    Policing of the American Porch

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/19/s...-security.html

    The growth of easy-to-install home-surveillance equipment, and in particular doorbell cameras, has changed American life in ways obvious and subtle. Marketed in part as a solution to package theft, which has grown alongside e-commerce, especially from Amazon, Ring has found an ally in law enforcement.

    More than 500 police departments have partnered with the company, gaining access to a service called Neighbors Portal, which allows users to “ask Ring to request video footage from device owners who are in the area of an active investigation,” according to the company. (This footage is often shared by law enforcement with media organizations for broadcast segments.) Some police departments assist in marketing Ring devices to local citizens, in some cases offering government-subsidized discounts, according to documents obtained by Vice.

    I avoid Amazon whenever possible and I don't have ring or a doorbell camera. I don't even lock my van at night, but then I don't look like I have a lot to steal even though my tools are worth way more than the van

    This has proven to be a good deterrent against Injuns "borrowing" my stuff since I have installed cameras. Word must travel in that community, haven't even seen @oyarde sneaking around outside.

    I don't have a doorbell cam either. Doorbell hasn't even worked the past couple years until my dad recently fixed it a couple months back.
