From Jedidiah Palosaari:

Re: Eye photos might deter crime, police say following research (Sept. 8): Great. This is the kind of research that isn’t necessarily the best these days. As societies get more and more Draconian, I can see some Orwellian fantasies played out with this research, where the government reminds us everywhere that “Big Brother is Watching”—lest we get any ideas of doing anything inappropriate. Because one man’s crime is another man’s freedom, and what is inappropriate can become quite broadly defined.
