Almost every night the news shows video of a robber or killer caught on camera. It just doesn't seem to stop them from taking the risk. What I like to see is where the cameras are monitored by professionals with police support at the ready to intervene in real time. The Framer Jack store in Dearborn Heights used to have such a system. Twice I saw their "risk management" people run into the parking lot and lay an NFL tackle on shoplifters. Then the police quickly arrived to make the arrest. Caught in flagrante delicto.
