What’s your opinion?
The Dayton Daily News asked people near the Dayton Mall in Miami Twp. and Town and Country Shopping Center in Kettering about their reaction to news that the federal government is accessing the cell phone records of Verizon customers daily.
“I don’t think that should happen, I think people should definitely be notified that their records are being handed over to the government…I hope that they (other phone companies) wouldn’t (give phone records of customers without customers’ knowledge)…Makes me glad that I don’t have Verizon”
Shana Ruffin, interviewed at the Dayton Mall
“(Our privacy) is being taken away more and more every day.” Jim Prez, interviewed at Town and Country Shopping Center, Kettering

“It shouldn’t bother you if you have done nothing wrong to worry about.” Paul Jones, interviewed at the Dayton Mall
