Illegal? I don't think so!

It might be illegal to PUBLISH, especially for profit, any image captured, but even then, what about a shot of a busy street with hundreds of people, etc.? Why couldn't I use that shot for a label or a logo?
Since our "authorities" see no problem in sticking cameras in every nook and cranny of our country to routinely "capture an image... without written (or any) consent" it seems ridiculous that for a private citizen to do so be considered illegal.
But then, our "authorities" legally and routinely MURDER people in gas chambers, electric chairs, injections and neck stretchers, but for some reason, we private citizens are prohibited from doing likewise. Go figure.
If you're on a PUBLIC STREET, you and your 'image' are fair game as far as I'm concerned. So sue me... fat lot of good that will do you... can't get blood from a stone!
