    Default Snappers in Victoria, Australia to defy police ban

    Snappers to defy police ban

    POLICE directives about what could and could not be photographed were an abuse of power and should be ignored, Liberty Victoria said today.
    Confidence is thinking you'll be Champions, arrogance is stating it.

    I agree, they should ignore the police, but at their own risk - everyone knows Vic police are trigger happy.

    Hmm.... They talked abt "Human Rights" and our 'draconian and barbaric act' the last time round. The press had a field day on 'dat poor guy' and the story abt two twins, one good & one bad....

    I'll choose to reserve my judgements this time round, fish out the popcorn and wait for the fireworks.

    Just for interests' sake, we are not allowed to take photographs on Jurong island as well.
    I would like to see someone make noise about it, and then if we are allow, i would definitely go there and take some pictures!

    If the same thing happened in S'pore, I'm pretty sure people here will just obey... Which is so sad.

    Let's face it. To the photographers there are only one law maker to fear of.

    He is not the police, not the minister and not even the father-in-law.

    He is The Security Guard

    If I were a serious terrorist bent on taking revenge, I'll use a small camera, or even pinhole. or shoot from vehicle.

    Ever heard of something called Google Earth?

    Why stop people from taking pics of buildings?
    Like the old shophouses at MacKenzie Road. Which terrorist in his right mind would blast a row of old, crumbling, dilapidated, mostly unoccupied shophouses?

    StreetDirectory.com had tons of pics of buildings. What about that?
    And tourism promotion websites? Raffles Hotel, Esplanade, Millenia Towers are all famous local landmarks, tons of pics of them are on tourism websites. And people in the streets are stopped from taking photos of them?

    Try walking around with a nice SLR around your neck on Jurong island, you'll probably be shot.

    An interesting thread.
    Today after taking our dogs on the same walk with minor variations my friend was thrown into the back of a divvy van in the next town over and told he ws being charged with stalking.
    The reason, we have walked past the same house daily for a long time with no incidents until the owners cat which is eating a wild bird inthe bush is chased by our dog.
    For thenext 2 days he/we were harrased by th lady and even attempted to be ran over by one of her friends.
    We used to eet a lot of dog walkers along the track but thishas petered out to none from that side of town in the last year or more, since these people built their home.
    "It was you who stopped our house building" said the lady when asked if she could help and call bi-laws to help retreive the dog who is chipped.
    I always carry a camera on my walk and apparently the lady has been companining fo rmonths that my friend has been stalking her. Appparently I was never present.
    I was also told that I had to get rid of the photographs I had taken of her abode, despit it being one single snap, taken from public porperty and shows oly a portionof her dwelling. I was actually snapping the wildflowers on the nature reserve.
    The police aid it was not legal to do this and he/we would be arrested if we went past her home again, although it is a public road.
    I am upset and angry that people who build on the edge of urbania think they own the entire area road and all and that I have no right to take pictures of the area.
    I learned a little abutthepolice in Vic today too, they have revered back to theold ways quickly since Miss Nixon left and had no need of their actions.
    We personally thnk it is a drug lab andhave nor eason not to think so now that such action has been taken to try and stop us using the public street or face a stalking charge and restraiing order and will also involve confiscation of the camera and computer for the image.
    What is going on???
