The only real change here is that you can unplug it if you feel you can't tolerate the spying.

Unfortunately you have erred on the side of the user and interpreted the "Won't Require Kinect To Function" to be "I can disconnect it" instead of "We'll say it's mostly disabled in software except for the IR scanning part". I present to you this gem from TFA:

First degree murder is premeditated. The fact that Zimmerman called the cops is pretty strong evidence that he didn't set out intending to kill Martin.

Or, to play devil's advocate, knowing he was going to kill Martin, he called the cops to help pre-establish his innocence in the upcoming murder
