Yes, secret cameras on planes recording Baltimore from above is taking security too far. In fact, any form of security that does not inform the public of said security is taking security too far. The fact that these cameras are secret violate people's privacy. If they were in plain sight, then they would be ok.
Yes, secret cameras and planes recording Baltimore from above is taking security too far. There is no reason for all of this security. It does not make sense that this much security is being used. People still have a right to privacy. That is what is missing when there is so much surveillance.
In this day and age, it is necessary for any country to have the maximum amount of observation in order to detect internal threats. I would say we need even more in light of the recent attacks. To be honest, this is a fact of life too, it has really always been that way.
There are cameras in malls, on the street, and pretty much everywhere else anyway. What difference does it make if cameras on planes are seeing things from above? These cameras may help with things like stopping fires from spreading, as the smoke will be caught earlier than just by someone on the street.
I think some may view this as an invasion of privacy. However, these days with the amount of terrorist attacks and crime period can we be too safe. We need to make sure that no one is trying to attack us for any given reason so these cameras can help us stay safe and even to help nab the culprit when something does happen.
