Transcript of Should the internet be policed?

Cyber crimes are becoming a popular issue among our civilization. The government wants to enforce laws around the internet and police it. This means that they will be able to see what everyone is doing. People are torn by this topic because some feel that the added protection is for the better and others feel that it is breaking our rights of privacy.
Most articles state that cyber usage should not be monitored because there are too many handicaps. The government would have to increase spending, internet usage is on a global scale, and the little spending we have for law officials should be spent on the ones protecting the lifes of people, not the people that are on the internet.
Field Research
In my research I found that 58% people belived that the internet should not be policed and 42% said it should. When asked if they think people will agree with internet policing they were split 50/50 on the issue. 54% said it will not slow down cyber crime while 46% said it will. And, when asked if increased taxes were fair 60% said that they wern't and 40% said it was.
After reading about this issue and conducting my own research i have concluded that most people including myself do not believe that the internet should be policed. Many points stated by the articles are true and I can agree with and there opinion matches mine. The people I interviewed were close to split on the controversy but more wanted internet policing to be abolished.
