The City of Chicago will be looking after you if you attend the 2016 Summer Olympics (if the Windy City is awarded that august athletic celebration). Mayor Richard M. Daley said, "By the time 2016 [arrives], we'll have more cameras than Washington, D.C." With a Big Brother's assurance, he added, "By 2016, I'll make you a bet: We'll have [surveillance cameras on] every block." In the meantime, Daley wants to mandate businesses open more than 12 hours per day and bars open until 4:00 a.m. to install cameras that can i.d. anyone who enters and leaves these establishments. Chicago already employs 2000 cameras around the city connected to the emergency command center. Feel free, citizens of the safe city? Or does it matter anymore?
