A camera on every corner

Like any self-respecting journalist-to-be, I am of the opinion that privacy is important. I mean, what kind of grade could you hope to get, saying otherwise? But what if you were mugged? What if you were stabbed or held at gunpoint? You would want some justice. So what if, within minutes, the police could identify the criminal? Or, for example, catch the men who placed the bomb at the Boston marathon last year. Would you be so anti-Orwellian then?
