Security plays an important role in protecting the public from certain harms in society. Without security, freedom is in harm of being taken away. It is important that people are protected to prevent tragedies that might happen when there aren't surveillance. Overall, security allows us to enjoy our freedom instead of it being taken away from us.

Since I am the con in this debate I will be going against the pro.

I agree with you to a certain extent and with some ideas. With things such as water boarding terrorists I actually agree with you're ideas. But if you're talking about how our government is breaking ethical concerns for the safety of our people I completely disagree. If you look at the past there is previous countries that have done this. Look at Nazi Germany they imposed laws and certain restrictions and had a secret police to help stop anyone from harming their country. Compare that to modern America. People will die, we don't need the government monitoring every phone. Detaining people with probable cause because probable cause can literally be a officer saying that he smells something and then can detain you for a limited period of time. Security in the long run usually leads to freedoms being taken away. Instead of allowing us to enjoy them.
