Waikato Times letter of the week #49

From the 29 May edition. Spelling, grammar and punctuation (or lack of it) are all exactly as published:
More surveillance
Who watches the watchers, the abuses of their authority are well documented. Surveillance will be increased with the desire to increase the CCTV within Auckland, the plan extend it throughout the nation with entry provided to various agencies. 
To protect us, the catch cry from whom does the actions of a few miscreants mean all are accessed, digitised, stored and monitored.
Is that information gathered, if shared without authorisation, whom actions that crime? 
Can a citizen request to be advised, each time it is shared, provided with all information gathered. Is it correct, is it used in context? 
A society that will trade a little liberty for a little order will lose both and deserve neither.
Generations fought and died for the freedoms, now blithely served up to the technology gods.

Could it be considered less a letter and more of a blank verse poem???
