  • I really dont mind. if theres a chance itll help fight crime and get people locked up for murder, rape etc then im happy for it really!
  • I am happy to see those cameras. Since I am not doing anything wrong, I don't mind being filmed in public places. The chances of me being a victim of a crime is greater and hope those cameras will help find the criminal.
  • On one hand, this could be very useful in solving many crimes where there are no witnesses. There is no invasion of privacy since you are in the public view. On the other hand, if the government were to become overly powerful, such as in a police state, those who are falsely accused would have no escape (trying to leave the country for example). Also, if there is a system that uses face recognition software to track down wanted individuals, this could result in many false identifications and/or arrests. It's really dependent on how the technology is used.
  • Im quite happy with the cameras you feel alot safer,and many criminals have been caught with them so carry on.
  • Let em look. If they catch me doing anything interesting, I hope they let me know. Seriously, I have nothing to hide
  • 300 times a day! I am still covering the camera with my palm at the ATM cause I'm paranoid...lol.
  • Now how are they going to install that in Montana???
  • I wouldn’t like it if I was using one of those public toilets on the street. Do you guys still have those??? And if I'm was adjusting my clothes because they have ridded up were they shouldn’t have ;)
  • Popular!
  • Makes for some funny videos to watch. I am alright with it as long as they don't start linking my internet name to the real person. They could use it to monitor one individual. Not good if its active but if passive I think its fine.
  • I love em', the amount of serious crime that has been solved with the help of these cameras in the UK is staggering, including the arrest of the failed bombers on 21/7/05, who were convicted recently and received 40 years min each, and it helped them arrest the suspect in the Ipswich prostitute killings within a few weeks of the first body being found. It is not just London BTW, every City and Town in the UK have cameras set up by the local authority. The only people who don't like them are the criminals.
  • That creeps me out. Before we know it we will be living in a total police state. Monitors everywhere, yikes. Most major intersections in my city have a camera to watch traffic and catch speeders. Most stores have mointors everywhere. Unfortunately even some bathrooms. All that monitoring, but who is monitoring the monitors???
  • I love taking pictures... CHEESE! No really, that would be freaky. And also an invasion of my privacy
  • I could have a little fun with knowing I was going to be on so many videos
  • I don't think I'd mind. I have nothing to hide, and if they catch me doing something like adjusting my clothing, or whatever, I don't really care. The point of those cameras isn't to capture the mundane things going on every day, but rather to deter or help solve crime. That I'm ok with.
  • I understand in the cities the need for crime sake but they are putting cameras at many of the intersections here now too. My poor, poor teen drivers!
  • wow. why is this? what are these cameras? i would be kind of bothered by that just thinking about it sometimes.
  • For crimes thats fine and I understand , but to watch every move I make is spooky
  • They're monitoring the Public, not you specifically. Under US law, you have NO expectation of privacy after you leave your home.
  • My ex was a comp surveillence (not spelled correctly) specialist and had the entire home wired for image and sound and monitored everything from his office.. its a pretty big infringement of your right to privacy. :)
  • Are you kidding me! No way would I want to be watched like that.
  • Reminds me of the book 1984
  • Much the same in the U.S. Almost ALL business have some kind of monitoring. There are cameras on street lights and traffic signals here in Florida. You should always assume you are being watched and or recorded anytime you leave your home. As long as your not doing anything illegal, immoral, or something you would be ashamed of there shouldn't be a problem.
  • that settles it I am changing my vacation to Narobi!!!
  • it is needed in the society we now live in. i feel much safer knowning that 'big brother' is watching.
  • 1984, Orwell was such an insightful advanced writer.. i wouldn't like to think that we are that controlled by the powers to be. its frightening and seems like it should be unconstitutional.
  • Well, given that most of the time you don't even know you are being monitored (and you certainly aren't when in a private place like your home), I don't care in the slightest. It helps the police capture criminals and stop crime, it makes people more afraid to commit a crime, etc. It is a very effective method of stopping criminal behaviour and even saving lives (in the case of terrorism for example) and does -N-O- harm to anyone who doesn't deserve it. To be frank, it REALLY annoys me when people whine constantly about having their 'privacy invaded', when THEY'RE IN A PUBLIC AREA >: ( It's not even stupid to think that, it's just wrong. If you are so crazy about not even being seen by other people, stop leaving your house, or put a bag over your head, or something... But those cameras save lives and stop crime, so deal with it ; )
  • Feels like 1984!! I dont think all these cameras benefit society enough to justify their existence...
  • no thanks, I am way to camera shy
  • I get more pictures of me taken when I walk into 7-11. A ten second video clip contains about 300 pictures. And besides, the queen probably skews the average quite a bit.
  • I think the figure is an extreme overestimate, unless you're a celebrity.
  • It is of cours not the cameras that bother me, but how they are used. Saving property and lives is a good use. We need a few more strategecally placed cameras focussing on our corruptable governments to though not just the people.
  • I don't really do anything wrong but it kinda creeps me out to think I am being filmed like everywhere.
  • Thats crazy. George Bush will do it soon. And if he doesn't any of the other candidates will have it done soon enough, so they can counter terrorism. Except of course, Ron Paul.
  • I work in a casino and am on camera all the time. I have no problem w/it.
  • Yeah I think it sucks that it happens. But its in public, people can see you anyway? Its not like you have cameras in your bedroom and in your bathroom. Most buildings have security cameras anyway. And when you get the crap kicked out of you and all you stuff stolen, you can at least get that vid feedback (if its actually recording and not for show), and try to get that person responsible. I have nothing to hide.
  • Personally I feel it is an invasion of my personal privacy. I am not doing anything wrong and I trust most of society is not either. Why do we all have to be monitored because of a few bad apples???
  • that is a lot of times, however, if one has nothing to hide, there should be no problem! I feel the minute anyone lets down their guard, the terrorists will be back en masse.
