Buit who is the "somebody" watching you, and why are they watching? What's the agenda of the organisation paying that watcher?OldRedCap said:As I understand it, some valuable evidence regarding the 7/7 bombers was cctv evidence. I do not worry about busy-body old Mrs Jones at 73 My Street looking through her curtains all the time so why get all het up at someone watching me on tv? It might be that some yobs decide to attack me in broad daylight - cctv might ID them and/or get a medic to me quicker that otherwise. If cctv will film kids vandalising my car, I'd be happy with that too. To me, cctv does not impinge on what I do, where I do it or whom I do it with. But then, I lead an innocent life and have nothing to hide.
CCTV might bring aid in distress to you, but should you - as some people apparently do - rely on it, instead of using other channels for summoning aid?
You, like most of us, lead a blameless life - but stop and consider the possibility that the watchers do not approve of your life, and may seek to subvert it. Or to misrepresent innocent behaviour.
