I saw this posted by someone in a nearby neighborhood:

I'm very thankful that I have good neighbors. I have a neighbor who just put up security cameras at her house, she lives behind me and her cameras pick up any activity in my back yard! Great neighbor in more than just one way.

Great neighbor, if you are actually comfortable with your neighbors recording everything that goes on in your backyard!

I see the advantage in the case of nefarious activity, and I've accepted that privacy is not what it used to be, but surely this is going too far. A 24-hour Peeping Tom? And I'm supposed to be grateful?

Come to think of it, I actually have no idea what our neighbors are recording. If you see us on YouTube, let me know.

Do you have anything to hide?
Are you skinny dipping in your pool or sun-bathing in your birthday suit?
It's not about peeping.
We are living in perilous times...

And if I wanted to skinny-dip in my pool or sunbathe in the nude, that's not illegal or even rude: our yard is fenced, and at the top of a hill at that. If you are seeing into my yard, you are definitely "peeping." I'm totally with the guy who shot down the drone that repeatedly circled over his teenaged daughter in their yard!

"Do you have something to hide?" and "We live in perilous times" can be (and have been) used to justify the most egregious violations of human rights.
