    Yes, because cameras will be able to reveal identity, address and phone number. Not. You have seen security pictures from bank robberies, right? You do realize even if there were witnesses, they won’t talk to police either because they fear for their own safety or don’t trust the police, right? It’s so easy for you to criticize the police from behind the screen of your computer. If you are such a great police officer, why don’t you get off your butt, get out there and see what it’s really like. They are frustrated time and again because witnesses won’t cooperate. How are you supposed to catch the offenders under a veil of silence? Get a grip. Take yourself a nap.

    That, in and of itself is discrimination as well as a dangerous assumption. Not to mention just plain ignorant. You can fight racism with more racism. Derp.
