‘Put CCTV in addicts’ homes to protect children’

A controversial plan for CCTV to be used to protect children in the homes of chaotic drug-abusing parents has been proposed by one of Scotland’s most eminent drugs experts.
Professor Neil McKeganey, head of the centre for Drug Misuse Research at Glasgow University, believes radical measures are required to protect the estimated 160,000 children in Scotland living with an alcoholic or drug-addicted parent.

I’m of course curious about the impact that this would also have on the children who will grow up under permanent surveillance. There are no dark corners left to childhood.
