Big Brother Is Watching VI
Eleven motion-detecting video cameras are being installed in alleyways in South Los Angeles to help combat litter and graffiti. People triggering the cameras while "loitering" in an alleyway will activate a recording that says, ""Stop! This is the LAPD. We have just taken your photograph. We will use this photograph to prosecute you. Leave now." Littering and tagging can bring six-month jail sentences and $1,000 fines.
