Smile, if you're in downtown Houston Homeland Security picking up tab for 250-300 surveillance cameras

"The city has spent about $14 million in federal grant funding on the camera program, which it expects to finish by the end of January. The money comes from Urban Area Security Initiative funds doled out annually by Homeland Security to regions across the country, Storemski said.
In recent years, Houston has received an estimated $18 million to $20 million, money to spend on initiatives to prevent and detect terrorism."

Is it me - or does it seem like all "security" efforts are aimed directly at the American PUBLIC THEMSELVES?
