Game Of Surveillance Camera Destruction Hits The United States

The previously discussed trend of making a game out of breaking as many public surveillance cameras as possible, known as Camover, appears to have crossed the Atlantic, with a team calling themselves the Barefoot Bandit Brigade claiming a score of 17 in Washington state:

17 Security Cameras Disabled and Destroyed in Puget Sound Region — In the opening weeks of February, 2013, we have removed and destroyed 17 security cameras throughout the Puget Sound region. This act is concrete sabotage against the system of surveillance and control. It is also a message of solidarity and a wish of strength to the Seattle Grand Jury Resisters, those currently incarcerated and those not. Finally, this act announces our participation in the game of CAMOVER, called for by comrades in Germany.

    I am already a huge fan of this sport. Though it will be difficult to televise, I would enjoy looking at artist’s recreations.

    I would love to take down a few “red light” cameras here in Florida

      I have read in numerous reports that red light cameras cause more accidents than unmonitored or even unregulated intersections.

      You would be contributing to the greater good.

    Seattle takes part of the lead again. I love this place.

    Rather than calling it a sport, let’s call it a protest, or even better a vote.

      Then, of Seattle, I may say (as Ted Heistman said of something else):

      “Evolution in action.”

      …and add that: I mean it in a good way!

    Soon the state will need a camera to watch the camera, and a camera to watch the camera watching the camera and a camera to watch the camera watching the camera that watches the camera watching the camera. ahahhaahahahaha. camera.
