<nettime> web based border patrol [open sores 0.1] [signed]

 From the BBC, June 0st 2006:

"Web users to 'patrol' US border

Web users worldwide will be able to watch the Texas border. The US
state of Texas, is to enlist web users in its fight against illegal
immigration by offering live surveillance footage of the Mexican
border on the internet. Governor Rick Perry said the cameras would
focus on "hot-spots and common routes" used to enter the US. The plan
will allow web users worldwide to watch Texas' border with Mexico and
phone the authorities if they spot any apparently illegal crossings."


 From Heath Bunting, 1997:

CCTV - World Wide Watch Improve self policing with further absented
police force.
