Poll Finds Strong Acceptance for Public Surveillance By MARK LANDLER and DALIA SUSSMAN Americans overwhelmingly favor installing video surveillance cameras in public places, judging the infringement on their privacy as an acceptable trade-off for greater security from terrorist attacks, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll.

A week after the Boston Marathon attack, which was unraveled after the release of video footage of the two suspects flushed them out of hiding, 78 percent of people said surveillance cameras were a good idea, the poll found.

The receptiveness to cameras on street corners reflects a public that regards terrorism as a fact of life in the United States — 9 out of 10 people polled said Americans would always have to live with the risk — but also a threat that many believe the government can combat effectively through rigorous law enforcement and proper regulation.

They are going to beg for the police state and they are going to get it.

Don’t leave out surveillance drones. I predict in ten years there will be more drones than birds. Used by government, law enforcement AND private companies.

I'd say peaceful demonstration is the way to go.
