Morality by Terrorism

Joe Cornell, 52, was working in the lot of a Salvation Army location as part of a substance abuse rehabilitation program when he saw a bag of cash fall out of the back of a Brinks armored cash transport car as it drove over railroad tracks in downtown Fresno.

  1. Don’t know if Mr Cornell did the «right» thing, but given the level of surveillance with which we are surrounded today, he certainly did the prudent thing.

    Long time ago, I read some science fiction where they had Big Brother cameras everywhere. But the ‘film’ went into a sealed vault which needed a warrant to open. The idea was that nobody could spy on you, but if there was a crime committed, THEN they could open up just the relevant ones.

    You’d be happy with that, right? If someone whacked you in the back of the head & stole your wallet, you wouldn’t mind if THAT was on tape.

    All it would take would be honest judges, honest politicians, honest cops…

    All in the name of order, of course.
