Letter to the Editor: Surveillance equipment not wanted in Lebanon

To the Editor:

I could not help but notice that the Lebanon Public Safety deployed its high-tech surveillance equipment on our public square this weekend. 

I assume everything that was said or done has been recorded. So, if you picked your nose, scratched your nether regions or spent time with someone you should not have, it may already be on YouTube or elsewhere. 

This smacks of a police state and big brother. Is this even legal? If so, who gets this information? What is it used for? Is there any oversight? What was the purpose of this anyway? Was it just to protect us from some young people taking their shirts off? 

I think that if we are trying to fight crime, there are several other locations it could have been better utilized.
