Greenville Latest to Try Becoming Surveillance State

GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — The City of Greenville is joining others across the Delta in adding an always-on police eye-in-the-sky to monitor citizens. The city council this week approved a trial with a single Sky Cop Camera. Mayor Errick Simmons will be meeting with Chief of Police Delando Wilson to choose the trial location for the camera, which will be mounted high on a utility pole and provide real-time images to police department headquarters 24 hours a day. Sky Cop camera systems have been installed over the last year in cities across the Delta, from Helena-West Helena in Arkansas, to Clarksdale, and Greenwood.

    I love the cameras at Walmart. They make me feel safer. We certainly need a few around other places in Greenville.

  3. And I thought traffic cams were an invasion! This takes the cake! False equivalence of safety! SMH!
