    You can rest assured if the unfortunate happens to them that something is definitely going to happen to them.

    More worthless legislation, didnt want to create a new thread:

    Here is a proposed law that we know Ars Technica readers will just love. It's the Camera Phone Predator Alert Act (H.R. 414), introduced into Congress this month by Representative Peter King, Republican of New York. The bill's text says that Congress has found that "children and adolescents have been exploited by photographs taken in dressing rooms and public places with the use of a camera phone."

    What's King's solution? One year after the passage of the Alert Act, all mobiles with cameras made in the United States must emit a "tone or other sound audible within a reasonable radius of the phone." And the legislation would forbid manufacturers to program an option that would allow consumers to disable the noise.

    Yeah I agree. It might not be the best solution, but it's pretty f'ed up that people do stuff like that.

    From my understanding -- this portion of the stimulus is now out.

    Score one for the American people, the Republicans do have the capacity to be right about certain things.

    The best replies on /. were (paraphrasing) "are they going to require a whirring film sound while taking video, too?"

    Ars usually has some good replies, they are full of people who hate government (so you can kind of see how i fit in) but their hatred goes way, way, way farther than mine.

    True, but the workaround for avoiding a cameraphone that makes noise is pretty easy.

    Namely, a real camera.
