The establishment media is calling for the implementation of Big Brother technology following the Boston bombing last month.
In order to prevent terrorist attacks, CNN argues,

In April, CNN dismissed privacy and civil liberty concerns and argued
that “facial-recognition software and other technologies are making
security-camera images more valuable to law enforcement. Now, software
can automatically mine surveillance footage for information, such as a
specific person’s face, and create a giant searchable database.”
CNN says video surveillance is “less intrusive” and “much more
pleasant” than pat-downs and other in-your-face Gestapo tactics. “When
combined with competent law enforcement, surveillance cameras are more
effective, less intrusive, less psychologically draining, and much more
pleasant than these alternatives,” writes Heather Kelly.
