On April 15, 2013 there was a tragic bombing at the Boston Marathon. Almost instantly pictures and videos of "suspects" started to appear on the web. Was this a good thing? Do you have concerns?
Cameras in businesses, public venues, and stranger's hands

Just 5 minutes from the TN capitol, I've lived in my home for 26 years with curtains that cover the lower portion of my windows, allowing me to see trees & sky through the upper portion.The house sits at an angle that allowed me complete privacy. Someone just bought the property next door & is building a tall, window-covcered duplex 13 feet from my bedroom/bathroom wall. We sacrifice some privacy and anonymity when we choose to live in an urban area. As an introvert, I carefully selected a home that allowed me the benefits of city living with seclusion that often only comes from living on a huge parcel of land. Most of my neighbors are college students; each has a phone that takes photos. If I don't cover my windows, will photos of my private moments end up on facebook or youtube without my knowledge or consent? I no longer feel secure or relaxed in my haven, why should I expect privacy at a huge public event?
