So I don’t know how I got on this topic with my cab driver, considering the condition I was in, but he had some interesting thoughts on the crime cameras around town. He described the situation like this to me: “It is like going to the doctor before you are sick for advice, and all the doctor says is – Don’t worry I have plenty of medicine, come back when you are sick and I’ll give you medicine.” Or something along those lines. It is an interesting point. I do believe the cameras are good but I wish we’d hear a little more about some of the preventative measures that are being taken to compliment the camera usage. To me it seems like they can’t be considered a panacea but should only be one part of a greater preventative plan. What do you guys think about these cameras? Are they useful or a simply a psychological salve?
