Some Gay Rights Advocates Uneasy About Long Jail Time for Dharun Ravi - NYTimes.com
After the first WTC attack, bomb in a van in a parking garage, cameras went in all over downtown NYC, as an apparent "deterrent". Well, they're still there and even more today than then. When the camera phone was introduced a large change in the everyday traffic and commerce also changed. People learn new tech and make mistakes with it too. Where were the cameras on the NYC landmark George Washington Bridge? Pointed at the traffic. It's a long way, it seems to me, from Rutger's University. Putting Ravi in long-term lockup won't create legislation guaranteeing "privacy" an expectation we're told not to have even in the Post Office replacement ... e-mail. Terrible it was, but perhaps more to the motive.
