He says he put his life on the line to stop a killer — and claims cops sat back and watched.

NYPD's New Surveillance System is Watching You

http://www.policeone.com

In George Orwell’s classic novel 1984, the government of Oceania maintained total surveillance of its citizens via the telescreen, a television installed in virtually every room and on every street corner that could be turned down, but never turned off.
