We live in a world where surveillance is everywhere. Municipalities have cameras on street corners. Banks are surrounded by cameras. University campuses are covered. Retailers are watching customers and employees. Indeed, thanks to the lowered price of surveillance solutions, a heightened need for surveillance and improved capabilities, we should never assume that our actions in public aren’t being recorded.
However, many do forget that surveillance is always watching. The news often shares surveillance footage of sad, tragic and enraging events. Alternatively, on the lighter side of surveillance are videos of funny, odd and just plain entertaining events.
When it rains, it pours
Forklift accidents happen all the time in warehouses, often with tragic results. In this humorous case, a worker accidently hits an overhead sprinkler head, then attempts to fix the leak. Mayhem ensues.
Give a dog a bone
Retail video surveillance is often used to catch thieves and armed robbers after the fact, but seldom 4-legged robbers. Imagine watching the news and seeing your dog caught on surveillance stealing his favorite treats from the local store.
Man's best friend, indeed
Police body cam footage has become a critical piece of surveillance used today. In this instance, an officer responds to help free a dog from a fence. It’s what happens after freeing the dog that will put a smile on your face.
This montage of surveillance video includes the weird, wacky and ridiculous.
