    So, a private company will be monitoring and recording us as we use the Tobacco Trail. Um, thanks, I guess?

    Will we be getting any statements on what CB will do with this footage? I'd LIKE to think that they'll report suspicious activity to the police, turn over recordings if required for an investigation, and delete the recordings after a reasonable period.

    I'd also like to think that they won't turn it into a reality program, showcasing our largest joggers and clumsiest bikers, all set to Yakety Sax. From what I've seen in this article, though, there are no promises.

    May we have a little accountability and transparency, please?

    sooo has anyone stolen the cameras yet?

  • 68_dodge_polara Jan 24, 9:10 a.m.

    Thanks, that should do, well nothing... The problem isn't catching the criminals it's keeping them behind bars. How often do you read about murder suspects being arrest and not also being charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm? Why do you think that is? If they were were they belong we would have these problems on the trail or any other.

    So after you get robbed, murdered, and raped, the video footage will show a possible suspect. Ace.

    So, what will the justice system actually do to the "Thu ggie Juniors" once they are caught on video committing their crimes? Slap on the wrist and release b ack into society to continue their thu g ways...

    Why would this be reported? Cameras can be removed if the "bad guys" know where they are. Just sayi g.

    Err, there are no "no guns allowed" signs on the ATT. Go read their website. Unloaded guns are permitted.

  • romneycare Jan 23, 7:46 p.m.

    The person(s) who commit the crimes are prolly reading this lol . the cameras location should be hidden with warnings at the front about the trail under surveillance

  • Titus Pullo Jan 23, 6:29 p.m.

    Round up the usual suspects. A total waste of money.

  • trianglerelic Jan 23, 6:01 p.m.

    An inexpensive way to solve this problem. Take down the signs for NO GUNS ALLOWED and replace them with new ones that read "Legally Owned, Licensed Firearms, Pepper Spray, and Stun Guns are NOT Prohibited here".. Make the Muggers think twice about..

  • junkmail5 Jan 23, 5:37 p.m.

    Next weeks headline "first security camera stolen from American Tobacco Trail"

  • BlahBlahBlahBlahBlah Jan 23, 4:55 p.m.
