Sousveillance in new york

NY Mayor Bloomberg announced opening 911 emergency call for on the spot video transmission to the authorities on ongoing criminal activities.

Sounds like a you tube version for crime, at least for the Court. Bloomberg said:

"If you see a crime in progress or a dangerous building condition, you'll be able to transmit images to 911," Bloomberg said in disclosing the proposal yesterday during his annual State of the City speech.

The mayor said the high-tech initiative is "something no other city in the world is doing" and would be extended to 311, the city's non-emergency hot line.
