    What good are the cameras? After someone is robbed, raped, shot, stabbed, or murdered, we are left with a fuzzy image of the perpetrator. That’s assuming the camera is working at all. We need someone patrolling the streets, to try to prevent the crimes from occurring in the first place.

    Actually, these are the cameras that DO work, and when a neighborhood bands together to put multiple cameras in the criminals move onto other areas that do not have cameras. Next time come to one of these meetings, they are really informative.
