This is an outrageos invasion of privacy. I could not believe while reading this is happening in States, not somewhere in north Korea. Remember, when the idea of security cameras was first discussed with public, we were told we will benefit at the end of the day. There were horrible scary criminals out there, killeres rapists and drug dealers of all sorts. And the public said yes, we would sacrifice some of our freedoms in the noble exchange for safety of our kids and our lifestyle. Now the comparison with North Korea becomes more and more obvious. Really, the same signs of a military state. Somebody in power (mpaa in our case) is made uncomfortable (doesnt get as much money as desired). Solution- well, instead of writing formal complaints to the local police, city authorities, the state of LA and finally the senate why dont we buy a few ten dollar toys, explain LAPD how good it is to be friendly with us (because we Are the power) and simply make the silly Joe behave, that is buy “proper” stuff, the one We sell. Oh, yes, because the Joe is the reason for our pain in the pants, he should ultimately pay for the whole show. This is sad. It is just too painful to see how rapidly we are loosing the democracy our heroes spilled blood and died for. All i can offer is a suggestion to the LA citizens. If you dont like being watched by mpaa or anybody else with money- do with the damn things what you’d do if somebody tried to put one in your own home, Anything to protect your rights. No cheers today. FidelC.
