Are law enforcement cameras an invasion of privacy?

    Of course what they catch on camera when you are pulled over on the highways, can also help justify you, if you are innocent

      They often pull you over for nothing, to shake you down for money, then tell you it's for your safty.

        They don't do that here, and would be fired from the job if it's proven that they did.
        Here they have cameras
        Where do you live? I believe you said Canada. No they aren't allowed to take your money unless it's drug money, and they have to keep that in the Evidence room

        Do the police there actually make people give their money to them? Here if they did that they would be charged with theft
        The only people in the US who are afraid of cops, are those who have committed a crime.
        We in general have no fear of them

          Believe me it's worse in the States, more violents, too. About 1% of American are in prison, 87% of them for non violent
          crimes.

            I think you have the wrong idea about the US. We have a lot more people, and we let everyone in. But violence is not something you see, except when shown on the news, or if you live in a bad area
            I don't see America as worse. Have you actually lived here, and are speaking from experience, or are you guessing, or have been taught that? I'd like to know where you get your info from
            Here are the countries with the highest murder rate. America isn't listed there
            http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/1 … 25188.html

            In America most of the crimes has to do with robbery, and drugs,
            I live in Los Angeles California, and the most notorious crimes are auto theft, then drug dealing, and robbery. But there are 38,802,500 people in California
            This town is full of different types of people too.
            Funny but females steal cars as often as the men do here in LA

            1% of Americans are in Prison? I don't think so
            It works out to be 0.49%
            (if the two numbers I found are actually accurate)
            There are, as of 2014, 318.9 million people in America and 1.57 million inmates. So that works out to be less than half of your declared 1%


            1.57 is what percent of 318.9
            = 1.57 / 318.9
            = 0.004923

            Converting decimal to a percentage:
            0.004923 * 100 = 0.49%

    No more than cameras in department stores or gas stations. I'm not sure you can really expect much privacy when you're in public, especially with everyone having photo/recording abilities on their phones.

    Doesn't bother me one bit.

      Me either, I think it would bother those who have something to hide the most, and the rest  are probably just those people who are really into privacy

        I've traveled 49 states and lived in 3 of them. One time made most of my money there and half of my relietived. The public have nearly 300 million guns in fear of tyranny from the Government.

          Who is afraid of what government? Not Americans.
          No one in their right mind who lives in America fears tyranny from our government
          We don't have contact with the government unless it's election time, and unless we see them round about town, and we most certainly don't fear them. Our government/citizen relationship is relaxed, like every day people.
          If you are saying you lived here, and those were the conditions in America, then I have to say you're making it up.
          Anyone who lives, or has lived here, knows it's not true, you're fibbing roll why are you doing that?

          Do you actually think people have guns in America because they fear the government? not true, not even a little bit

            Building a tiny home eco village and living there. Plan B is excaping to my
            eco village in Belize. For when,
            not if the
            American dollar
            collaspes, there
            be wars and a
            great depression
            that people either were aware of or prepared for.
            Cameras are not
            there for just your
            protection, they
            are there to spy
            too. Guns are not
            there for just
            protection from
            criminals murdering your
            family, your 8
            times more likely
            to kill yourself or
            kill someone you
            know than kill the criminal. Some use guns for
            hunting, it's
            cheaper to buy
            food.

                You are going to find that Castlepaloma is completely bat-guano crazy and will spout a bunch of nonsensical gibberish about everything and anything except what the question was or the actual subject of the Hub.

                Best to ignore him or your question about police body/dash cams (a subject about which I do have some expertise) will end up as a debate on the mating habits of the Guatemalan water snake.
