Big Brother's Eye in the Sky

Hugo Chavez has finally come up with a solution to the rampant crime that helps make Venezuela nearly uninhabitable under his regime. The rotting capital Caracas will be patrolled with zeppelins, which will spy upon the citizens below.

Three blimps costing $465,000 apiece will beam images back to the authorities. Unfortunately they will not be much use at night, which is when street crime tends to occur. But at least they will remind everyone that Uncle Hugo is watching. A Venezuelan lawyer who was afraid to give his name commented:

It reminds me of 1984, of George Orwell. This is Big Brother. It is not going to solve crime.

A more constructive approach to solving Venezuela's crime crisis would be lightening up on gun control. Gun ownership is severely restricted. As a result of law-abiding citizens having been disarmed, Venezuela has the world's highest rate of death by firearms.

Venezuela under Chavez.

On tips from MB and V the K.

(Moving my comment from another post)
It's a non-rigid airship, not a "zeppelin". Yes, there IS a diffrence.

Man, these things just won't die! I've heard a few months ago that someone in Germany was starting up an passenger airship service!

The conservaloons never complained at all when New York used airships to fight "crime" during the ReTHUG National Convention.

1983= Global Warming They have our children watching Al Gores film, just like the news feed in 1983, and some parents must view the film or the grades may suffer...Will the rat cage put an end to the last person to "Not Belive" I do hope I never get see the world after two terms of Hillery/Bill. Just why the hell did America put our freedom at risk just to distroy George Bush?, he will be gone after 08, this distruction of our way of life will not.

Ooooooooooo...reTHUG. How original. Well, at least it was during the first 100,000 times the Kostards used it.
