Make it illegal for people to record people in distress or victims of crime

All to often, I am seeing distressing images of members of the public being humiliated by people recording their distress, be it through illness or crime, on devices such as mobile phones and then posting them on the internet. Instead of recording these images, people should be helping others who are in need of it.

  • correspondence on personal issues

E-petitions cannot be used for freedom of information requests.
