You'll see people talking
walking and texting and no one's happy about Verizon being forced to turn over
records on customers.
"We are the government,
they wouldn't be squat it not for our taxes that they keep squandering on
stupid nonsensical things they're squandering them on," says Rebecca from Gulf
Shores. Many people see the phone grab
as a huge breech of privacy. Just
stepping outside you lose some privacy.
Around downtown mobile the police department runs a network of nearly
two dozen cameras. You can find one just
about every two blocks. At the Battle House
Hotel you'll find five security cameras. Using your credit card you give up
data on what you buy--it's hard to keep anything private.
"The government needs to
strike a balance between what is good for the country security wise and what is
good for us as citizens as we talk on the phone," says Israel Lewis from
Mobile. The Verizon controversy has people
talking about how to protect their rights.
"People need to know
what's in the constitution, the bill of rights, people need to be educated,
speaking up like we're doing right now," says Angela Styczenski from
Gulfport. Customers of other carriers
say they wonder if the government is pulling their records too.
