Do you think it would be a good or bad idea to have cameras monitoring ALL American streets? Do you think that crime rates would drop? Would you feel safer on the streets?

I think that it is a good idea, that crime rates would drop, and yes I would feel safer on the streets.

One, there is no Constitutional presumption that one in public about his affairs has a protected right to privacy.

Two, CCTV in Britain has been a great aid to police and deterrent to criminals.

Good idea.

While I don't think cameras reduce crime as much as help make sure the guilty get caught and punished after the fact, anything that does that is fine by me.

Only the guilty fear surveillance.

You have to pay someone to monitor it.

It's not like the Truman show

Perhaps a poor quality monitoring system?

Not necessarily...is anyone paid to monitor cameras in banks and convenience stores? A street monitoring system could work like those cameras.

You all who think this is a good idea, do the USSR proud.

You all know what goes good with cameras? Electronic monitoring bracelets. You guys want to wear one of those?
Seeing as how you are giving up freedoms to the government.

And are not a couple of you posters Repubs who are all concerned about intrusive government? LMAO. Or are you all Dems and want intrusive government? Can't tell the difference anymore.

how much does that cost? How good is it? I don't know, do you? I know the high tech is out there
What does price matter if it will protect American lives & help fight crime?

So cameras in banks and convenience stores are Soviet style entities & "government intrusion?" That just sounds silly. If the majority of the American people wanted cameras monitoring their streets, then cameras monitoring the streets in 100% American.

There are trials in America to examine evidence and footage from cameras is evidence.

Now, do you wanna talk about banks? Or as your first post indicated, and I responded to, do you wanna talk about government placed cameras on American streets?

You know the difference between "private" and "government"? Sure you do. So why you trying to change the channel?

When will your education tell you that we in this country do not make decisions based on simple majorities?
Were you aware of that?
