Peeping Photog Busted

Reporter cited for trespassing on Brad Pitt's property

After yesterday's story about photogs harassing Reese Witherspoon, this one about a trespassing photog hunting Brad Pitt is a little welcome relief.

(BTW, People magazine: it's awfully hard to say he was a rogue photographer when he has specific instructions from you about where to go, what to do, and what he will expect to see...Shame on you, People magazine: you're as guilty as the photog.)

I still think that a trespassing citation is a light penalty - again, whether you're a celebrity or not. Think about this way: if some guy decided to peek into your bathroom window and take pictures of you naked, he would only get a trespassing citation. Think about that for a minute...Is that the kind of punishment a Peeping Tom deserves? I think not...

The penalty needs to be strong enough that people start respecting personal property rights. Every person has a right to have their own personal space where they can be left alone, and the price for violating that space should be steep. Even if you're as famous as Brad Pitt.

Book 'em, Dano...
