A store in my city placed some pictures of thief womens while they were in action.
Many people complained that this was an intervene in privacy.

What do you think about this??
Do you find this a better way for the owner to defend from thiefs rather than just reporting to the police ??

I have no problem with it. In the US there is no expectation of privacy in a situation like that. The people could sue for defamation, but truth is a defense to defamation.

There is no presumption of privacy in a public place, except as specifically outlined by law (such as bathrooms, changing rooms, etc). The picture is of neither, thus, there's no privacy to be had. Plaster their pictures all over town.

If it was on their shop and/or another shop with consent then that is fine, the women were in the store and the store has the right to look onto its property.

Unfortunately, we live in a society today that is largely devoid of shame and making someone feel bad, even for something they ought to feel bad about, is a prosecutable offense.

I believe the proper English term you're looking for is "invasion" of privacy, not intervention. Being from Albania, I would presume that English isn't your first language, although you have been clear in your posting - I like to help people with the language, just as I'd love to be helped by others when I'm learning a new language, so please don't take offense.

As for the posting of the picture, it's not so much an invasion of privacy, but if the women in the picture have not been arrested and convicted of the crime of shoplifting - theft - it could possibly be a defamation of character in that the poster identifies them as thieves. We had a case here recently where a restaurant owner threw hot sauce on a person he thought was a thief and it turns out it was another person who committed the crime. If these women were arrested and convicted, then I see no problem with a shop owner letting the public know that he has surveillance cameras and they helped him get these women arrested.

It depends on the laws of your country, but in the USA thieves do not have the expectation of privacy in public, and cannot sue for defamation of character because their criminal acts have been photographed and displayed.
