CCTV Cameras Should Be Operating In All Public Locations
Debate Rounds (3)
The end result would be a world where everything is recorded on camera except for events that take place within private property and homes. The benefits of this would outweigh any consequences for one pivotal reason:
Any crime that takes place in public will likely be solved. The suspect has nowhere to run; the police can trace the suspect's movements right back to his home address, where they can visit and subsequently arrest him.
Kidnappers, murderers, rapists -- everyone will be caught and brought to justice.
You will be CON; you will argue that CCTV cameras should not be in every public location.
Not sure what you mean by keeping the population down.
"If all we know is good, how will we be prepared for the bad?" -- Cameras will not stop crime altogether, but it will help to bring people to justice and reduce crime. Some people do not care about consequences, so I know that there will still be crime in the world. When the bad things happen, we will deal with it by watching the recorded evidence and arresting the suspects. Simple really.
Freedom: "The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants" 
Being watched does not harm your freedom. You can still act how you want to act.
The only place where cameras will not be is in private property, but the beauty of having cameras everywhere else is that you can see who is going in and out of a house. If someone was murdered inside a house, you can watch who leaves the house and then follow their movements to find out where they go. Most crimes will be solved by observing their travels.
If the power goes out, we are back where we started: no CCTV. This isn't a problem because it is no different from the situation we have right now.

"The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants."
Then I can act as I want, and speak and think that it is wrong.
Do you not find it weird that people would always be able to watch you?
