    A camera is not a weapon that can ruin a man's life, its a man's actions that can ruin his own life.

    "you dont know what this girl is capable of though. she could be a cpu wiz and photoshop some girl into the picture with hedo and get him in some trouble on the home front. its a battle field out there with all the camera phones. your risking it all when you go out in public nowadays."

    I think we have found Hedo's bodyguard... or his PR person in Raffy.

    Raffy, fess up.

    You can take a picture of anyone you want in public.

    No permissions required.


    You are not allowed to grab someone elses property, your mancrush on Hedo and paranoia notwithstanding.
    i'm no lawyer but i'm pretty sure there's some privacy laws that would require you to ask permission if you want to take a photo of someone.

    I don't think the privacy laws pertain to the photo being taken itself, but more from publishing it somewhere. I think that's what you might have heard or what your referring too.

    As far as i know, if your in a public setting (eg a park) then you don't need someone's permission to take their photo. But if your in a private establishment (eg a club) then you do need their permission to take their photo.

    So, looking at this from both sides (Turk's and the girl that took the picture) both could have handled things better, but really, Turk and his security were definitely in the wrong.

    Ya, Hedo has the right to go out and just relax at a club and may have had "a bad day at the office" first, but that doesn't give him or his security the right to grap someone's phone (or camera) and just delete pictures off it. Total dick move IMO.

    The girl that took the pictures may not have known who the guy was that was in the background of the pictures she took (other than Chris Bosh, many non-basketball fans would have a very hard time recognizing another Raptor or even know the name of another Raptor), but if she was really taking pictures of "the really tall guy" she should have asked him first.

    As for privacy laws, anyone can take a picture of anyone or anything while in a public place. A club is considered a private establishment and unless there is a sign posted about not allowing photos, anyone can snap a pic of anyone they want. The club, their security or the person being photographed doesn't have the right to delete the pictures unless they have a rule posted. Obviously if someone didn't want to have their photo taken, the proper thing to do is to ask the photographer to delete the picture, not just grab someone else's property and start deleting pictures.

    The big problem that I find is that people with their own security, security at a club or other private venue and even some police officers take their level of authority too seriously. I worked at many venues as security and even did a private event for Bosh and found that way too many people doing that job feel that they can do anything to anyone for any reason they come up with. The only time you can put a hand on someone is if you or someone else is being threatened, the person is a danger to themselves or others or to protect you or someone else. That also means that you can't just grab someone's phone or camera without their permission. It was clearly Hedo telling his security to delete the pictures from the phone, and the guy just grabbing the phone and deleting them without even asking for them to be removed. Of course the story differs between each person telling it.

    Hedo is an athlete that makes millions of dollars a year. Does he actually expect to be able to go out to a very public location and not have his picture taken? I'm sorry chief but when you are in the public eye, and getting paid to entertain the public (yes, an athlete is still an entertainer) you give up the right to having a "normal" life. If you want to have good PR, you smile for the camera, sign the autographs and shake everyone's hand that wants to say hi to you. Simple as that. Without the fans, you would not be able to live the life you do as a professional athlete because there would be no league or million dollar contracts. Have some class and treat your fans (or even people in the public that don't know you) with some respect.

    EarthJuice,

    You do know that a club is not considered a "public" place... if it was on the street that's a different story.
