Leiby Kletzky’s dad joined Dov Hikind and Dean Skelos to announce the ill-conceived camera plan.
The Daily News reported last week that the project has stalled over concerns about who will control the cameras and NYPD access to them. But the program’s flaws go much deeper.
Leiby was walking home from camp last summer when he was lured off the street by predator Levi Aron, who killed the boy and cut up his body. Aron — who was tracked down in part through private security cameras — pleaded guilty this month and faces 40 years to life in prison.
At a press conference in May, Hikind, Skelos and other pols promised a surveillance network for Leiby’s mostly Orthodox Jewish area.
Featured at the event was one of the state-of-the-art cameras supposedly to be used and a map with red dots marking where the devices would be placed. Skelos committed the $1 million.
