Alabama: Municipal public access cable channel serves up special show

Someone in Tuscaloosa recently patched the video feed from the municipal surveillance camera system into the city's public access cable TV channel:

"A traffic camera focused on an intersection near the University of Alabama showed a lot more than cars recently - someone used it to zoom in on young women in an unexpected show that was broadcast on cable TV."

"Officials said Monday they were still trying to determine who was responsible for the unauthorized use of the camera. The Crimson-White, the student newspaper, reported that it learned at about 1:45 a.m. Friday that a camera at the intersection of University Boulevard and Reed Street, which usually remains stationary along a row of bars, was showing people."

"The camera zoomed in on the breasts and buttocks of several college-aged women. It also captured images of a group of young men who spotted the camera's movement and were making gestures and movements, the newspaper said. The images were shown on Channel 45 of Comcast Cable, which provides service for Tuscaloosa. The city has about 30 cameras that are connected by fiber-optic cable."
