there's a reason why the outside is called public and the inside is called private.
Want privacy? go inside your room and continue with your thing that you wish to be kept private.

The article is basically about some guy who tries to commit suicide in public and is caught by surveillance cameras, which allows police to save him. He is grateful, but later the footage is shown on the news without his consent and he gets upset. He then took this case to the European Courts of Human Rights in order to earn the right to commit private acts in public and not have those acts displayed all over the media.

So do you think we should have any sort of privacy in public areas (other than restrooms of course)? Personally I don't think so, if you want to keep something private then do it in a private place where no one will see you. If you do something where there are a lot of people are around, then expect a lot of people to see it, including the media and the government.
I think of it as a public safety measure, by making his attempted suicide case in a public area as a reminder for the rest of the society to know just exactly what will happen, when people did something stupid in open public. To me, that's the proper example of "sacrificing the rights of individual for the greater good", when the greater good of public safety is threaten by that man's selfish act of seeking help in the wrong way.
