Cameraperson: Competence Required?

Clip: Season 30 Episode 18 | 2m

Johnson is shooting footage of her mother, who is identified as being in early stages of Alzheimer's. When Johnson asks her mother if it's okay to film, her mother seems lost in another reality and never actually gives an answer. If this was a courtroom, her mother would likely be judged not competent enough to stand trial.
