I don't know. I mean I love privacy, but this is one of those things were its just like having a regular cop on the street corner... one that wont plant evidence and the public can see through his eyes.

Imagine having these things roll through the most dangerous gang neighborhoods. protecting pedestrians at night.

There's a lot of positive things but don't forget the negatives, for example imagine that these things replace cops... How many people will lose jobs ?

Good. I think the vast majority of cops are being trained to be heartless, disrespectful jerks who get off on power. A machine cant get off on having power. A machine cant be racist... and a machine can be reprogrammed. Cops in general wont lose jobs since they still need to investigate crimes. Least this way no one is getting shot in gang territory. Least this way no innocents getting questioned for being too black in a white neighborhood.
