How Ring Went From 'Shark Tank' Reject to America's Scariest Surveillance Company

•, by Caroline Haskins

This is the first of a three-part series, where we'll explore how Ring transformed from start-up pitch to the technology powering Amazon's privatized surveillance network throughout the United States.

When Ring came to Baltimore, residents believed they were out of options.

Pastor Troy Randall, who lives in northwest Baltimore, said that his neighborhood has been "held hostage" by drug sales and associated violence. Many people want to move, he said, but don't have enough money, while older residents can't move to a new place. People are trapped.

"The police are not doing anything," he said. "They are not getting out of the cars. They're not walking the beat. They allow the guys to continue to sit around and to sell drugs."

This ain't nothin'. Look at what Jesus said Luke 12:3,4: "What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs. I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more." Go ahead and read the rest, and realize that Ernie is doing this with Freedom's Phoenix, and his other things. He is telling the world everything he does. Why? So that there is no reason to come after him, because everyone knows what should have been made public all along. We want to be videoed by ring, etc. This we we will have proof of our innocence.
