It is sort of creepy to have complete strangers watching you, but is does increase safety and security, so I am all for it. If you are not doing anything illegal, so what? Look at how the security cameras captured that Times Square Muslim Terrorist who tried to blow up the car bomb. I am all for the cameras!
People really can't expect privacy when out in public. However, if the police or cities use surveillance cameras, there must be safeguards in place to ensure that the images and information gained from them are used for legitimate purposes. Additionally, since the cameras are in public places, the images should be accessible by the public. Surveillance systems should also have community input and oversight.

I'll agree as long as the people get to film cops, politicians, and "the watchers" in the public too. Oh wait....that's becoming illegal as we speak.

i know i hate the fact that its illegal to record officers w/o there consent , any one to be exact without it being illegal , but in turn law enforcement aways conduct surveillance like legal and illegal wire taps without consent , and warning , due to the fact they dont want to compromise their investigations but dont you think a person who was warned he is being tap will most likely consider following state and federal law because he is being "monitored"

No one ever questions the legality of filming pigs in public where I live because they are public officers. We even walk around in small groups with cameras and film them stopping people. It's called CopWatching and it's a great way of cutting back on state harassment in your community.

No offense but it sorta looks like you might have taken the blue pill. Are you really so willing to
give up your rights just to be safe? One of our forefathers had something to say to about that.
His name was Benjamin Franklin. He said "People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither". Now be a good little agent provocateur and take the red pill.
