Surveillance cameras evolve more intelligent breed of humans
by jailing and thereby reducing the probability of offspring of
the truly stupid. Consider this from today's San Jose Mercury News:
Four men escaped in March after robbing a Mellon PSFS
Bank in downtown Philadelphia, but police got a clear photo
of one of the men, who had inadvertently stood on the sidewalk
directly facing the bank's surveillance camera while getting up
the nerve to put on his mask.
And Cedrick Washington, 33, was arrested in November and
charged with robbing a Kenner, LA sandwich shop. According
to police, he had stood in front of the shop (again, inadvertently
facing the surveillance camera), repeatedly practicing pulling
his shirt over his head as a disguise.
