Cindy Koehler, Schererville | "It's kind of iffy for me. I understand why they do it, but I personally wouldn't want to be spied on. If I knew that it's keeping me safe, then I guess I'd accept it."
Terry Zych, East Chicago | "We want to utilize every advantage that we possibly can. Bugging, wiretapping and drones, the more high-tech the better. We should utilize our technology to its fullest."
Vicki Ciena, Lake Station | "No. Why would it be OK to do it to them but not to us? I feel I'm being watched all the time, but I don't think about it or I'd never leave the house."

Sean O'Rourke, Portage | "No. I think we have enough situations here to focus on. We need more faith in God."
