    Too Candid Camera

    “Houston's police chief on Wednesday proposed placing surveillance cameras in apartment complexes, downtown streets, shopping malls and even private homes to fight crime during a shortage of police officers,” the Associated Press reports.

    In “Understanding Privacy -- and the Real Threats to It,” Jim Harper, director of information policy studies at the Cato Institute, writes: “Whether it is anti-privacy regulation, data collection required by all manner of government programs, or outright surveillance, the relationship of governments to privacy is typically antagonistic. Privacy thrives when aware and empowered citizens are able to exercise control of information about themselves. Thoughtful policymakers should recognize the detrimental effects many programs have on consumers' privacy and respond with proposals that reduce the role of government in individuals' lives.”

    I did not see anything on the Cato.org site about this, but Googling did find:
    Note the old "If you're not doing anything wrong..." line. :cuss:

    Ghillie suits and quality pellet guns should take care of this.
