Person of Interest - Person of Interest(TV Series)

This quote was added by shekkhhar
You are being watched. The government has a secret system: a machine that spies on you every hour of every day. I know because I built it. I designed the machine to detect acts of terror, but it sees everything. Violent crimes involving ordinary people, people like you. Crimes the government considered irrelevant. They wouldn't act, so I decided I would. But I needed a partner, someone with the skills to intervene. Hunted by the authorities, we work in secret. You'll never find us.

I hear what you're saying @brandencan and see where you're going with this. However, I stand by my disgust with government intervention in our lives. I'm aware that government surveillance can, occasionally, do good by way of protecting citizens from potential crimes, however, those benefits, few and far between as they are, do not justify the intrusion into the private lives of good, law-abiding citizens

Well, I'd like to present a little counterpoint as a "devil's advocate" for you both:

At what point does a security system for your home become "valuable" enough to be worth the resources? Would stopping/preventing/having a positive outcome from an attempted burglary then cause this security system to be valuable? Would something else entirely cause it to be valuable?

For the sake of the argument let's assume you are a fabulously wealthy person (in the world's terms) and you have hired a few security guards to protect your estate.

Also, although I'm interested in your thoughts, I won't be offended if you feel this question is too boring or inappropriate for this site.

Well that makes sense now @bvw and I completely agree with you. Why didn't you just say so in the first place? Thanks for explaining
