A story of London, cameras and data
The lesson I take from this story is that data collected will always be used for purposes beyond which it is intended. In this case, police took footage from London cameras on the understanding it would only ever be used in case of national emergency. Now they retain it indefinitely and use it to solve normal crimes. But it can be used to track individuals regardless of criminal intent.
