    Question: is this constitutional?

    I'm thinking about the use of drones to spy on people's backyards and arrest them for growing pot.

    How is that legal and this isn't? Paparazzi are taking pictures of people on their property. The paparazzi can't do it but the government can?

    You can tell just by looking at him that he's got low testosterone.

    He should be more embarrassed about the pussified power ballad factory that his once great band has become than anything that a paparazzi could snap.


    I wonder if he ever thought about asking Stern to photoshop away those man boobs for him...?

    The Senate bill seems too broad but at least they're devoting time and energy to a very important issue.

    It looks like Tyler uses the same personal trainer as Howard.

    I'm thinking once your behind privately owned doors/Gates especially on your own property you should expect some degree of privacy.....

    Cops can also put camera on your property without a warrant. http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/...-cameras-on-private-property-without-warrant/

    Using cops as a comparison is flawed, I think. Unfortunately many courts seem to believe that cops have unconstitutional powers that we don't.

    This law seems exceptionally vague. The fact that it seems to protect only a certain group of people and appears to classify speech doesn't seem like it fits within the intent of the 1st Amendment. Should be interesting.

    The more restrictions on people taking photographs and video of private citizens the better. You have no business invading someone's privacy because they are famous. If someone walks on a red carpet then snap away with your camera. If they are taking their family to the grocery store or the beach then prepare to get sued for all of your worth. Paparazzi are parasites and leeches who invade people's privacy and expose their personal affairs to get website clicks and sell tabloid magazines.

    These same tabloid fucks whine and cry about bullying and cyberbullying and have this hypocritical garbage PSA campaigns about "stopping bullying" yet they have on problem getting three feet away from some kindergartener whose mom is famous and snapping away at her with a camera. It's sick. Mind your own fucking business.

    I see no difference in invading celebrities personal lives and bullying them than I do with kids bullying someone in high school or adults doing it at the workplace. The tabloids take pleasure in outing people for being gay or having an affair. For spilling personal secrets just for sick pleasure. It's pathetic.

    Tracy Morgan nearly loses his career over making a joke about 'fags' but the same tabloids who crucified him take tons of pleasure in outing celebrities for being gay and shame them for being closeted. It's sad. But hey...fuck these people because they are rich, right? Steven Tyler deserves no privacy at all because he's a celebrity, right?

    If they want to walk on a red carpet or go on a talk show they are fair game. But their private lives off camera are no one's business.

    Exactly. So Steven Tyler's privacy is protected but mine isn't? That Hawaiian statute is unconstitutional. It's being done to promote commerce. Commerce, at the expense of the 1st Amendment. There goes another fucking Amendment.

    I neither agree nor disagree with your argument. My problem, right now, before I even figure out how I feel about it, is the disparity between rich people, getting to get laws passed for them while the govt can do the same fucking thing for criminal prosecutions, and the additional problem of impeding the press.

    Both the Hawaiian statute, as well as the drone/helicopter spying are wrong...but...

    Hmmm. I need to noodle on it.

    Behind closed doors or behind a high fence is one thing but when you're on the beach or in open space you are now in public and subject to "viewing" by the public. There is no expectation of privacy when you're in plain sight.

    The Hawaiian senate should pass a bill changing the name of "Big Ten Inch Record" to "4-and-a-Half Inches Hard".
