I think this is an amazing idea! First, its invasion of privacy and the City of Long Beach’s Mayor has just instituted a massive law off announcement within the city due to budget cuts! This really sounds like money well spent? Where the citizen’s of Long Beach provided an opportunity to vote on this? I also read approximately 2-years ago that the City of Long Beach was proposing to sale 2 of their police helicopters due to economic conditions! Keep spending!

“Person of Interest” the TV show come’s to mind,,,,Don’t worry it WILL come back to bite them! I’m Sure!
