Getting way off topic, but what are the annual costs to the City re: the pension costs and social services. I suspect much of the latter costs are for children and the elderly. You cannot make those arguments without knowing the numbers.

Another thing that muddies this up a bit is whether the City as a whole benefits from facilitating these events - is it better that there is a Stockadeathon, Summer Block Party, St. Anthony's Festa,...?

Agreed, this is a loss.

I think the biggest issue is that a private entity, able to afford to pay for cops as private security, is incurring a cost that a third party (taxpayer) must shoulder (pension liability).

This could get messy.

It was a reasonable question. While I am aware of incidents like these occurring elsewhere I do not recall any reports, certain non recently, of this type of behavior. The Gazette being a local paper, I was assuming that was the audience this commentary was directed to. In fact, they were reacting to a local incident, or more accurately - a local example of a national phenomenon.

ChuckD - You see things I don't. This article was clearly about interference with the media and civilian's right to film officers' behavior in public.

How often has this happened within this reporting area?

I've seen reports of it elsewhere, but do not recall a local incident outside of this one.

Apparently the judge didn't feel that way. The point you were trying to make was clear, the rationale as to why she would receive it was missing.

Agreed, he left money on the table to return home.

Yes, it's easy to appreciate what the privacy concerns could be, but, this article seemed to raise a concern about simply being monitored at this particular public event. I do not disagree at all that this technology could be abused re: privacy issues. Additionally, as the editorial page pointed out today there are significant safety issues. A few weeks back, a pair were arrested in NYC because their recreational use of a drone endangered a helicopter in flight.

Agreed, there was already an incident in NYC re: a helicopter and a small privately owned drone being used for recreational purposes.
