So you agree that it's awful but you still justify that the paparazzi are part of her job and therefore have a right to violate her because there's no law?
There are countries where it's legal to kill your daughter, should we all just stand around like "oh there's no law against it so I guess that's okay?" or do you think some anger toward the matter is warranted?
The trouble is: if you have no real possibility to avoid things (speaking in general), you have to cope with them. I say the woman in the next flat drives me crazy because of her cooking with garlic, but as long as there is no law against garlic, I have to find ways to cope with that (close the window).
Paparazzi are photopgraphers, doing their jobs. Not judging in which way. In which way is a question of the newspapers, the editors and THE PUBLIC, buying newspapers with pictures in question. If nobody would buy these newspapers, the question would be solved very quickly. But as long as it is not clearly forbidden to take such pictures, it will happen. This has nothing to do with common sence or the right behaviour, because both things are killed by one word: MONEY.
It's a killer-argument to compare such pictures with the killing of daughters, but we all know that it happens. But then you can discuss abortion, too. And it is difficult to change such "traditions" (horrific for us, but maybe "normal" for the people, living them) from one day to another.
As Ling pointed out, the moment Emma turned 18, she was abused by the paps. She innocently got into a car with no intention of flashing her undergarments to the camera's (she was even with her Dad for goodness sake!). Had the repulsive, vile pap(s) that got ON THE FLOOR with a zoom lens to get a picture up her skirt been a human being with feelings - then we would never have had an upskirt shot anyway. It's not like she intentioanlly exposed herself.
Unfortunatly you did not answer my question, if there is actual a law against such pics. I think not, because otherwise the would not be made.
I think you want that the paps are saying: "Ok, we are bad people. It will not happen again." THIS will not happen. Because the are getting MONEY for it, and MONEY is the best argument to behave crazy.
And Emma: I think, she is a smart and intelligent woman. Did she really thought that it would not happen to her?
