New York City Subway System to Install Security Cameras in Train Cars
Gov. Kathy Hochul said the installations, which grew from a pilot project after a mass shooting in Brooklyn, would allay riders’ anxiety.
This is a good step, but more is needed.
We should be able to text the car number to the NYPD, and they should able to pull up the live feed immediately and follow the issue, and coordinate with the officers on the ground to address the situation in real-time.
So now instead of just getting beaten up, you will have video of yourself getting beaten up so you can re-live the experience.
They should use the worthy footage to make a TikTok account to pay for it
what does it matter if none of these guys ever get put away on any serious charges?
What if, just throwing this out there, instead of paying money to react to crime we spent money on social services that reduce crime. I’d rather just not be the victim of a crime than be a victim who’s perpetrator is caught quickly bc of cameras. Also 100% the nypd is going to abuse these when mixed with facial recognition programs they already have.
Will people stop pooping/peeing in the cars? I don’t think so.
waiting for someone to type the words "invasion of privacy" from their cell phone
Funny how the MTA has spent millions of dollars installing cameras on the LIRR, but yet they weren't able to put in a biometric device which allowed them to log actual working hours of employees at work MTA/LIRR facilities, all in a bid to curb compensation fraud. Imagine a Union so powerful they won't allow you to check real hours worked by employees.
Great! Now how about keeping violent offenders locked up, instead of immediately releasing them back onto the street?
you mean to tell me subway cars didn't already have cameras??
Wait... the train cars in NYC don't currently have cameras in them? ._.
Wait a minute, you mean to tell me they DIDN'T have these already?
The content this sub is going to be posting because of the cameras is going to get wild even for new york
Sweet. Now we can upgrade from cell phone footage of assaults to security cam footage.
This is the equivalent of the Ring cam: you still aren’t getting your package back, but now you’ve got hi-def footage of it being stolen, and more content for the police not to look over
No way they can build a network that actually sends decent quality video from 13,000 cameras to outside of the train car
This is going to be some 3fps 24x24 pixel art video or just be inaccessible from outside the subway car
