That woman does appear to go off the deep end BUT... There are few to no facts to explain the circumstances on either side of the confrontation. As far as we know, that kid could have been hovering his cam over an open air changing room (side curtains, no ceiling) and her kids could have been in there.

Did this kid have his cam hovering over/following a particular person which could be perceived as predatory behavior? We really have but a one sided glimpse of the situation with few to no facts to pass judgement.

I'm all for the freedoms to photograph in open public places, but with some respect for the people using that space and a dose of common sense. I take pics at public places all of the time, but I also respect unwritten rules of varying environmental/social conditions.

Gear: Anything to shoot with, be it a phone, a disposable camera, or my kids Nerf digi-cam.
