Security Cameras Capturing People In The Act – Of Being Awesome




It’s been a brutal election season. It seems that our nation is irreparably divided, but we are still good people. Sometimes you have to look for it and sometimes you accidentally find it. With security cameras everywhere, they are bound to find people at their best as well as at their worst.


Watch this video and enjoy. And next time you see a security camera, let them catch you doing something really awesome.

23. Last line of 1984, Orwell says of Winston, "He loved Big Brother."

Yeah, it's a cute vid, but I'm appalled that any of those vids have gone anywhere without court orders. I can't wait for the vid from the airport scanners...

33. yeah

but what shit we see,on TV world's dumbest partiers,world's most shocking crimes,accidents etc.

We are disconnected from one another,and even though it's security cameras it shows A different side of humanity, one I forgot existed.

If these cameras are there use them to bring people together,let them love and risk making new freinds,and soon security cameras will be pointless because people will know each other more and not let crimes hurt their friends .Like the guy jumping the robber in the video.If you knew a shop keeper and cared about his well being
and a guy was going to rob him and you could stop the robber and help your friend not get killed
would you be less inclined to by stand? If he was a stranger would you care less? or do you care regardless?


I don't by stand I made a commitment to myself years ago to never by stand,and I don't. Bystanders made the abuse and bullying that scarred me WORSE.So I decided to be better than the should have done, crowd.

Often it was just me taking action,but as soon as I moved to stop the injustice or danger,others helped. I have pushed stuck cars,given food away,bought coffee,gave up my place in line,let people rent rooms in my house cheaper than anywhere else,chewed out abusive people,stopped a child abuser with a swift punch in the solar plexus,stopped institutional abuse, talked people out of suicide,got a sick people medical help,got a bunch of people out and away from a starting haz mat situation,stopped people before they ran into cars,helped hurt animals,mediated arguments,helped people clean up,move,defended a homeless guy,and a shitload of other things. Why because I'm not a damn bystander,and...because I can...and I choose to care.

If I don't who will.Not very often am I the one walking away because others already were helping.

34. "soon security cameras will be pointless" -- security cameras aren't in place because ordinary

 

people don't trust each other, they're in place because the ruling class wants to spy on & control ordinary people -- and, incidentally, teach them to mistrust each other and like security cameras.

They're here now why not put them to use for OUR Good, someday maybe enough people will get mad at the invasion of privacy and demand their removal.

36. i don't understand how looking at happy pictures from security cameras makes us get mad at the

 

presence of security cameras.

my point is that looking at happy security pictures is more likely to lull us into the feeling that security cameras are harmless happy things.

28. Tell me about it

I've been watching Person of Interest for a while, mostly because I'm a huge Michael Emerson fan, but that takes on the creepiest parts of Total Information Awareness.

It's magnificent to see people acting cool while unaware that they are being watched. But then, they are still being watched. We all are. All of the time.

20. "Commit random acts of kindness and senseless beauty."

The vid was a little weak on senseless beauty but made up for it with inspired goofiness.

32. You know, if they made a show

Good people Caught on Camera... maybe people wouldn't be so scared of one another.

maybe there would be more love on earth,maybe more friendships,more fun,more of everything that makes us/me feel alive.

I wish Free Speech TV,Current or Link,would start a trend with this, hidden camera catches good people thing, and the idea catches on.I know about the failure of the good news newspaper(not christian) that reported good things people did, but something about SEEING it,it brought joy in my heart.Thanks,Segami For posting this.

Sometimes I get depressed ,my triggers kick my ass and I forget love is also part of life in this world. I think people are on the cusp of realizing we need each other to fill the holes in our hearts that deep longing for companionship ,that need that corporations exploited in creating this lonely consumer culture./ownership domination..crap.The assholes for generations manipulated and abused and lied to us even to our very souls for profit ,they seek a world without love preaching from every place we look almost with advertizements for things,to replace the love we need the community that sustains us,our relationships,as if things could fill those holes.Only a sociopath can thrive in a world without love.
A world without love literally kills those with the capacity to love but are afraid like they have been conditioned to be.

That video makes me happy,now I want to go outside and meet new friends.today
