Washington D.C.'s Homeland Security Department Wants to Access Security Cameras of Private Businesses

My commentary would not do the story justice, so please read the quoted text below. What will the powers-that-be want to access next? Peoples' private USB webcams?

D.C.'s homeland security department is pressing for access to more security cameras, including ones owned by private businesses and Metro.

The D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency submitted a plan to tap into private cameras, such as those found at banks or outside office buildings...

D.C.'s neighbor Baltimore, Maryland has allegedly accessed private cameras as well, when its police department was monitoring security cameras from local bars.
