Martyn LeNoble, 44, confronted the photographer outside a popular indoor playground called The COOP

"Where are the kids?"

"Oh, they're in the coop."

Some Paparazzo are pond scum while others do respect boundaries.

I am guessing this Paparazzi was of the scum variety.

Hedeserved to get his ass kicked.

Pretty sure they're all pond scum.  If your career is taking pictures of people who are just trying to get through their day, you are a failure.  If they respected boundaries, they wouldn't be taking their picture at anything but a promotion.

I am speaking from experience.

I was a Corporate Security Manager for the entertainment industry for 15 years.

Some of them only attend public functions and awards shows to get photos while other are predatory "hide in the bushes" assholes.

Trust me, there are 2 different types.

What Farkers like to read: "Christina Applegate's husband beats the crap out of the paparazzi..."

The reality: "One of the officers who responded to the fight told the Daily News that the photographer claimed LeNoble slapped him in the face."

Mommy, what does daddy do for work?

Princess, daddy gets money to play with porno for pyros.

Taking unsolicited pictures of other people's toddlers? Sounds like a candidate for the sex offender registry. Just call the cops; "Yeah, there's some pervy looking guy with a camera going around taking pictures of everyone's kids. Looks like it might be the guy that was shown on the news a few nights ago." Lets see him talk his way out of that.

I never feel any sympathy for targets of the paparazzi.

Yeah, they get don't have a lot of privacy in public.

But you know what? They sold it to the public at large for ridiculous amounts of money.

Shut up and smile for the cameras while you never have to work again.
 
2013-10-15 03:16:12 AM
This story deserves the hero tag.

Also, if Christina Applegate's rock star husband had been Phil Anselmo instead of Martyn LeNoble that photographer would be in the hospital right now.

If you're talking about no talent hacks like the Kardashians whose only role in society is to be photographed and gossiped about then sure. They sold their privacy for money a long time ago.  But actors/athletes/musicians who are famous because they're good at what they do are a different story.  Just because they're public figures doesn't mean they have no right to privacy.

And she lives happily ever after on Whore Island.

well, I guess that's better than getting her father to do it.

One of the officers who responded to the fight told the Daily News that the photographer claimed LeNoble slapped him in the face. No witnesses were able to corroborate the claim, the officer said "Mr. LeNoble said the photographer wouldn't back off, and he was worried because he's gotten death threats in the past. He just didn't know who the guy was who was getting so close," Officer J. Ransom told The News.

Doesn't farking matter who they are. You're taking pictures of my kids, so I assume you want that camera shoved up your ass.

I'm quite OK with this.

Become a papparazzo. You gotta do something when you can't work a broom.

Under the new bill, photographers who harass the children of public figures will face up to a year in county jail and a fine up to $10,000.


Good.

Laser pointers destroy digital cameras when pointed at the lenses. Light pointed at their cameras couldn't really be a prosecutable offense in public under the same laws that allow them to shoot pics in public places.

Fortunately, the sex offender registry is still reserved for people who have committed actual crimes.  Public photography is already subjected to too much arbitrary restriction without this sort of hyperbole.

I agree with your statement but their children should be off limits.  Same goes for politicians; Republican or Democrat, they asked for the job, they are open game, but their kids are not.

More likely it will be tossed after the law is challenged.

If you're in public you're out of luck, it really doesn't matter if you were on tv at some point in your life.

I like the way it's done here in Germany.
You can't distribute photos depicting someone else without their consent unless the people depicted are persons of public interest.
And unless the parents whore their kids out themselves, the children of celebrities aren't considered "persons of public interest" just because their parents are famous.
I guess that's one reason why politicians here don't use their families as photo props like it's done in the US.
For example, as a German I would recognize pictures of the children of the last US presidents, but I couldn't even tell you without Google if the German president has kids (much less what they look like) or what chancellor Merkel's husband looks like.

Why should it be limited to the children of public figures? I wouldn't want them taking pictures of my kids either. I don't know why they would, but I'm sure it would be for some reason much now unsavory than just to sell it to a magazine. But apparently the law in California is only for celebrities' children. Because they're better than us and deserve special protection, I guess. So remember, it's ok to take pictures of children at the park, as long as none of then are the offspring of anyone famous.

I could get behind that.

Expecially if it is limited to peopel under 18.

Yeah, but the kids didn't.

Unless you subscribe to the theory celebrities are chattel slaves.

Lot of anger toward someone who's just taking a picture. Maybe you all think he was stealing the kid's soul in his magic box or something.

Yes please: Why should it be limited to the children of public figures?


Same thought I had. The US is pretty clearly becoming feudal, with one set of laws for politicians, cops, and celebrities, and another for the rest of you worthless villains.

Replace the Catholic Church with academia and there you have it: a somewhat kinder gentler feudal system, except the serfs have more mobility.  For now. Once we get a carbon tax underway, we'll take care of that problem too. Now hie thee back to thy cubicle, peasant.

Back on topic: papparazzi are like cops: there are probably some good people in that profession, but the profession itself is inherently corrupted.
 
2013-10-15 08:55:59 AM
I generally fall into the "you're a celebrity and you make boat loads of money so no, don't expect the same level of privacy as the rest of us. Go pick vegetables or wash cars if you don't want to be in the limelight"

but....this sort of stuff is sickening.

And this is awesome.

"Actresses Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner testified before California state lawmakers about photographers turning their tots into tabloid fodder and helped pass a new law that takes effect in January.
Under the new bill, photographers who harass the children of public figures will face up to a year in county jail and a fine up to $10,000."

There's always one of you asshats. There's a difference between being a celebrity because you act or a newscaster and being a celebrity because you're an attention whore. If she's not out there going "Hey everyone, look at me!" when she's not working she deserves some privacy, not to mention she didn't sell her kids privacy to the public at large.
