I've said before (many times) that CCTV doesn't work, but now the British police are saying it, too. We know it doesn't work. It does little to solve crime other than to coddle the feelings of those who don't know better. Of course, the government won't listen. If they were to admit that they've wasted billions of pounds for nothing, people would ... well ... what? They'd grumble and turn back to their pints.
