Doesn't matter. They will still omit the facts about who is committing the crimes downtown. "Be on the lookout for 3 men robbing Ga. Tech students" is all we'll get from this.

Midtown atlanta has already been 'big brothered' for the past few years; personally i find it uncomfortable. But that's what happens when you lose your 'rights of privacy' due to the PATRIOT ACT of 2001.

I have a suggestion; tell us what was REALLY going on. Were you making all kinds of noise while tossing a Frisbee or a ball in the middle of the night? Did your ball bounce off your neighbor's house, car or child "by accident"? The cops won't waste their time with neighborhood gripes unless you give them a reason. Most of the time it's kids or adults who act like kids and think they have a "Right" to be as loud as they like.

We had a house like that on our street. The cops would come by to tell them to run the stereo down and like ignorant magic, they'd cleverly turn it back up the moment the cops were back up the street. Only this time somebody was getting it all on video. This video wasn't shown to the cops, it was shown to a lawyer who took the owners of the house to court and sued them for various things related to poorly managed rental property.

See, we really don't need the cops to deal with unruly, punk-azz neighbors who like to disturb the whole block. We can simply take their landlord to civil court and place a lien on their house. Either way, the offending punks are GONE!

Only criminals have to fear cameras recording their actions. Sad the cameras are here, but crime is so pervasive in Atlanta you must blame the criminal thugs for the presence of the cameras. The cameras record the truth, and it may set you free or get you incarcerated. Your future depends upon today's actions so the criminal thugs should blame themselves and not the cameras.

You have a problem with being a part of a civil society or do you prefer the laws of the jungle? If people behaved themselves, there would be no need for cameras and constant monitoring of the folks in the hood, the projects, and downtown. Someday you be lying in the gutter looking up and wonder whay happened to your last forty years. What a wonderful life to look forward to.

Before thugs ruled Atlanta there were no cameras recording our every move. I don't like the thugs or the cameras, just as I don't care for police in our schools, but the thugs have taken over our county and city, and Mayor Mohammad and his police have mandated these become a necessity for citizens to live any semblance of a free life. Blame the criminal thugs for our loss of privacy. It's just another piece of our property we cherish they have stolen. They will get more if we do not remove the thugs. I suggest you become an enlightened license weapon carrier as I am.
