I know that we all want safe streets, and crime stopped. However we must ask ourselves this question, at what cost do we achieve this? Some say that having cameras will catch someone braking the law. However there are those of us who believe that when they put them on your street corners that this is cool, but when they want to install them in your homes to see what goes on inside will you have a problem? I ask this, because this is where we are headed. As a CRIM major At FSU, I happened to be at a demonstration where the police department showed us a device, that allows them to see how many people are in the home? For example, if they are looking for someone, they will ask how many people are in the house? And if you say that there are three, they go out to their car, and use the device, and if they find that there are six people in the house they have grounds for a probable cause search, which gives them the right to come right into your home. Again we as Blind people rest much of our safety, and hopes in the government, and legislation. I do believe that the days are soon coming if they are not already here where we can't always rest our faith, and hopes in these institutions. Right now we say yes bring on the cameras, but will we say yes to them coming into your homes, and your privet lives? We should be careful for what we ask, because we just might get it.
