Give po­lice the tools they need

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Sally Staele, Baltimore

We have so much crime in our city that it is hard for me to be­lieve that any­one wouldn’t want the po­lice to have greater sur­veil­lance ca­pa­bil­i­ties (“State pub­lic de­fender’s of­fice calls for im­me­di­ate sus­pen­sion of Baltimore po­lice sur­veil­lance pro­gram,” Aug. 29).

If you say you are afraid of “Big Brother,” aren’t you even more afraid of what crime is do­ing to our city and its hon­est cit­i­zens? Many of us are suf­fer­ing the ef­fects of the city’s high crime rate while oth­ers are try­ing to pro­tect the crim­i­nals.

I think the sur­veil­lance study should be com­pleted; maybe it will help find a good way to stop the law­break­ers. They are hurt­ing us.
