    Live Camera Feeds
    This can be labeled as the Dark Mac-forums thread. My school has recently added live video feeds outside each exit/entrance to the outdoors throughout the whole school. They have nothing better to spend there money on so they added them to catch kids smoking ciggarettes but thats besides the point.

    What i was curious is how besides being in the control room for the cameras, to mess with them. Put fake streams of what is really going on. Like they did in Oceans 11 haha . Maybe if that cant be done what can be so they dont know what is really going on. Any ideas. All ideas are welcome.

    The first thing that comes to mind, is safety. There may have been violence crime, rape or even burglary. So I can see the need for the camera. To me that would make the school safer. I believe if a person is going to do something that is illegal, they are not going to do it in front of a building doorway. Due to possible traffic.

    If you look at the problems going on at USC. You can see why the camera have been installed.

    Not to be blunt...but you're completely wrong. I guarantee in any city there's crime that doesn't make the front page. I doubt it's rape or murder that they are trying to prevent necessarily, but I assure you that they didn't install hundreds if not thousands of dollars worth of video surveillance equipment to catch a 14 year old kid smoking a 3 dollar pack of cigs.

    Maybe it's to prevent vandalism, or make sure people aren't fighting on school grounds without them knowing. I can speculate as much as the next guy, but it's probably not w/o a decent reason.

    Honestly, if you really wanted to get back at them and knew for sure it was to only catch smokers, when it could be spent for 100 other things public schools need, try to get that story in your school paper.

    I'm sure they'd be pleased...

    I think it's the american media scaring all the parents so they all scream murder and start installing camera's everywhere.

    I know what it is like ot live in a rich stuck up town where alot of people smoke and they waste tax dollars, but tampering with the schools cameras is not the way to deal with it, if your not smoking, there is nothing to worry about, and if you are smoking MOVE SOMEWHERE ELSE!

    you really want to get round the camaras? simply use a picture in front of it from roughly the same angle ... sounds crazy but try it at home with your camcorder ... oh and smoking kills and all that

    I suggest that rather than worrying about the live video, you use you time at school to get a better grasp on the English Language.

    I dont think its a good idea to have live video feeds of a school. With the world we live in, you never know what type of pervet is watching. If they were a closed circuit video to watch for people breaking the law or fighting and things like that on school grounds then I can see it being of good use.

    Well, you are breaking the law/rules. Its called vandelisim of property. And if I were an Officer in your town, I'd haul you in. You'd really only get a nice fine, but I'd make it all worth it. Then you wonder why we need to monitor some things that go on in town and schools and wonder why Police Officers get so annoyed with these vandelisim cases. They are annoying and take too much d@mn time to write up the report! We could be out on the street catching real criminals.
