Another MCI Coming...for Girl Watching???
Reports from the TA indicate that another MCI is coming, this time for the "TV/Security System and Video Command Center." Now is this the same Video Command Center that has proven useless to prevent any crime that occurs here, discouraged true crime prevention in putting boots on the ground, and that we found out a couple of years ago "monitors" the bathing beauties at the Oval Lawn during the summer to the delight of Public Safety? Are tenants suppose to be paying for this???
UPDATE: I have to stress how outrageous is this MCI. This Video Command Center has never been proven to deter crime. In fact, there have been numerous recent reports of bicycles and mail/UPS packages being stolen, and I've yet to hear of the Video Command Center finding out who these culprits are. The only benefit these cameras have is that they take a photo (a hazy one at that) of a perpetrator if he is in the vestibule or elevator. But this is after the fact. The crime isn't stopped. On top of that, residents who used to go the management office were able to see just what is being looked at by the security staff: SpongeBob SquarePaints, Craig's List and, the hot show, Stuy Town girls in bikinis and micro-skirts and shorts. Plain and simple, tenants should not be paying for a useless, and misused, Video Command Center.
