Bollocks. Anyone can photograph anyone in public.
I suspect that is the letter of the law once POPIA comes into force, albeit with SAPS being a placeholder for all law enforcement, including metro police, etc.They must shut the system down so that we rely on SAPS alone... amirite?
You forgot the non commercial part. By contracting with third parties they already made it clear this is commercial. That requires a permit which are only given per period and instance and not permanently. This actually falls outside of the realm of recording and more into surveillance so it isn't even covered by the common law on public recordings.Bollocks. Anyone can photograph anyone in public.
We complain about crime and then when someone does something about it we complain about the solution.
I don't want to live on this planet any more
Suppose that happened what are you going to do about it? There's no mention how the footage can be used by law enforcement or the public. If there was it may not be so bad but without guaranteed public access it's all one sided. That only opens it up to potential abuse. We already know transit heists are an inside job and soon house burglaries may be too.Yeah just wait until someone attacks your wife and daughter then they'll want all the footage and evidence they can get.
