Ned Ludd Rides Again!

A kidnapped young girl was recently reunited with her family in San Jose. Police were helped, in part, by a videotape shot from a surveillance camera mounted on a neighbor's garage (see "San Jose Police Release Videotape Of Nine Year Old Girl's Kidnapping"). The militant privacy advocates are already asking if this is another step towards Big Brotherism. Get over it! The camera is looking at a public street. Anyone walking by, driving by or standing on the corner could have seen what the surveillance camera recorded. There's no privacy being invaded here!
Chalk up the reaction as just one more bit of evidence that the neo-Luddites are even present within the high tech community.
