Although the ACLU has no objection to cameras at specific, high-profile public places that are potential terrorist targets, such as the U.S. Capitol, the impulse to blanket our public spaces and streets with video surveillance is a bad idea. Here are four reasons why:
 
 
Now I've got an interest in these little buggers. That all seeing eye is everywhere. I got one of those red light tickets in the mail and I don't remember running any red light. Now I can't go out to the mailbox without being afraid of getting more papers telling me I owe money to someone or something out there. So, I've been reading around about this crap. Thought I would post my complaint and see what happens.

I've had an interest in this story, too. These things really don't see much of a drop in crime. According to this article, about 20 million in Federal dollars was sent to Houston alone to set up a camera system.

Hidden cameras are great. You get to see all kinds of filthy things. You'd be surprised at what people do when they think no one is watching.

Make money on video!  It's good to know what tax dollars are being spent on. How much does it cost to install and maintain these devices?

 

The video surveillance market continues to see robust growth with more cameras being installed today than ever before, as organizations, businesses and governments desire to deter, protect, prosecute and predict with their surveillance systems.

 
 
Video surveillance is big business. Expect it to get bigger.

Sometimes, video cameras can be such pesky things. Police don't seem to like them when they're pointed at them. :)

I really don't like how easy it is to spy on people these days. I used to like sun bathing in my backyard naked. Now, I gotta worry about some perv with a drone spying on me while I get some rays.
