However the mostly black neighborhood had five cameras installed because of the high crime rates. Why didn’t they just put 2 in each neighborhood that would have not been so racists right?

The cameras are for the crime, not the color of the residents. Only the idea that the cameras should be evenly distributed is ba<x>sed on racism.

Best Answer

Oh no the person that said it was racism is not going to be happy with this answer. Perhaps the crime rate will go up in the other neighborhood so we can have a PC world.

Best Answer

well said.

Best Answer

An actuality the crime rate in the other neighborhood would probably not rise. High numbers of criminals probably do not live in the safer neighbor hood,, And, if the bad guys are being caught in the other neighborhood, then they are less of a threat to the safer neighborhood.

Best Answer

no, that would have been silly, the goal was to reduce crime by being able to catch the criminals, so logically you would go find them where the most crime is occurring and in your example would the second neighborhood.

Oh your to old school with common sense.

Best Answer

sadly you maybe right.

Best Answer

Next you will be saying stuff like we need people with business backgrounds in government. Oh my God the world would end.

Best Answer

Or saying things like we need to stop spending money we don't have.

Best Answer

The problem with government is that few people with financial backgrounds are employed there. Remember $400 toilet seats?

Your theory of racism here is flawed. <br />
There is limited funding to pay for surveillance cameras and monitoring them. It is logical and effective that cameras would be placed in high crime areas. <br />
the racial makeup of the high crime area makes no difference. <br />
If you were placing security cameras on your home and you could only afford 2 cameras, you would probably install them with a view of your doors. You would not place one of the cameras with a view limited to your kitchen. The same basic theory applies here. <br />
Perhaps you should be less interested in finding alleged racism and more interested in the reduction of crime.

Best Answer

Well they could have just borrowed the money to put in the other cameras. I mean the Govt needs to be PC at any cost right.

Best Answer

They probably "borrowed" the money to install the ones that they have in place. Most capital projects by governments are financed through bonds. And, BTW, you and I, taxpayers have to pay for them. PC is BS.

Best Answer

Well they should have raised the water rates to pay off the bonds. I mean people waste to much water anyways. PC is not BS go any Govt Office building & they will tell the truth.

Best Answer

What does water rates have to do with bonds for other projects? What alternative universe do you live in?
