    I think the saddest thing may be that these kids are being conditioned to think deep down that they're being paranoid.

    Anything that these cameras capture should be inadmisable in court. Basicly I view it as a search without a warrant. Store cameras I have no problem with, they can't throw you in jail unless you steal something.

    The people who say that "it just means that the police can be in more places at once and keep us safe, bla bla bla" I can drive up and down every street in town myself and not be doing anything illegal. If I try and set up my own camera on every streetcorner to keep an eye on things, my ass would be in jail before I even had the first one installed. If I can't do it, they shouldn't be able to do it. Stores can do it on their own property because it's their own property. I can put all the cameras in my house that I want. Police can have cameras in their cars because it is their property, so can I. But PUBLIC areas like streets, parks, etc should be OFF LIMITS. :fire:

    with all the latest infringments, we are becoming exactly what we fight against.

    sometimes I wonder what ever happened to the constitution, to some,it must not be worth the paper it was written on. sometimes I wonder where we are headed when there are folks that are willing to excuse blatant violations in the guise of security.

    kinda reminds me of "animal house" and the powers that be and their super secret probation.

    someone should post that quote about giving up liberty for perceived security.

    Somebody should write a SQL trigger to automatically post it any time the thread starter mentions "cameras," "security," "screening," or a few other keywords.

    So you all are saying a private individual cannot buy a camera with their own money to put on his own property?

    Typical response from a DU troll. The article clearly mentions private cameras on private property as part of the "problem".

    So you've still failed to read any of our responses?

    Am I to assume that you agree with every word of every article you post?

    Suppose that cities had the money and manpower to have a policeman posted every 50 feet on each street in the city. Would anybody make a stink?

    Slight change to your post crosshair

    instead of bla, bla bla, perhaps a better phrase would be:
    bah, bah bah. :D

    Actually, here in Ohio some cities, like Columbus, tired to make red light cam legal. Well, the the state legislature decided, it was ok, as long as you have a LEO standing there to write the ticket. A red light cam by itself wouldn't be legal in court.

    Perhaps that's an approach. Problem is it will not happen on a national level. Too many politicians see the need to keep us under the watchful eye of big brother :fire:
