Chaska police use blogs to catch criminals


by Ann Treacy | March 26, 2009 • I’m not 100 percent sure how I feel about this story. The Chaska Police have started to post surveillance video of suspects on their blog. I caught the story last night on the Channel Five News.

Blandin on Broadband offers information on broadband use, access, and trends especially in rural Minnesota. Sponsored by the Blandin Foundation and their Broadband Initiative.

The blog appears to be very new – and it appears as if one case has been has already been solved, presumably with help from a blog reader. I guess if it were my store that had been robbed, I’d like it; or if were my child that was abducted, I’d love it.

It kind of hammers on home the idea that Big Brother is always watching. I just feel like it might be opening the door to vigilantes or camera hungry criminals.
