they are concerned that you photograph the station layout in detail, including the positions of the CCTV and other security surveillance measures.justarius said:Then they will just get you for having an illegal public gathering. :devil:
It's good to know that there are still those who are looking to protect their civil liberties in this climate of fear. Fear of terrorists attack does not justify the authorities to have whatever way they want with civil liberties, and in this case I really fail to see how sensitive a few shots of the train approaching the station can be. If a terrorist wanted to get train timings and such, they can still jolly well station themselves at the station and take notes, no need to take pictures.
Security concerns are all fine and dandy, but we should really question those more illogical ones.
yah I know, but my point is that the potential terrorists can get all the information they need even without taking pictures. MRT stations are public places, and as such, truly determined people who are up to no good can get what they need to know simply by being in the station for long enough. In fact they can just get the floorplan from within the station itself and ink in the relevant details of CCTV cameras etc.zaren said:they are concerned that you photograph the station layout in detail, including the positions of the CCTV and other security surveillance measures.
This isn't ignorance but pure paranoia.Caspere said:I was back in the office on Sunday to photograph a friend's pre-wedding makeup. I brought her ourside the office to shoot with the plain walls. Of course the security guard stopped me, even after I gave him our name cards and showed him our office and the pictures we took. He refused to allow us to shoot outside our office!!
ignorance is really filtering down....
