On April 15, 2013 there was a tragic bombing at the Boston Marathon. Almost instantly pictures and videos of "suspects" started to appear on the web. Was this a good thing? Do you have concerns?

Crowd-sourcing but without the media
In countries like India where most crowed market places, which are easy targets of bombings have few CCTV cameras

Well I think this whole idea of crowd-sourcing is great. In my country where terrorist threats come by the week, it is a good idea to cooperate with people to create a video-stream for threatened areas. But what is most important is that the information collected stays away from the public unless a convincing conclusion is arrived at. Giving away video feed to the media would only enrage aggressive minds and the innocent might suffer.
But the big problem in my country, India and many other terrorism affected nations is the lack of technology specially CCTV cams in shops, etc. So the idea might need some refinement for use in such countries.
