NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — From eyes in the sky to your front porch, Metro police are now using a new video program, Connect Nashville, to help fight crime.

“As of this morning, we’ve had 456 cameras that have been registered,” said Robert Weaver, community coordinator for the Hermitage precinct.

The idea behind the program is quite simple. It allows community members to voluntarily link their Ring doorbell or security cameras to the Metro Nashville Police Department.

Connect Nashville: How your security cameras could help fight crime (

Hell, no! I don’t care what kind of help Nashville may need, but voluntarily giving them a chance to screw me is not something anybody with some basic knowledge of history would do.  The potential for misuse is just astronomical. Just imagine the Metro Council deciding to impose fines for a “violation” (Revenue collection) and using your camera as evidence collection to ram you a fine up your butt. Being surveilled by a former lover who happens to work for the government? Or maybe selling information of the comings and goings of a potential witness to some accused criminal waiting to be tried? And how the Fed is now behaving towards people they consider political enemies, it is not a stretch of the imagination that they would request access to the cameras to collect evidence against a mom who spoke against children being sexualized at school, or because they are anti-abortion and considered as radicalization threats.

Again: Hell, no!

  1. It’s frightening how easy it is to convince people to give up privacy aint it? Just like all this “smart” tech, why do you need any household appliances hooked to the internet?? Look at the cases of alexa “hearing” an “argument “ and next thing you know the cops show up for “domestic violence “….. ol Ben said it best- you give up liberty for security you deserve and get niether…

  2. The Civil Rights Lawyer on YouTube recently did a video on other ways you can be screwed by both the police and Ring:

  3. I do share my (hardwired) security camera footage with the local Sheriff on occasion. But that’s on a ‘case by case’ basis, and only on specific request. We are in a highly convenient traffic area where you have no business passing through unless you live out here. And if you don’t, your picture may end up on the ‘threat board’ – nothing happens unless you F*ck up out here. Then you’re screwed.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
