Video: BBC Anchor Claims Arguing Against Surveillance State “Was A Fair Talking Point In The 1990s, But People Are Over That Now”

“We’ve moved on since then. Cameras are everywhere.”

An arrogant BBC News anchor lectured a privacy advocate Tuesday who argued that a rise in violent crime, particularly against women, cannot be countered by eroding freedom and further empowering the surveillance state.

Following the announcement that police in the UK are setting up a scheme to use CCTV cameras to watch women at night to make them ‘feel safer’, Madeline Stone of the privacy advocate group Big Brother Watch argued that there are already masses of surveillance cameras everywhere and they do not make people any safer or prevent crime.

Stone emphasised that adding more cameras strips away privacy and is in no way a solution to the problem, including harassment of and violence against women.

“But the woman is asking for the camera to be on them, so this is not a breach of civil liberties,” the anchor responded, referring to the scheme which uses an opt-in app.

Stone replied that having an anonymous stranger tracking a woman’s movements via a camera isn’t going to help, but was continuously interrupted by the anchor who repeatedly stated “if it’s something that’s going to make you feel safer,” it will be welcomed.

“Isn’t this really that Big Brother Watch is against all cameras watching us?” the anchor lectured.

He then declared “I mean this was a fair talking point in the 1990s, but we’ve moved on since then, people are over that now.”

“Cameras are everywhere,” he stated, arguing that it’s pointless to stand against the surveillance state.

“Cameras are on women anyway, whether they ask them to be or not,” the anchor further arrogantly declared.

Yes, that’s the WHOLE FUCKING POINT of the problem mate.

    Video: New York Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul Really Did Say It’s A “Conspiracy” That Violent Crime Is Rising

    She doesn’t understand why Americans care about it

    Any inconvenient fact for Democrats is now dismissed as a “conspiracy”. This was once again in evidence last week as New York Governor Kathy Hochul used the pejorative against people pointing out that there has been a rise in violent crime.

    Calling Republicans ‘election deniers and data deniers,’ Hochul claimed that shootings and murders are “down fifteen percent in our state in New York City.”

    Hochul charged that Republicans are “master manipulators” attempting to convince the nation that they are less safe in Democratic controlled States.

    As The New York Post highlights, while murders are down by 14% in New York City over the summer compared with last year, all other major crimes surged — including a 33% rise in robberies, police statistics show.

    In an earlier debate with her Republican opponent Lee Zeldin, Hochul stated that she doesn’t understand why being touch on crime is important to him, even though Americans list it as a priority:

    Even MSNBC anchors are not buying it from Hochul:

    Nationwide, murder rates are up, according to both FBI and CDC data.

    Lets ignore that though:

    These Are America’s Violent Crime Hotspots

    The District of Columbia had the highest rates of violent crime in the United States in 2020, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s data.

    “Residents are scared,” said Michael D. Shankle, chair of the Advisory Neighborhood Commission in the Chinatown area, after three people were shot one night last month, one fatally, in two separate incidents. 

    He added, “They are angry. … We feel like we don’t have enough support.”

    Nearly 1,000 cases of violent crime per 100,000 people were recorded in the state.

    Alaska also has a high rate of violent crime, at 838 cases per 100,000 population.

    As Statista’s Anna Fleck shows in the map below, the south-eastern states of New Mexico, Arkansas, Tennessee and Louisiana also show higher figures than much of the rest of the country.

    At the other end of the spectrum placed Maine (109 per 100,000), New Hampshire (146), and Vermont (173).

    Finally, we note that even with some of the country’s toughest gun laws, the District is awash in firearms.

    Police so far this year have seized 2,249 guns, 815 more than this time last year…

    …they seem to be fighting a losing battle as the bad guys just won’t follow their rules!
