COLUMBIA — A debate about downtown cameras took place Friday between Keep Columbia Safe founder Karen Taylor and Dan Viets, director of the mid-Missouri chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union at Stephens College.
Taylor, whose 25-year-old son was beaten up in a parking garage June 6, 2009, supports Proposition 1, which, if voted on, would result in the installment of multiple cameras downtown.
The mid-Missouri chapter of ACLU unanimously passed a resolution Feb. 13 in opposition to the downtown cameras. Viets spoke against Proposition 1.
