And will it really make a difference...
Unlikely, we (UK) are now one of the most surveilled societies on the planet, have we made crime a thing of the past; No, Have we drastically lowered the occurance of crime; if the figures are to be believed then no not really.
And to anyone who thinks it only affects you if you break the law then I'm afraid you are living in a dream world of fluffy animals and politicans who give a shit about you at anytime besides elections and opinion polls, which are easy enough manipulated, marketing my friends. My sister and her friend were lifted late at night and subjected to hours of interrogation because they happened to be seen walking on camera in the general area of an armed robbery, needless to say they had no idea it had even happened.
The problem we have is that we believe criminals can be detered from crime but unfortuately that has been proved through 1000's of years of crime and punishment as a no hope cause.
I don't have a solution of course but a widening wealth gap and a society built on greed just might exasparate the situation, but thats communist speak.... whats that noise, helicopters here....... :|
