Remember Adam's Block, the site that streamed a video feed from Adam's personal, gritty corner of the Tenderloin? Adam himself ended up getting death threats and calls to his employer calling him a pedophile — the site shut down and Adam moved away. A lesson to anyone who dared to fight crime with camera! But the idea's not dead yet in law enforcement circles. Gavin has never been into the idea, but he may have had a change of heart after some personal lobbying from new police chief George Gascón. They're now thinking of putting up cameras "in a few specific locations" — undisclosed, but presumably they won't be streaming from sfgov.org anyway goshdarnit. [SFGate, previously]
