The reason why we have cameras everywhere


I sometimes think people are getting somewhat carried away with the reasons why we are the most watched (CCTV) country in the world. They say 1984 Orwellian society is here. I don't disagree that our rights are being eroded but on the CCTV issue i doubt it's so complex. Before we had cameras in Birmingham city centre it was a regular occurrence to see black youths 'taxing' white kids on a Saturday afternoon. People would walk past as if nothing was happening and expect someone else to be the hero. Buses have been fitted with cameras for the exact same threat (muggings), from the exact same group of people, young black males, in my opinion. Why the cameras weren't working in Erdington is a serious question which deserves a answer. ic1male
