This is a major process to abide by privacy laws
If the police abides privacy laws, then why are all the videos uploaded to a private company's server? Aren't there laws against that?
You are violating Betteridge's law of headlines. Please stop doing that.
You're not expecting privacy on a public street.
Yes I am. I am expecting that there are no vast armies of spies on every corner or every street. I am expecting that I can go up in the masses, and that I am alone in empty streets.
Yes, I expect that sometimes people can see me. That is something hugely different from monitoring me. I expect that my neighbour can see me leave in the morning. I expect that my boss can see me coming in the morning. It is a huge violation of privacy if my neighbour checks with my boss, or if my boss checks with my neighbour. "Everyone present can see" is totally different from "surveillance 24/7".
