Many worry about surveillance systems being used by the government against the people. Now, here is a case where the system humiliated, and may potentially derail, a politician's career, crazy enough from video leaked off his own office's surveillance system.
Take a look at the make out session surveillance video:
Besides the fact that this Congressmen was dumb enough not to realize he had a surveillance camera 3 feet away from him, notice how the video was captured. This was NOT an export but a person who filmed the video being played back using their phone.
Any time a politician cheats, there's media coverage (e.g., see this article).
Beyond the shock value of the video / incident, it does raise real questions:
- Who has access to the surveillance recordings?
- What type of privacy issues / concerns does this type of 'distribution' raise?
