A student asked me to go back to the question below. I started to look at this topic back in October 2014 (here), but I didn't share a full essay about it.
In many cities the use of video cameras in public places is being increased in order to reduce crime, but some people believe that these measures restrict our individual freedom.
Do the benefits of increased security outweigh the drawbacks?
Here's the introduction that I wrote:
It is true that video surveillance has become commonplace in many cities in recent years. While I understand that critics may see this as an invasion of privacy, I believe that there are more benefits than drawbacks.
- Quickly analyse the introduction above. What does it contain?
- Suggest some benefits and drawbacks for the main body paragraphs.
