The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks has this great photo of a sign reading "Images are being recorded for the purpose of 'crime prevention' and 'public safety' and may be shared with third parties."

Is this a way to admit that the stated goals of the increasing surveillance in society is mostly bull, or is it just a Freudian slip?
