"Pretty soon, if you're tossing a paper napkin on the ground, making an illegal U-turn or even letting Fido relieve himself on the streets of Bellwood, be forewarned: Somebody could be watching.

"In the hopes of eliminating crime, village officials say they'll have all the public ways in the 3.5-square mile town under camera surveillance within two years."


This is a terrifying precendent straight out of George Orwell's worst nightmare.
