A really bad idea of crowd-sourcing the Web

12,000 Estimated number of illegal immigrants apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border in November

10 Number of illegals apprehended in November thanks to a $200,000 experimental website allowing anyone to monitor the border and alert authorities. Viewers sent 14,800 e-mails through the site.

Oh my god, what's gonna be next?? It's not enough that we can practice neighbour-watching in our own neighbourhood, but now, thanks to the Web, we are able to big brother our neighbouring countries, practice border patrolling, and renounce illegal immigrants. A little respé, svp!!,9171,1576859,00.html
