I’m getting pretty tired of what amounts to a police state.
Yes, we can post video cameras absolutely everywhere, and Big Brother can track your vehicle, your face, your internet history, etc.
But really, do we want these “public servants” to know that much?
I want them less capable, less expensive and less knowledgeable about who I am and what I do.
And less interested......
But don’t try to film the same police officer if he/she stops you for something. Or comes up to talk to you for any reason what so ever. That’s worthy of a beating, a tasering, and stiff jail time.
While I find this disgusting in many ways, downtown Cleveland needed it badly because, again, of the few jacka$$es who ran redlights. And I mean nearly deadly instances of red-light running. But it is the same model applied in many different ways—penalize the majority because of the very few. Up the fines.
