We asked our followers on Facebook what they think of the plan to record Ohio gamblers and saving the images for up to five years. Here’s some of the responses:
Ryan Anderson: Watch the casino revenue start to drop once everyone finds out. they always gotta find a way to ruin a good thing.
Don Carter: If it is publicized, and you go there voluntarily, you are voluntarily submitting to such action. This program is public knowledge.
Marcella Ashe: I am reformed from gambling. I however think this is a form of intrusion that lifts the veil of individual privacy… It may cause those that like to gamble refrain from supporting this kind of entertainment. Personally if I was a casino gambler I would quit.
Adonte Dix: I believe specifically for this topic that this invasion is ok. The risk is not too great unless one is really doing criminal things
