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.

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.

Who's paying for this so called security? How is it making the "public place" safer?

No fear of the camera. Got nothing to hide.

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.

If it wasn't for security cameras there wouldn't be the excellent televison show called "Person of Interest".

CWGOKU is 100 percent right on the mark...... There is no privacy interest in public places..... Legal anyways.....

I do not like being watched, but with a society that breeds ignorance the number of thugs and losers out there mandate the cameras........ At least then, when a cop goes cucu for coca puffs on some gangster thug -- who probably deserved it --- we can tell if it is just or not.....

I blame the Fox the channel for the breeding of the ignorance.....

If people would listen to the liberals, there would be no need for the cameras as crime would be going down from proper education and elimination of poverty.....

(ohhh, I mean everything above but am laughing as I type it)

There's never true privacy if you have a cat.

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 are some legitimate places and uses for security cameras. Some people put them up to satisfy their sick voyeuristic needs.

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!

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.

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.
