Want To Buy A Camcorder for $16,666?
But now the City Clowncil has agreed to pay $5 million to install 300 digital video cameras in police cars.
That works out to -- you guessed it! -- over $16,666 per camera!
Best Buy is offering the Sony Digital Handycam for $269.99. I'm guessing you could buy a bracket or some Gorilla Glue for another couple of bucks a unit. Plus, Best Buy may give us a deal if we buy 300 or so.
So can someone please explain why we must pay so much for these cameras? I'm all for cameras -- it would be a great way to cut down on "he said, she said" in disputes over alleged police misconduct, etc. -- but this strikes me as a tad pricey.
Do the units come with a director? Some kind of musical score? What, man, what?
