We see it on basic cable, the very sensational “caught-on-cam” violation against property and safety. It is played in slow-motion over and over and ranked from bad to worst.
On the back of my head I say “This is a very good ad for Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) system”. And indeed, CCTV sales are on the rise up to 40% in the last few years, depending on where you live.
The thing about CCTVs that makes it an incomplete security system is that it only serves as a passive witness to the crime. If one does not have the resources to have actual guards monitoring the system to stop the crime as it happens, you only have a documented evidence of the crime. The evil deed is done. That’s a bad oversight.
