Houston and other cities are adding surveillance cameras to help protect the public after the Boston bombing and riots in other cities. Homeland security is offering grants to cities who update security. Yet many cry “foul” and see cameras as an intrusion to their privacy. How do you feel? This conjurers up the NSA phone call and Internet spying that many are talking about. I must say that most people I know are law biding citizens and don’t have a lot to hide. I think that is why so many feel apathetic on these surveillance issues.
I personally don’t like government intrusion but I also feel that a big role of government is to keep us safe. I’m not sure they can provide intelligent protection for the public with their hands tied behind their back.
