Police cameras to flood Manhattan to prevent attacks

New York officials say they could stop attacks like the attempted Times Square car bomb by expanding a controversial surveillance system so sensitive that it will pick up even suspicious behavior.

New York is already a heavily policed city, with 35,000 officers and a counterterrorism bureau -- the first of its kind in the country -- partnering the FBI.

Why more cameras, and the expense?   Cameras didn't prevent this attack.  Cameras captured the van arriving, the guy getting out and walking away.  Had the dolt been competent enough the cameras would have captured the explosion and body parts flying all over - but they would not have stopped it.

What prevented the attack, beside his imcompetence, is a man - a single human being, calling the attention of police to the van.
