U.K. Fears Camera Phones? Use By Pedophiles
from the fear-mongering dept
Joe Schmoe writes in with a story about folks in the UK being worried about camera phones being used by pedophiles and asks the question:
“I suggest this not so much for this particular article, but rather note a trend and to pose a question. What is it lately with the recently new and growing fear that all new tech will go pedo? GPS… Thumbdrives… Phonecams…” It’s true. As terrible as pedophilia is, this is a case where people are blaming the technology, and not the sick criminals who are the problem. Pedophilia is a crime. Use of a camera (or some other technology) shouldn’t be banned just because it can be used for criminal purposes.
