Pay Per View Ghettocams Coming Soon?
Why aren’t Chicago's Ghettocam images broadcast on the Internet for all to see? Many people in Chicago’s crappy neighborhoods could watch their own homes, cars and business from anywhere. Knowing that Chicago’s politicians never met a tax they didn’t like, you'd think they’d be smart enough to charge a fee for access.
There’s an interesting story in today’s Chicago Sun Times: "I don't even sell drugs. I got a job ... I just like hanging out," said a construction worker from South Shore who asked to be identified only as Chris. The young black man standing near 71st and Paxton said he fears police retaliation. "They're watching us right now.... The cameras make you miserable, man."
