It seems irrational, spending $106 million
to catch car thieves. But then the “initiative”
is billed as an adventure in “counter-terrorism,”
not one to counter car thieves. Of course, there are precious
few terrorists of the Osama bin Laden type on Manhattan, or
anywhere else outside of the Middle East, but this matters
not, as the point is to monitor the masses, not catch mythical
terrorists as they exit strip clubs.
