SILVER SPRING, MARYLAND - AUGUST 28: A doorbell device with a built-in camera made by home security company Ring is seen on August 28, 2019 in Silver Spring, Maryland. These devices allow users to see video footage of who is at their front door when the bell is pressed or when motion activates the camera. According to reports, Ring has made video-sharing partnerships with more than 400 police forces across the United States, granting them access to camera footage with the homeowners’ permission in what the company calls the nation’s 'new neighborhood watch.'

I use to get in so much trouble when I’d ding-dong ditch with my friends.  But those were some of the best and most fun summer evenings when I was a kid.  Unfortunately a lot of kids won’t know the thrill of ringing someone’s doorbell and then bolting without getting caught because chances are they’re being seen the whole time.  Cameras on doorbells can certainly keep you and your family safe, but they have made it a lot tougher for kids to enjoy a favorite childhood past time.  The kids in the video below decided to do it anyway and their contemplation is pretty funny.
