Yet another thing i think is fucking stupid.. GDPR btw.
So, a guy in Denmark owns a grocery store and has an issue with people stealing from him a lot the last couple of years. He catches them on tape and shares it on social media to try and prevent it.
Im not sure why it didn't work to go to the cops, but it didn't.

What the owner ended up doing, was hang a note on the front of the store so people could see it before they entered, see attached image.

However, now he has been notified what hes doing is illegal, because the "user" doesn't consent clearly enough.

I dont understand GDPR, but if you do, you're probably gonna find mistakes in what i wrote.

Its his fucking store, if people steal from him he should be allowed to post it on pornhub if that was his desire.
It's illegal to kill someone, but if you're threatened on your life, you may kill in selfdefense.
To me, those are the same, just one is on a much more serious level of course.
Fuck me.

    @fuck2code hes desperate, he did contact politicians and police. What else should he do?

    @JiggleTits i can't see a reason why not to publicly shame someone committing a shameful act publicly.

    Its so absurd, I dont know what's worst. People getting fired over tweets and having their careers and dignity destroyed over a one time mistake/misconception or shaming criminals publicly being considered as distasteful or illegal?

    @JiggleTits what exactly confuses you?

    @bioDan the entire first section xD

    I cant tell if you think what hes doing is okay, or if you think hes a dickhead for breaking the law

    I actually disagree. Imagine someone posting image of you and saying you are a thief and you can't do anything about it. Also if he has tape of crime and police doesn't help him, GDPR isn't really the problem here.

    @sSam didn't think of that, and kinda do agree with you now that you bring it up.

    The image is from the article, the following is the translation:
    It is in violation of the EU Personal Data Regulation to share photos of people without their explicit consent. And here's a sign on the facade not enough, considering Professor, PhD. and dr. jur. Sten Schaumburg-Müller opposite TV 2 Lorry:

    I dont know why the police wasn't of any help, the article didn't state it clear enough for me to understand it.

    Even though I think it's sad I really can't condone this storekeepers actions. The posting of these photos can have a severe impact on the lives of those in the pictures or look like them.

    A friend of mine was hospitalised because he looked like someone who fondled a girl.

    @JiggleTits who am I to judge in this particular case?

    I was talking generally about the idea, which i am for. The idea is that people who do criminal/shameful acts in public areas SHOULD BE shamed to the extent that they will learn from their mistakes and not do them again.

    The tricky thing is the shame, because you need to communicate it properly and precisely in order to be effective.

    if you shame people too much (like when they actually get fired over a tweet, etc..) they become resentful and dangerous to society.

    @bioDan Those who feel shame are the ones you don't need to shame in the first place. And everyone should have the right to a fair trial.

    @electrineer generally i agree.. But there are cases where people who want to get shamed do stuff in order to get shamed.

    What I'm trying to says is that people should be shamed if their actions are shameful regardless of their intentions
