Re: panopticons; not just in Glasgow

Americans might be interested to know that similar cameras were set
up (together with the closing off of some streets) in Chelsea
Massachusetts, as part of a federally-funded, locally-resisted,
`anti-crime' programme. Maybe it didn't make CNN because most of the
residents of Chelsea are working-poor immigrant and first-generation
I think it's interesting that `this aspect of disciplinary society'
appeared in the US in prisons first of all -- that is, with a population
least able to resist and least likely to gain popular support.
