Shreveport City Councilwoman Levette Fuller tells 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright that legislation proposed by Councilman John Nickelson that would require security cameras in all city establishments selling liquor "is overreach."

Fuller, who most recently led the fight to repeal the city's twelve year old "saggy pants" ordinance, tells KEEL listeners that "we have the emotional correlation of alcohol and crime, but the data does not fully support that to the point where government should be overreaching and saying, 'You need to spend this money on this stuff so we can feel better about crime,' when we're not doing anything on our end to help that situation."

Regarding the proposal, Nickelson had previously told KEEL that "I would think that businesses selling alcohol in Shreveport would want security cameras for their own safety.Having this requirement will give police an important tool to fight crime and it will deter crime, so I hope the city council will give it serious consideration."
