Bakersfield police planning video cameras downtown to fight crime. Your thoughts?
The most interesting read in The Californian today was its piece detailing how Bakersfield police are planning to install five cameras downtown to help fight crime. I both live and work downtown and don't have a problem with this, particularly given some of the bad elements that roam our central city streets. (read the full story here) One of the cameras will be placed near 19th and Eye streets, a corner that has seen its share of violence in the past. What is your take?
