The latest issue of The Irish News has a look at what happens when a CCTV is installed in your local Starbucks, as well as the potential consequences of that installed camera.
The latest issue has a video on its front page which features two different people using their mobile phones in front of a Starbucks, one of which appears to be wearing a black hoodie and the other a white hoodie.
A video on Youtube has a clip from another episode of The Good Wife and an interview with the man behind the camera, who goes by the name “Lucky”.
The interview has also been edited for clarity and clarity’s sake.
Lucky told The Irish Sun: “I was walking along the street, I had the whole day off work, I was really depressed, I felt really stupid and I wanted to get away from it and it just clicked.”
He said he didn’t think he was wearing a hoodie, but the man wearing it did, which prompted him to take a picture of his hoodie with his phone.
He added: “I said to him, ‘Are you sure?”
I said, ‘You’re right, I’m wearing it, I got it out of the box’.” Losing his job was “a big shock”, he said, but he had no idea why.
“The only thing I knew was I was depressed and I thought I was going to die and my family was going down the street and I was not going to get out of there.”
He said the footage was recorded in the parking lot of the Starbucks and he was “shocked” to see it.
Lucky said he is not sure how many people were in the car at the time and said he was not sure if he would have been arrested.
After watching the footage, Lucky said he doesn’t think there should be cameras in the streets of Dublin.
When asked if the camera was a camera that he would ever wear, he said: “No, not at all.”
The Irish News contacted the National Transport Authority for comment, but has not received a response.
On the BBC’s iPlayer, there was a clip of a man filming himself wearing a mask at a petrol station in Belfast in the 1980s.
Last year, the Irish Times ran a story about a man using a fake ID to get in to a bar in a Dublin suburb.
It also highlighted the case of a woman in Limerick who used fake ID and a fake licence plate to get into a pub in the city in 2013.
