Yonge and Dundas Security Cameras Turned Off
City News is reporting that the Toronto Police are shutting off the cameras. It seems that they were only meant to be active during the busy holiday season. For what, deterring shoplifters? I'm all for privacy and whatnot, but the cameras were guarding a public place with high traffic. Days after they were turned on, shots were fired near Sam the Record Man, and having the cameras installed didn't exactly harm the investigation. The article quotes Tabitha Boland of Frankz eatery, wherein she supports the decision to shut off the cameras, citing that "It scares people away". Well, if it scares the people with guns and knives away, that's crantastic. I'm relatively certain that homicides are worse for business than a few security cameras.
