    nah.. i think i ask night86mare to use his special first, then u tie and strap him with c4, then ask scotty to beam him up to space, shoot him with proton cannon, then blow him up with c4, then ask shiruikage to use his canon and shoot him and see how noisy the photo can get. u all so funny leh!!

    Lol.. i think for me, i see how it goes, then take control of the situation from there and see how it goes from there. Thanks to all who replied to this thread, so as to let me and all others to know how u guys diffuse the situation on ur own without help from anyone.

    Let's form the CS SS. Any distress phone call from any bros here, we all show up with tripod to help settle the issue.

    Who drives a lorry? And let's get some tatto on the biceps. Is the Canon logo intimidating enuff?

    Always walk around with a big stick, in my case a weighted manfrotto tripod
    Shoot from a far and when challenged, spew the regular "no privacy laws in sg etc etc etc" and offer to call the police, in fact dial 999 first then ask him if he wants to leave or talk with them

    Today's newspaper carried a newstory about a woman accusing a shop assistant taking a photo of her. The newspaper asked, Would you do what Miss Erasmus(the victim) did to get a picture removed from someone's phone?

    What the criminal lawyer said was,

    "If a photo was taken of a fully dressed woman in a public place, it is hard to argue that her modesty has been compromised, or that the person taking the photograph had any intention to insult her modesty."

    "The photographer in such a situation is not legally bound to show any of his photos to a woman who may have been photographed. Nor is he obliged to delete any of the photos, even if the woman asked him to."

    When you think you have been falsely accused,

    step 1 - if the photographs were taken in a public place, you do not need to show them to your accuser.

    step 2 - you do not need to delete any photographs you have taken

    step 3 - Do not leave the scene, and wait for the police to arrive to explain your case.

    Note: all the text was taken from The new paper on tuesday 7 april 2009 page 10 and page 11.

    Taa-daa, the law is on our side!!

    so what if you're a CS member? being a CS member does not mean one's advice would be better/useful. the best people to give advice would be lawyers.

    also, i'm willing to bet that 75% of CS members are just GWC who have little/zero knowledge of the law, unlike (professional/full-time) photographers who have basic legal knowledge and are better off at giving advice.

    Heheh actually I don't think any of us should be giving any advice to her. By teaching members of the public how to counter us, aren't we shooting ourselves in the foot?

    The advantage of having a membership base is that we look out for each other and help each other to "counter" the outside world heheh
