The doorbell-camera company Ring has quietly forged video-sharing partnerships with more than 400 police forces across the United States, granting them potential access to homeowners' camera footage and a powerful role in what the company calls the nation's "new neighborhood watch."

Gee Tommy,

A the proud owner of a Ring doorbell, I kind of like the idea. I can see where some would call it an invasion of privacy, and I can see where it could in some cases be used against someone, but I kind of like the idea.

Gosh, times have changed. I remember when police "neighborhood watch" was spelled Stasi.

I can see the proud owners of Ring doorbells ringing up high social credit scores.

Anyone who watches live soccer games on TV (where you have the luxury of close-ups) will notice the players often covering their mouths while conversing with each other.
