Castelli extols virtues of video surveillance

New York Assemblyman Robert Castelli and former law enforcement officers say the public will have to get used to more video surveillance after the attempted Times Square bombing.

Castelli (R-Goldens Bridge), who worked for decades as a state police investigator, says the quick arrest of bombing suspect Faisal Shahzad was due in no small part to video surveillance.

"We want people to recognize law enforcement are not violating their constitutional rights, but using all the technology, all the capabilities available to protect the public trust," Castelli says.
