Individual privacy vs. the public’s right to know

(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Essay

 Some people believe that individual privacy should be protected. Other people believe that the public’s right to know should be protected. In my opinion, I believe that both individual privacy and the public’s right to know should be protected. I mean that it totally depends on the situation. Let me explain it to you.
 Individual privacy should be protected when it comes to a crime victim. A victim’s privacy should be protected in order to minimize inconvenience to victims and ensure their safety from intimidation and retaliation. The same thing may be said of the right of their families and witnesses on their behalf.
 On the other hand, the public’s right to know should be protected when it comes to a criminal. I strongly believe that criminal’s information should be made public, no matter how old they are, in order to ensure the safety of the general public. The same applies to corruption.
 As I mentioned above, both individual privacy and the public’s right to know should be protected, which depends on the situation. A victim’s privacy should be protected and people should have the right to know about a criminal.
