big brother targeting young people…

boingboingA couple of creepy, big-brother-style news targeting the youth from boingboing:
The Shibuya Center-Gai Patrol is a volunteer group of people who patrol the streets of Tokyo wearing police-like uniforms and yelling and blowing whistles at loiterers, smokers, and other people who don’t behave like salarymen or shoppers. … The patrolman yells at some young people sitting along the side of the street, telling them to stand up because they are being a nuisance. …
Students at Lipson School in Plymouth UK returned from a one-week break to discover closed-circuit security cameras in the lavatories. After hundreds of students protested, the school agreed to remove the cameras. … Principal Steve Baker said contractors fitted them on the orders of another staff member, who did not have the measure approved by him or school governors.
