If you disagree, please let us know why the right of someone carrying a camera to follow kids around and repeatedly photograph them - despite being explicitly asked to stop by the parents - and then to publish the photos in a national newspaper, with their names included - is so essential to the fabric of society that it trumps the right of a family just to go for a walk without being harassed.

Because the rights of the photographer as a citizen should be upheld. It is the parents responsibility and if they don't want children photograph, don't put them in pubic places.

So, because a few - literally - people want to take photographs, no child can go out in public?  That is, frankly ridiculous.

And, to repeat, it is the publication of photographs that is at issue, not merely taking photographs.
