When I was younger I used to play a game called Paranoia. Unfortunately paranoid behaviour has become an endemic in Australia. For instance, the mere act of taking a photo of children in a school is now deemed an evil act. However, when in China we were welcomed with open arms. In Korea, the children were given quite an amount of room to run around. Again, no need to be afraid they will be kidnapped or any other potential grievance. No need to make school into little concentration camps with high fences. Give me the Chinese and Korean approach rather than the Australian approach any day.

A man pointed out in another forum with this story that clearly this is to stop paedophiles. I think that whoever thinks that preventing photos of children at schools will stop paedophiles is nuts. That has to go in with silly statements like putting your head under a blanket will stop the bogey man.
