The limits of using video cameras to stop crime

Here are some pictures of the looters following the July 8th conviction of a former BART Police officer for involuntary manslaughter of Oscar Grant on January 1, 2009. July 8th is midsummer and yet all these looters are wearing snow suit jackets to protect them from being caught on video cameras. Is it any wonder why stores charge higher prices in heavily minority areas or that they are less likely to set up stores in those areas?

Instead of protesting peacefully, it appears that one possible injustice is to be answered with personal gain at the expense of others.

Also, one must consider why and how some prejudices come into existence.
