“Mayor Greg Stanton wants to video tape law abiding football fans.  It’s absurd that the Mayor of Phoenix thinks it’s OK to send Phoenix PD into Tempe to create a video profile of football fans.    What happens with the video the Mayor thinks we should keep?  The public should expect a reasonable level of privacy from their government.  That means you cannot monitor their everyday activity without a direct policy and/or chain of command of approval before monitoring their activities.  There should be reasonable cause to have the government enter your private life.  Mayor Stanton used politician language meant to confuse the public without answering the question.  What level of privacy should a normal citizen expect from their government?  That is the question that I asked.  That is not the question he answered.”
