Well if "Nothing to hide" is their justification for this crap...I think we should get a few million people together and show up at the Whitehouse completely naked.
We put all the 300+ pounders we can find in the front rows ... And carry signs that say we'll get dressed when you stop being so F'ing nosey!!
"Nothing to hide? What'd you say? Nothing to hide? I'll... Stop resisting. I said STOP RESISTING!" <thud> <whack> <k-pow> <oomph> "STOP RESISTING!" <bang> <bzzzt> "How's it now resisting the tase? Huh?" <bzzt> <aarrrgghhh!> "Hey, this one stopped resisting." "Is he breathing?" "Like I said, he stopped resisting." "Ok. I'll call the morgue to pick 'em up."

It's just bizarre how it's ok for the state to have this massive surveillance of people's public and private lives, and yet if regular people take a picture or video in public, somehow they're criminals?
I can perfectly well imagine the naked march there, and some cops opening fire as the first fatty in front reaches to scratch his butt some. "I thought he was going for his gun." Jokes about it being in front and not behind aside, I really don't think that's out of the question anymore, and I don't think I'd be very surprised to see a story like that.
Oh... I just had a horrific thought... I don't think I want to see that march you've proposed on YouTube...
Nice to see somebody else going along with my earlier comment that this isn't a tech issue were dealing with - it's a people problem.
As far as I can see, the "people problem" at its root is a "busy body won't mind his own bloody business" problem. At the core, the utterance, "People should not <do something>," is the core problem. A better utterance is, "I should <do something>." e.g. "leave other people alone".
