Don't want to be on camera? Don't go outside. This is a necessary part of modern life. Check out London's system sometime.
The idea of security cameras in select few public places, particularly in areas prone to crime, doesn't bother me so much. It's the precedent set by London that concerns me.
If I wanted to live in Europe I would.
They wanna watch me? Ha! Fine with me, it's their boredom they gotta deal with.
By the way, 'ferret' type satellites, both US and Russian can photograph all of the earth 24/7 with views down to a few centimeters
"They lookin' atcha."
RoeDy's tinfoil hats still priced at a low, low $5.95. Discounts on purchases of 5 or more.
I'd like to read the warranty on the tinfoil hats. They do work, don't they?
The extra value are they are antiques. I prefer the modern aluminum foil caps.
No, no, and no. "Ferret" satelittes are SIGINT or "listening" satellites, not photographic. And atmospheric distortion is simply too great to get that kind of resolution from space. The myth about reading the date on a dime on a sidewalk from space is just that - a myth. Expensive lenses and image processing software can only do so much.
They never photograph my good side. And fat, oh honey child, don't get me started! They add at least ten lbs to a fella. But the main thing is to watch for the ones that actually pan to follow you. That means you're on live & it's showtime!
That's when you put on a show. Start dancing and singing like in a musical. You used to be able to hold a conversation with yourself to get their attention, but now they just think you're on a cell phone. Silly walks work, too. Messing with the norms is great sport.
If you want to watch me chasing nose goblins, knock yourself out.
+1 Damn skippy
There are some legitimate places and uses for security cameras. Some people put them up to satisfy their sick voyeuristic needs.
I've read about a few people that got busted for that.
Well I guess once you leave your own property you are in public and if you think about it it just says anything you do can be seen by anyone else who is watching camera or not. And with some neighbors they be all up in your business even when you are on your property so is there really any true privacy other than the bathroom and bedroom?
There's never true privacy if you have a cat.
Surely you jest. Tell me you jest.
I don't like the idea of cameras everywhere, but I do see the need. What concerns me even more is a law Illinois is considering that makes it a felony to video tape police officers. What are they afraid of? If the people can be video taped why not the police? Some cops are more criminal than the criminals they arrest.
No fear of the camera. Got nothing to hide.
Who's paying for this so called security? How is it making the "public place" safer?
I don't care for the cameras, either. But every time I see a news story about a kid that was grabbed by a sicko, or a young lady that was grabbed a sicko, or some grandma that was mugged by a sicko, and the cameras helped catch that sicko in some way, I think I can put up with them. Some times you have to put up with the BS--for the greater good.
since we are paying for them
one way for the other
i wish they wouold have a better quality
most of the ones we see on the news
are worse than worse
if you are stupid enough to do something
in public, you shouldnt be doing
you deserve to be thrown in jail
If I were doing something that i wouldn't want caught on camera, I'll do it at home. If you don't want to be caught on camera, find another place to canoodle.
