Link to NYPD Tweet about two robbers - who looked dressed for such a thing.
Although "cameras everywhere" helps to collect and dissect evidence later when these things happen, the other less appreciated one is that it forces rational bad actors to dress this way and to literally expose their intent in real-time to everyone around them, accordingly.
But, people need to be attuned to this to take advantage. See people dressed like this? Lock your business doors, move to the other side of the street, maybe even tail safely if you have that kind of discretionary time.
After awhile, even covering themselves up to hide from cameras will be the actual thing that does these people in. In a few years I expect this will likely be the evolved outcome.
