I almost never post here, though I'm a daily visitor. But since I'm from Rhode Island I decided to look up my password to log in and post a reply
with my 2 cents. And just so you have an idea about me......I'm about the biggest conspiracy theroist out there.....but I'm an informed one. Anyway,
being a younger guy in Rhode Island, I can tell you that the places you've sited OP, those are all area where there are alot of trouble makers, and
punks, and fights, and some crimes at certain times. Especially at the bus station and the high school. (for people not from this area, Providence has
some of the worst kids around in the HSs. Every day there are horror stories from teachers about all these "urban" and ethnic kids causing problems.
It's getting really bad here in Providence schools, and on the streets in general) So just using faimliarity with the area, and a little bit of
educated presumption, I'd come to the conclusion that there is more than likely some type of surveillance system in these area that are down at the
time. And since this is such a small area, it could all just be one system for these areas. Or perhaps it's being upgraded. And since Rhode Island
has been making alot of cuts, and alot of people have been complaining about our budget, the police are under-staffed right now, so instead having
already busy cops out there just keeping an eye out for trouble while the cameras are down, they just call in some National Guard guys n' gals for
about a week.
Of course, that's just my theory. Aside from certain facts I laid out, it's just conjecture on my part. I wouldn't know if the surveillance system
is down or not. I suppose I don't even KNOW one's in place. But if I ran the place, those would be a couple of the areas I put cameras up.
