Jobsworth Stealing Children Memories from Parents Part 632

The latest in the line of taking camera security too far has arisen in Sunderland, at the Bridges Centre. Kevin Geraghty-Shewan was approached first by a security guard and then by the police for taking pictures of his own son Ben having a good time. The reason was that they thought that Kevin might have been paedophile.

The fact that young Ben was fully clothed for winter and that the adults accompanying him as he rode the fun ride where his parents shows how little common sense the jobsworths are showing about this. While there is a need to stop people taking and distributing pictures of children for sexual gratification there are occasions that are being lost to the collective memory of today's children.

Agreed, utterly disgusting. At least the man had the sense to stand his ground and defy these petty Hitlers.

If anyone really thought there was an abuse risk from photographs they would call the cops straight away.

Also on Big Brother Watch.

Note one minor victory in Ayrshire...the nose-blowing motorist has had his prosecution dropped.

Word verification tonight must be ancient Egyptian...amethhop
