Lookout Boston: the MBTA is watching you

The Metro reported yesterday that Boston commuters can expect to be surveilled more closely than ever before, thanks to a flood of DHS money for surveillance cameras on trains and buses in the metro area. The MBTA even wants to install cameras inside train cars, the better to see you reading your phone with? Apparently, there are already cameras inside some Orange and Red line cars.
