Take a look at the article above. Hmmm. I don’t really want us to focus on the robbery so much as about the idea of having cameras all around us. Are we on video all the time not matter where we go? Is this a good thing or a bad thing? What justification either for or against can you offer about the ubiquitous nature of cameras and videos?



OH MY GOSH! THAT IS SCARY! Well actually, that is awesome! I would have never thought to have cameras at my house, but that is awesome that the camera caught the lady and the car on camera while she was stealing from the home. I think that in this society today it is necessary to have video surveillance. It makes it easier to stop crime or catch people. So that brings me to the topic: what our society is coming to.


It is very sad to me that our society is coming down to having to have advanced technology in our homes in order to feel safe. Not just in our homes but in the world in general. There are video cameras everywhere!!!! But that still does not mean that catching people on camera will ensure safety.


During the summer, my friend had her phone stolen at the Speedway on Bardstown Road across the street from Ditto’s. They caught the lady who stole her phone on camera. I think people are so DUMB who steal in a public place where it is known that there are video cameras everywhere recording. However, after the trial we had to go to a few weeks ago, the lady was released by the reasoning that the video recording did not justify if it was the woman that the police had caught. MY FRIEND AND ME recognized this woman as soon was we SAW HER! All in all, I was VERY frustrated with my experience with video cameras.


I think that having video cameras everywhere we go is a good idea. Due to the fact that there is crime out there in the world and with new technology we can find the criminals easier. But I mean they should have better quality cameras that can actually have a good shot of the person caught on camera to make an easier facial recognition.
