Only fools think surveillance cameras deter crime.

The only thing that deters bad people with evil in their hearts is a good guy with a gun.

And gun-hating leftists argue that we should keep the law-abiding disarmed on public transportation…  as if nothing bad ever happens on public transportation!


More CTA cameras haven’t stopped increase in crime

Chicago (Sun-Times) – Even with $26 million in high-resolution cameras finally in full force last year, reported crime at CTA rail stations rose 21 percent, a Chicago Sun-Times analysis shows.

And compared with 2010 — well before most of the CTA’s current 3,600 rail station cameras were installed — station crime was up 32 percent.

  1. Phone and jewelry snatching a happen every day on the CTA. Anyone with any sense does all they can to avoid riding them. In the rare instances where the thugs are caught, the limp wristed courts let me go most of the time! Chicago has a jail funding problem as much as a gang problem. The cost of crime is low in Chicago.
