I've got a lot of things to worry about in general, without having to worry about corrupt foreign cops.
I was reading CNN online and came across this harrowing tidbit:
British detectives said on Monday they had launched an inquiry into claims police staff had been selling close-up pictures of a huge group of naked people who took part in a photo shoot for a U.S. artist.
The artist is Spencer Tunick. He goes around the world and takes photos of naked crowds. When I was in Belgium a while back, I read a post on Craigslist that there was a naked photo shoot scheduled that day. I was drunk at the time. I decided to take part in it. If you look really really really really closely, in the wee background, you can see me.
At the time I thought nothing of it. But today, I now learn that my privacy might be violated thanks to public nudity. This is very unjust. When people take their clothes off en masse and lay down on an historic promenade in the middle of a city for a picture, we assume we'll have a modicum of privacy. What kind of person whips out a camera when he/she stumbles across hundreds of naked people? I'll tell you what kind: a government official.
I can only pray that Belgian officials didn't get wind of this, or that CCTV cameras weren't yet in place to capture this art event. I have a mole that I don't want anyone to see, unless that someone is laying down next to me naked. Hopefully the man masturbating next to me took focus away from me.
Damn! It's going to be really hard to sleep at night.
Still, it's a good thing the government is able to videotape all its citizens. You never know what naked group photo a terrorist will infiltrate.
