There was a report last week about a Mr. Gannon who brought a recorded footage of a rude police officer who visited his house to the station to complain about the cop's behavior. Instead of being given customer service, he was being held in custody because his surveillance recordings were a breach in privacy and was not acceptable. He was freed, but his tapes were confiscated.
Anyone have any comments on this?
Don't you think that setting up surveillance cameras are just an act of our own home security, to be much more reassured of our safety?... I think the problem with Mr. Gannon's case was that instead of using the surveillance cameras for protection, he used it to disrupt the privacy of an officer who called and complained about it. In this manner, it is indeed a privacy issue.
