Thurs 5/16/13 Noon & 7 pm   Video footage from surveillance cameras were helpful following the recent bombings at the Boston Marathon. Here in Vermont, images from a jewelry store camera helped solve the murder of Michelle Gardner-Quinn. Other cases have also been aided by footage collected from these cameras.

Vermont Assistant Attorney General Cindy Maguire and ACLU Vermont Executive Director Allen Gilbert discuss the laws surrounding placement of surveillance cameras and the permissible use of images collected from them. We also hear about towns and schools who are currently using these video systems.

Also on the program, we welcome world music band 3 Trees for a live performance.
