Robocop spy-cam speaks for itself

By Andrew Johnson

14 September 2003

 

 

It is the snooper that speaks before anyone has the chance to step out of line.

 

A cross between Big Brother and Robocop, it barks orders at would-be vandals, graffiti artists and drug users.

 

British Transport Police and two local authorities are experimenting with revolutionary cameras which can spot when people are not where they should be.

 

The Flash Cam 530 takes its photographs with an intense flash that can read a car number plate in the pitch dark from 100 yards, and then issues a stern 15-second Robocop-style spoken instruction to leave the area.

 

Steve Galinsky, who started importing the cameras from America in May, said: "We have seven on trial across the country. Easington Council in County Durham is using them to stop fly-tipping. We've had no prosecutions so far, but no fly-tipping either."

 

British Transport Police has three cameras, two standing guard at Worcester's Shrub Hill station and one in Leamington Spa station, to stop graffiti vandals.

 

There is another at the memorial site to the victims of last year's rail crash in Potters Bar. Would-be vandals are told: "This is a dedicated memorial site. Please leave now. Your photograph has been taken and may be used to prosecute you."

 

In Camden, north London, drug addicts hear: "Please leave now if you have no business in this area. Your photograph has been taken and if you are conducting an illegal activity you will be prosecuted."

 

Mr Galinsky said Scotland Yard was in discussions over the cameras being installed throughout London. Westminster Council is considering a trial in central London.

or just paint the front of it, or rip it down, put a bag over it, do a fillin under it, many many ways around such devices, i'd suggest tearing them down as much as possible, if the police see that as being something that costs more to fix than it catches, then they cant justify having them...can they?

I don't think scolding "fly-tippers" Robo-Cop style would be nearly as effective as a well-placed sniper round.

 

Robo-Cop: "Stop-fly-tipping-immediately. If-you-are-committing-an-illegal-act, you-will-be-prosecuted."

 

Fly-tipper: "Fook off, you fookin' fooker. Suck my dick, you fooking wanker! I don't obey some fookin' machine!"

 

Robo-Cop: BANG

 

Fly-tipper: "Ahhhh! Oh my God, he shot me! Sweet Jesus, I'm bleeding! Ma! Ma! Goddammit, that hurts!"

 

Robo-Cop: Leave-the-area-immediately. You are illegally-depositing-body-fluids-on-public-property-without-proper-authorization. This-is-is-a-Class-B-Misdemeanor."

 

Fly-tipper: "You FOOKING SOD robot! You've bleedin' SHOT me, you fook!"

 

Robo-Cop: BANG

 

Fly-tipper: "Ahhhh! Sweet Jesus, he fooking shot me AGAIN! I can't fookin' BELIEVE this shit! I'm going to call my fooking SOLICITOR!"

 

Robo-Cop: (click) "Prepare-to-receive-multiple-anti-personell-projectiles. Stand by! Four. Three. Two. . . RATATATATATATAT!"

 

Fly-tipper: "(Gurgle) Fook."

 

Silence.

 

Robo-Cop: "Leaving-deceased-mammals-on-public-property-is-a-Class-B-Misdemeanor. Please-remove-yourself."

in reference to what K-bar said:

 

:)

 

That makes me think of matchstick men. Nicolas Cage is O.C. and says something or another about shooting himself in the head. But doesnt because then how would he clean up the mess.

The only thing is, you have to know where the camera is, and if it's not one of those talking ones, I don't think it's gonna announce it's location to you.... but yes true, there's many many ways to duck out of a device's "digital reach".

so what happens after 15 seconds? another picture?

 

what if you're just standing there doing nothing, the police come and cant arrest you? (granted, they'll likely just beat you for making them get out of their car)
