I'm one of the five resident 'libs' and I think the door cams are great. Instead of the neighbors suspecting every black jogger they have actual footage of whoever is taking crap. Much more reality based.


Be prepared to learn that whites and females can also commit theft. And teenagers from 'good families' as well. And sometime your package was not even delivered to your house. Hannah down the road is soaking in whatever precious Ronan Fields concoction you want to fight over.

Thank you. Our "academics" in liberal arts fields are the first to declare racism where it doesn't exist. I skimmed the article quickly and didn't find it.

So he's implying package thieves are mostly black, which I'm not buying.

Once again, the loons on the left are quick to bash the people they claim to be advocates for.

And as far as crime being down - that's a meaningless statement if these types of crimes are up.

Yet you didn't quote this line. How odd....

Critics complain that the systems turn neighborhoods into places of constant surveillance and create suspicion that falls heavier on minorities.

Have you seem some of the videos of "package "bombs"" where people put video cameras and a device to spread the contents of the package around when a thief opens it? One person had a "glitter bomb" that covered the inside of the thief's car with glitter and a stink bomb of some sort. Another did the same but with dog crap. It's hilarious. In today's backasswords justice system, it's likely the poor thief will end up suing the victim over those though.

For the record my personal stereotype for porch pirates has always been white meth head types. I'm not surprised at all to hear much of the footage these cameras are recording seems to back that stereotype up. Most stereotypes exist for a reason.

Only the Leftist whites are. They learned that using race works to get people's attention and that blacks in particular are sensitive to it and thus will unwittingly go along with their Leftist crusade as soon as they label the other side as racists.
