Tweaking the Surveillance Apparatus

According to a report at The New York Times, this recently painted mural by Banksy will be removed by order of the borough council. It is difficult to know whether this is just because, as the council president proclaimed, one cannot simply encourage graffiti, because of the critical message the mural expresses, or because, the artist managed to paint the mural without detection right under the nose of a CCTV camera (shown circled in red to the upper right in this photograph).
