Asia is not Australia. SG is not Australia. Here, you cannot photo a flood that is near to Bukit Timah Avenue 2 to 6 where powerful people stay.
WanBao photographer arrested for pictures of flood! - Page 2 - www.hardwarezone.com.sg
and... knowing Lianhe newspapers for their shoddy news reporting and lack of journalistic integrity and bullying tactics to get the news (my friend's death and an friend's cousin's death were given extremely negative publicity just to drive up readership, even though the article and cause of death were certainly unrelated and they weren't the sort to do such things...), really now? just because someone stands up to the police, that his story must hold truth?
all i know is that the debate went on and on and on with only the photographer's side of the story. by the way, he wasn't arrested, even in the recount. just detained.
we are now ruled the the internet.
long live the internet.
So in simpler words, "Don't trust anyone, source or parties. All of them are bias toward something and all of them might have hidden agenda behind their words. Just read whatever was on the net, do your own analysis, and if that particular news would have impact on you (for whatever reasons, be it on your investment, rights, etc) then do more research and then decide your next action base on your research... and if you still miss that step or move... then you can only remember this word from a wise old man - you go in with your eyes open."
And of course with common sense when instructed by mata.Kevin Lynch, a lawyer from Johnson, Winter & Slattery, which provides legal advice to Fairfax Media, said it was legal to film anyone as long as you are on public property or have the permission of a property owner to film.
Happy shooting all.
There are times when it is not appropriate to take photographs.
Use your judgement.
For example when the mother was screaming and crying over her two sons' dead bodies in Tampines.
