Jill Meagher's mum thanks crowd for 'huge support'

Jill Meagher's mum thanks crowd for 'huge support' | Surveillance Studies | Scoop.it

Ian Warren writes: "I fear the incessant nature of these reports is getting out of hand  but by the same token is indicative of something that is brewing in relation to the next 'surveillance surge' - despite evidence (as demonstrated in this tragic case) that at best, all the cameras can do is assist with detection after the event (much like James Bulger - the debate is uncannily identitcal) - so I will measure the next batch of these I send but there is almost a comparative article between this and Bulger's abduction to argue exactly the opposite of what everyone is saying!"

 

THE mother of murdered Brunswick woman Jill Meagher has called for more CCTV cameras as the 29-year-old's husband thanked the community for its support.
