Montebello's Spray Can Cams

The LA Times reports that the city of Montebello plans to install 120 cameras city-wide that begin recording when triggered by the sound emitted from aerosol spray cans. The high-tech cameras then notify the police department as they record the activity.

Interesting, but I'm sure that etching will most likely have a sharp increase as a result of this.

Sounds mighty expensive and very big brotherish.

Love it, everyone could use a big brother. Isn't that why they started the Big Brother foundation? I do have to say, Montebello is dirt poor, it's old school East LA. In fact, it's poorer than Santa Ana...what gives? Why can't this city get something done to help fight tagging?
