I listened to you on the latest EFF video and you're very disappointing
and need to step down from your position with EFF.
You laid down the false narrative that by enforcing the law on jumping
of subway turnstiles causes racism. Frankly, you are an idiot.
There is more criminal activities in communities like Harlem and East
New York and Coney Island. You're position lacks any reality and
encourages dangerous criminal activity. It is a direct threat to the
safety of me and my family.
There needs to be more policing in the communities, not less. Those
communities are, as a fact, a danger to themselves and represent a real
danger to everyone else. I HATE surveillance, but if a camera can
encourage law enforcement of Subway Turnstile jumpers city-wide. SO BE
IT. I am sick of being pissed on in the Subway and being threatened
with violence. What bothers me is how that data is now stored and
further used. Instead of IDing and tracking everyone, if should just ID
the crime and leave investigation and enforcement to the police. The
rest of the data should be deleted.
It is not just a technology issue, but a legal and ethical one. You're
mixing in the race card based on a false narrative kills your integrity
to every honest working person in the City of New York.
You're mixing up surveillance issues with the prosecution of criminal
activities. Survalence concerns me more than they do you and I have
been working on these issues since before you were a HS student, or
perhaps before your birth. Prosecuting criminal activities and public
policing is a completely different issue. They are two separate
issues. But FWIW, you need MORE policing in these communities, not
less. Anyone who believes otherwise is a bigot.
As far as the policing issue is concerned, you are off your rocker.
These streets in these areas are dangerous. They need more policing and
You are not helping EFF. You are an enemy of the people, and ruthless
with a lack of compassion for your fellow human beings.
I DARE YOU to come to my Pharmacy on E132nd and Madison avenue and work
for two weeks. Aside from being physically attacked, you will see the
broad open dealing of drugs, and gun shootings that happen daily... so
much so that they are not even reported. People live in fear, always.
You REALLY are a bad human being. You just don't give a damn about people
Everyone, no matter where they are born and where they live should have
a right to live in a relatively safe community without fear of being
shot down by gangs and assaulted on the subway. Everyone deserves equal
protection under the law and justice is either blind, or it is not
justice at all.
