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.

This is absurd, you need to read what you said and then watch the video of her as she she calls him a pervert. Do you understand you have done exactly the same. What if? What if? How on earth do you even justify thinking like this.

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.

One sided, did you watch his video of the flight. It was recording you know, it also how they navigate the copters. You really need to do some work before having an opinion. Go watch his flight video

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.

and deny them here. All the information was available to you and yet you ignored it. You talk about unwritten rules but break the first one.

When I read the article I only saw the video to the attack, I didn't see a link to his flight video.

I know this is the internet but do you really think thats an excuse for mis-information. You have all this access and could have found his flight video in seconds like I did then you would never have made up the fiction about change rooms without a roof.

He looks like a pretty decent 17yo to me but in this world everyone is a pervert.

I totally missed the flight recording, I don't know if the link was dead at the time, but it was most likely oversight.  We saw two videos, both posted by the victim. All evidence points to the attackers guilt, and his innocence, but is that all of the video footage?  I am a cynic when it comes to posts on forums and even verified news sources.  I've seen too much BS online to feel otherwise.

Yes, I believe everything I see, read, and hear on the internet.

btw, Wecome to dpreview letx, it's a pretty good forum overall.
