When Things are Broken it’s Bad

I was sitting upstairs on a bus last week and the CCTV screen was broken.

A blue screen with ‘no signal’ on it. As well as a couple of tags and a sticker with another tag on it.

It made me feel really unsafe. More unsafe than if the screens weren’t there at all.

I guess it’s a bit like when one is in a house full of the evil dead and one goes to pick up the phone and it’s been cut off.

Or perhaps it’s particularly unsettling that something that’s supposed to protect us from vandalism and petty crime has so blatantly been vandalised.
