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.
