Police use surveillance to identify criminals
Downtown needs more cameras
I see in local television coverage that the police are seeking public assistance in identifying a criminal by viewing footage from a surveillance camera.
Seems that every week or so we see surveillance-camera footage on the news accompanied by a request for public assistance. Aren’t these the same kind of cameras that the American Civil Liberties Union is so adamantly against?
As downtown Seattle gets more of a reputation as being unsafe after dark, I would be happy to see more cameras, not fewer, when I visit your fair city.
