restaurants, buses, etc...). The cameras are on the pillars or on the top of a building. Some of them are zoom compatible or able to turn around 360?. And much of them can see in the darkness. The films are stored in databases. There are computer programs which can recognize the wanted person.
