Readers kinda like those cameras

The law-abiding have no reason to object

Spy cam ubiquity

I have all four cameras everywhere (“San Diego’s street lights that spy,” Cover Stories, February 29). It is not a matter of privacy, it is a matter of security. A lot of crimes can be solved by the unbiased witness of a video camera. There’s a TV show about it on Discovery ID called See No Evil. If you ever have a loved one become a victim of a crime, you will wish for every one of the cameras to help solve it.

If businesses can have cameras on their property overseeing streets for their security purposes, and our law enforcers have access to them, how can there be any objection to all of us chipping in to spot and track miscreants? The same with license recording plates so we can spot and capture criminals; the law-abiding have no reason to object to these security measures, except for the connotation of being watched; who cares if we/re not doing anything wrong, and not wanted by the police?

Community HousingWorks (CHW) would like to correct a misunderstanding in the article “New Linda Vista apartments welcomes present tenants” dated December 18, 2018. The article states the following: In August, Martinez told the group that city housing commission rules blocked giving the current residents priority. But she went back to the housing commission and it looks like the poorer residents will be able to come back once construction ends. In addition, the article includes the following quote: “We petitioned the housing commission to allow people to return to the housing if they are eligible.” CHW would like to clarify that the Linda Vista community led this effort, not CHW. The Linda Vista Planning Group (LVPG) and the Linda Vista Town Council (LVTC) initiated the request to the San Diego Housing Commission. CHW strongly believes that it is important to recognize the local advocacy of these groups, and their efforts to respond to a neighborhood issue. Both the LVPG and LVTC should be commended for their initiative.
