The Neighbors Are Watching Via Surveillance Video

With all the stories about governments or corporations becoming "Big Brother", it turns out that Big Brother might just be next door. In the latest kidnapping case in California, police say that one of the best initial leads they got came from the surveillance camera of the next door neighbor. Clearly, it's a good thing that such a camera helped lead to information that let the police track down the kidnapper. However, it certainly does raise some privacy issues. Yes, it's nice to have a world where people are unlikely to commit a crime since they're always being watched, but do we really want a world where no one has any real privacy?
