Kingmi,

True, I'm wary of that term "Obstructing an investigation".  The police in New Orleans seemed as concerned about backing that horse up to block the cameras while beating the guy on the sidewalk (and the producer who tried to film them) as they were with rebuilding the city. 

Sadly, being a parent these days is more complex than ever.

Blanche, I agree with you. The USSR would never had fallen without fax ma
chines and satellites!  I think we just have to be more cautious of where our children are and how they are dressed.  Or maybe just talk to them and make sure they understand the hidden dangers.

Kingmi,
Another reason not to make the anti-cellphone ban too broad: many cops are caught on camera by private citizens committing acts of police brutality.  It's the one way that private citizens have of keeping tabs on the police to see that beatings, etc., eg, in the Rodney Kiing case are not allowed to go unchecked.

Kingmi,
This seems to be a tricky legalistic question: how to write a law banning "upskirting", which almost any reasonable, non-perverted person thinks would think is invasive and patently wrong, without making the law so broad that it bans the use of public cellphone cameras.  Privacy seems to be one of those "you know it when you see it, but can't define it" concepts.  Is it a reasonable expectation of privacy not to have a picture taken of areas of the body which are plainly meant to be concealed, like underwear, without going overboard and writing a law so vague that no one will be able to use a camera in a public place at all without the express permission of everyone in the vicinty?
