Beijing couples trying to score a little public nookie should be worried about a little more than just disapproving looks from others: state news agency Xinhua reported yesterday that police CCTV monitoring computers tend to flag "intimate acts" as crimes like kidnapping and robbery, because they're "programmed to be sensitive to violations of safe distances." All this really means, of course, is that working for the Beijing 5-0 just got a little more interesting: officers will first "monitor" the suspected crime to make sure things are on the up-and-up before dropping in and killing the mood. You keep that city safe, boys.
