Let the extra eyes help police

So you don’t want drones.

At first, you didn’t want the cameras recording you going through a red light. Then, you didn’t want traffic surveillance cameras, and don’t put the cameras on buildings.

People have been reporting car break-ins more than ever, not to mention the mailboxes being broken into. You tell police to do something about it. Well, now they are, and you’re still complaining.

Let them do their job. They don’t want to watch you, unless you are the crook, otherwise they couldn’t care less. You just cannot have it both ways. Either let them help us or stop the complaining.

Someone can watch you while you watch TV, but you still do. Everything can be hacked, but it doesn’t stop us from using our phones, emailing and all else.

Next time your car or mailbox is broken into, too bad.
