SAs you probably already know, the NYPD has been planning to blanket lower Manhattan with over 3000 security cameras as a preventative measure against future terrorist attacks. Not surprisingly, the New York City Liberties Union (NYCLU) has a different opinion on the matter, saying that "A plan of this scope, expense [$106 million] and intrusiveness demands robust public debate and legislative oversight. The public has a right to this information." Therefore, they have decided to sue the NYPD and force them to disclose their plans.
