CCTV cameras are not a threat to our freedom. If anything they are there for our protection.

Closed-circuit Television provides the general public with protection and a sense of security. The very presence of a security camera makes thieves think twice about whether or not to commit a crime. This is a good thing - the purpose of CCTV is to reduce crime, to reduce the fear of crime and to improve public safety.

The general public want to feel safe and CCTV offers this in abundance. In-fact, billions of dollars have been spent globally on CCTV systems. The second point that is quite common, yet very true, is that if you have nothing to hide then why be worried. You're in a public place being watched by the public so why worry CCTV. Some may say that they are an invasion of privacy but to be honest if you're involved in an assault or a business owner who has been stolen from then you'd be pretty thankful that there is solid evidence which would lead to justice being served.

Having a CCTV camera inside workplaces may help with creating discipline among-st the employees and increase efficiency. As well as this, cameras may be placed in high-risk areas. Such areas may include those in which fires can possibly break out. A camera in place there will lessen potential damages because emergency measures can be made immediately. Cameras may also be placed in areas where accidents can happen. All of this is important so that life-saving measures can be employed based on the video evidence

Banks and shops equipped with CCTV cameras give the customers a sense of security and safety. The customers feel secure and this enhances the customers' confidence.

DigitalByDesign is arguing for the wrong side! This would have been an interesting debate to watch if not for his mistake!

I think you're both arguing the same stance. Kuttu should have been more clear in tthe first round.
