    Grade A paranoia. They aren't interested in monitoring you if you have done nothing wrong. CCTV can quite often provide vital evidence in convictions.
    No, I'm not paranoid, it's sad some of us still think that. They are monitoring us, we are the ones under surveillance, we don't really know to what extent.

    Surely you must ask yourself at some point, why there is crime? not the we need CCTV surveillance to document criminal behaviour.

    Neither. The benefits are to help secure convictions.
    doesn't the question, why do we have crime ever cross your mind?

    I'm not too concerned. In fact I feel safer with CCTV around because at least I know someone might be watching if I need help.

    Why is there crime? Because there will always be people who commit crime. We need CCTV to provide evidence of a crime being committed so the perpetrators can be brought to justice.

    Why is that relevant to CCTV coverage?

    What I understand here is, you are to busy in your everyday life, to question the basic fundamentals, so you just make do, hence the answer you have given.

    Seriously? Do people think OUR government are in control of every aspect of our lives? You can say whatever you want, what you should worry about is the public backlash, not the concern (invented in your own head) that the government is tutting at what you're saying.

    Unless you're a terrorist, then you should be concerned.

    Questioning and understanding why we have crime is an alternative.

    Been attempted for decades with various degrees of success. I don't believe it's possible to stop all crime totally and so would rather we had CCTV to help secure convictions when the crime does happen.

    I don't know about you, but, I know social conditions have a lot to do with levels of crimes, doesn't take decades to realise that. Once that is understood, the idea that CCTV coverage, is anywhere near good enough an alternative is laughable.
