Security should take precedence over privacy
It baffles me how people can really be concerned about their privacy at a time such as this [“Image analysis helps Boston probe, raises worries for privacy advocates,” page one, April 21]. To me, it seems that the most concerned people would be the criminals themselves.
I think it is a great thing that law enforcement was able to find the two suspects with surveillance cameras and cellphones. If law enforcement officers were unable to “infringe upon people’s privacy,” the two men responsible for this tragedy would still be at large.
I know I would like the United States to catch more dangerous criminals, even if it means my privacy is a little jeopardized in the process.
