London is camera crazy...

Everywhere you go in London, you see white video security cameras with “CCTV” on the sides of them. There are thousands and thousands of cameras in the city and surrounding areas. The BBC says the average UK citizen is recorded on camera about 300 times a day!

I decided to research these CCTV cameras and find out the real story and opinions about them. Surprisingly, my initial thought was these cameras had to be positively impacting society, mostly keeping crime down. However, I was surprised to find out the contrary. Check out these two links below for some more interesting information.
