    How much “freedom” & “privacy” shall we allow to be sacrificed under the false label of security….a police state does not insure the safety of the people….only eventually takes it all away..

    Don’t you just love it when ACLU attorneys who live in nice homes in safe areas tell residents of gang infested cities how they should live. Spend a night in Jerome park and see how long you don’t want cameras there helping you.

      Did you read the article?

      Because if you had you would have read that the ACLU did NOT weigh in on this:

      “Though the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) did not respond to requests for comment, they have posted multiple articles against the use of surveillance cameras.”

      And:

      “While the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution offers some protection against video searches conducted by the police, there are currently no general, legally enforceable rules to limit privacy invasions and protect against abuse of CCTV systems,” said the ACLU in a statement on their website.”

      So, are you against people having opinions too?

        You’re right, the six separate paragraphs that refer to the ACLU’s comments on the subject have absolutely nothing to do with this story even though they were included and deal directly with the topic. Clearly you don’t get the point of my disagreement with their comments.

          The ACLU made no comments, nor took any position on SA’s park situation.

          The authors of the article took some quotes from some articles off their website, but that hardly qualifies as ACLU attorney’s telling “residents of gang infested cities how they should live”.

    “Adding cameras gives the community an extra level of security. The idea of putting security cameras was to allow police, and Park and Rec to be able to monitor activity in the parks when we didn’t have staff there, and to see what was going on in certain times and areas. Park and Rec could then respond, as well as allow police to respond to problems we observe.

    THIS IS A LIE! – Parks and Recreation are NOT Security Guards for the Police.

    “It’s been five years of waiting for security cameras. How much longer do we have to wait?” asked citizen Abigail Alvarez.

    Spanish – 70 to 90 percent of Santa Ana is Latino/Mexican.
