Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.

I’m having a good laugh right now because our associates just got collectively reprimanded for leaning on the counters during 8 hour shifts on their feet, because it isn’t “professional” looking.  So apparently they can put up with a camera over their shoulder to make sure they do their jobs correctly, but a cop with a gun cant?  

Do cops want CCTV cams removed from businesses and streets? If they don’t want to monitored on their jobs, why should everyone be monitored at theirs (and in their LIVES)? Oh, it makes cops’ job easier to have a video record of crimes and infractions? Huh.
HUH.

I work in an office and not retail, but I also know that every website I visit, and instant message or email I send is monitored and stored by my employer.

Also, surveillance cameras in public areas are nearly everywhere in America, watching just about everything completely innocent people are doing.Police should be held to a higher standard than the public they are sworn to protect, and the data shows that cops equipped with cameras are simply better cops.

Its not that we should put up police at a higher standard, it is when they put that uniform on and pin that badge is when police officers need to hold themselves at a higher standard because it is part of their job description.

I’m honestly thinking this is a troll, but if it’s not:

" … nothing but curse language …" Really?

"It’s a numbers game, but shit don’t add up somehow
Like I got, 16 to 32 bars to rock it
But only 15% of profits ever see my pockets like
69 billion in the last 20 years
Spent on national defense but folks still live in fear like
Nearly half of America’s largest cities is one-quarter black
That’s why they gave Ricky Ross all the crack
16 ounces to a pound, 20 more to a ki
A 5-minute sentence hearing and you’re no longer free …”
Mos Def

"A generation overly obsessed with mobsters
Our revolutionaries won Grammys and Oscars
Impostors, fake auras and weak chakras
Makin’ a mockery of the music to be pop stars.”
Pharoahe Monch

"Individual stars float in the ocean of God
Rocking a pinky ring of Saturn while I’m visiting Mars
Egos bigger than Jupiter are breaking the bars
Holding me back down to Earth to physical laws.”
Cise Starr

"She said, she never fell in love with a Superman,
Christian, Muslim, Protestant, Lutheran
I told her that being a mortal is the portal
to the true nature of growth, the Christ-like Buddha-man.”
- Jay Electronica

"Somebody tell these shorties reach for the stars
Instead they tell ‘em how to reach through the bars.”
Nas

"Imagine life at it’s full peak
Then imagine lying dead in the arms of your enemy
Imagine peace on this Earth when there’s no grief
Imagine grief on this Earth when there’s no peace.”
Scarface

As far as country music being a better genre than Hip-Hop …

Music is, of course very subjective to our personal tastes, whether a genre is “better” is a pointless argument. However, to state in any way that Hip-Hop is inferior to country or any genre, which is the implication, is asinine. 

There are more lyrics in one verse of a Hip-Hop song than an entire country song. The lyrics above demonstrate on their own the complexity of lyricism in Hip-Hop compared to that of other genres. It is an advanced form of poetry.

Then compare the depth and innovation that goes into the production of Hip-Hop, and compare that to producing country music, and again, we find a far more intricate art in Hip-Hop.
