    Above is a special issue editorial by Michael and Michael (2011) for the Journal of Location-based Services: "In the Vancouver riots a few months prior, instead of the police asking for assistance from the telecommunications companies, they asked bystanders who witnessed the events unfold to take audio-visual footage of the riots, and were allegedly inundated with submissions. According to Reuters (2011), ‘[a] note on the VPD website thanked citizens for the overwhelming response, and begged their patience while police sifted through the footage’. Some believed that the social networks played a role in further inciting the violence, as users began to geo-tag and geo-record riot scenes and post them in near real-time on Twitter and YouTube. The problem with this kind of crowd-sourced surveillance is that it presents a dilemma for policing resources to have to plough through the magnitude of submitted data. The submissions may also misrepresent what actually happened because cross-sectional video evidence always falls short of capturing the bigger picture. Individuals may be implicated from the footage that were not the cause of the major damage but got caught up in the hysteria and posed for photographs in front of burning vehicles instead. Despite these shortcomings, there is no doubt that LBS will play a major role in locating individuals during times of public unrest. While uberveillance does lend itself to misinformation, misinterpretation and information manipulation, Harfield (2010) argues ‘that degrees of criminal harm have also intensified’ so the new means of meta-analysis through information technology are justified, if conducted within the means of the law."
