one million terabyte a day??? this cannot be right, at least not streamed to the ground, there is no data transmisssion on earth that is capable of a wireless datatransfer of this magnitude. besides of that, thats not really new, it's just a higher resolution version of existing surveillance

Except in the UK you have 1.8 million cameras on land doing the monitoring. They are all over the place. 115,000 cameras on public transportation alone. LINK

1.8 million cameras is a lot less than the number of guns in the U.S.A. And I'd much prefer my kids to be shot by a camera than a gun.

Those cameras are there to determine who killed you after the crime was already committed. Here in the US, some of believe the police will not get to us fast enough to prevent us from getting hurt so we take it upon ourselves to defend our families. What good is that camera going to do you when you're dead? They might know who killed you but you're still dead.

In the U.S.A. firearm-related deaths totaled 31,672 in 2010. In the United Kingdom, firearm-related l deaths totaled 155 in 2010. Perhaps you need more cameras.

We have guns in America so that's the only murder statistic you discuss? Why not list all murders for both countries compared to the population. It's customary to list number of murders per 100,000 people so a country the size of ours doesn't have skewed results when compared to a puny country like the UK.

Population of u.S.A. @ January 29, 2013 = 315,234,000 Population of United Kingdom @ March 27, 2011 = 63,181,775 So rounding up the figures the population of the U.S.A. is 5 times the population of the U.K. but firearm-related deaths is more than 200 times that of the U.K.

Oh dear lord. And I say that without being a religious person. I'm done with you because I need intelligent conversations with people that can read.

@All: Ever notice the cengland0 gets "done with people" who refuse to shift arguments into his 'terms' rather than argue the point being made. In today's example his fallacious argumentative fall back positions are: Red Herring, Argument By Dismissal, Argument By Pigheadedness
