Gary Crutchley, 39, was photographing his two youngest sons Cory, 7, and Miles, 5, on an inflatable slide when a woman running the slide asked that he stop. When he protested, other families waiting on the slide line also demanded he put the camera away.
I don't see what would be so interesting about kids on a playground anyways for a potential child abuser.
DPP -v- Jones (1999): The Court recognised that the public may enjoy a public highway for any reasonable purpose, provided it does not amount to public or private nuisance or obstruct the highway "by unreasonably impeding the primary right of the public to pass and re-pass: within these qualifications there is a public right of peaceful assembly on the highway."

Wow. I'm thinking back to my childhood when not ONE child was exempt from having those baby pictures of his/herself trotted out....the one where you're stark naked and laying on a blanket pulling up on your 2 little arms?
PLEASE! I may be calling the wrath of God down upon myself with this next statement but...as a parent, there really is nothing cuter to me than watching my toddler try and run away from me stark naked. All pudgy limbs and dimples- something about seeing the full human body in those tiny proportions makes me giggle with pride, joy and love. What kind of pervert AM I?
I don't stand a chance in the park!

As far as I know, there is no law against taking pictures in the park.
I would have told them that if they were concerned, they should call the authorities. Then I would have continued snapping photos of my kids playing.
If they don't like it, they should feel free to leave. No one likes a crowded playground anyway.
WOODLAND – Gilbert Chan, a business reporter at The Bee, pleaded not guilty Friday to a felony charge of possession of child pornography.
Chan, 52, of Davis was arrested after trying to conceal a camera he was using to videotape a youth cheerleading competition at UC Davis on Feb. 3, police said.
The first thing that comes to mind here is that if the videotape itself is of a sexual nature, then one can conclude that the performance itself was as well, at which rate anyone involved in organizing it is guilty of exploiting minors.
