Arizona: The Surveillance State
March 4, 2010 – 6:00 AM | by: Douglas Kennedy
For years Arizona has been known as the “sunset state,” but lately some residents simply call it the “surveillance state.”
“They track us everywhere we go,” says Phoenix resident Shawn Dow. “It’s unbelievable. I can’t go anywhere and not have a camera tracking me.”
Dow is now trying to change all that with a ballot initiative this November that would ban all ticket cameras in Arizona.
“I’m tired of being constantly watched,” he said. We’re all being tracked like cattle.”
In 2007, Arizona became the first state in the country to install ticket cameras state-wide, meaning there are cameras on most state highways; there are cameras at many intersections; and there are camera-vans videotaping on side streets.
