    this is so creepy. I know they said on the video that it was apparently for his own… ummm… use (?) and he did not distribute these videos anywhere but this gives me such a sense of violation and i’ve never even been in texas.

    This is fairly common. These men, and they are almost always men, got their wires crossed somewhere and find this sort of thing very exciting. They are not dangerous in the sense that they won’t appear at your door in the middle of the night. This is their version of porn.

    Not getting anything but a grey circle with a white exclamation point shown.

    When I worked for the forest service in the midwest, there was a man in a rain slicker crouched under the public women’s toilets. This was a raised multi-toilet platform that the bottom could be opened and cleaned out – kind of like a port-a-potty on steroids. So this man crawls in there with his rain slicker and watches women pee. That’s a whole other level of depravity. I’m so proud of humanity sometimes!

    Cameras disguised as a coat hanger and outlet?! A toilet cam is bad enough but that they look like innocent items is awful!

      There are more innocent (or at least less twisted) reasons for a disguised camera. They’re often advertised for collecting evidence when you suspect a crime is being committed when you are not looking. They can be placed in a prominent location in your elderly parents’ nursing home if you suspect he/she is being mistreated. I have no idea how often such abuse is actually identified in this way, and how much is just fearmongering to get people to buy the things.

    This is disturbing. Cameras disguised as normal, everyday items? Makes me want to stay in the house with curtains drawn.

    Not seeing a link on my phone.

    Filming people in the bathroom (or changing clothes, having sex, or doing anything that’s meant to be private) isn’t just rude, it’s criminal. I’m glad I don’t live in the same city as this guy, and I feel really badly for everyone who does–they must be mentally rehashing whether or not they went to the bathroom in any of the places where cameras were hidden, over the course of this past spring. One thing, though–if there were images on his work computer, why didn’t the boss see them?

    I find it incredibly ironic that he feels free to peep video strangers going to the toilet but doesn’t want his own face photographed. He deserves to have his face plastered across every website and newspaper front page in the country as a public service warning.

    • Samihami October 29, 2014, 12:47 pm

      That is exactly what I thought when they showed him running from the courthouse. Quite a double standard there, huh? He can spy on who knows how many hundreds (or thousands!) of women but when he gets busted for it he doesn’t want to show his face?

      And it looked like a woman driving the car he left in. Wife, maybe? I’ll bet they’ve had some interesting conversations lately.

    There was someone who was peeking under stall doors to watch women on my university once. We were advised not to go into the restroom alone, but, if we had to, keep our pants up around our knees so they wouldn’t be able to see anything. Plus, keep our cell phone out with camera app open to take a pic of anyone who was doing that.

    It’s been 8 years since I graduated from that university and I still follow that advice. World is just too creepy sometimes.

    • Kara October 29, 2014, 8:12 am

      Anyone who tries to peek under the toilet stall door at me is going to get kicked in the face.

      I really wish that public toilet stalls in the US were more like those in Europe! There the doors and walls go all of the way down to the floor and there aren’t the huge gaps like you get in the US.

      • Liz October 29, 2014, 3:16 pm

        There are some places where the walls and door does go all the way down around me (Olive Garden is one such place) but I do wish it was more. Also, I know that I would be too shocked to kick but not enough to snap a photo. Not sure why my mind works like that, but it does. 🙂

        • Enna November 8, 2014, 5:42 am

          There are toliets in Europe/UK where the doors don’t go all they way to the ceiling or ground.

          This man is just a creep.

  • kingsrings October 28, 2014, 2:12 pm

    It’s not just in public places. Sometimes perverts will install hidden cameras in their homes to film their friends in the bathroom or undressing. Landlords have installed hidden cameras in their tenant’s apartments. It’s so scary because you have no way of knowing being that such devices are so sophisticated that they’re very hard to detect. : (

    Too creepy for my liking. That bloke had a look of Rolf Harris!!

  • Mojo October 29, 2014, 5:11 am

    That unfortunate, sick man. His life is about to become unbearable.
    When I was younger my house mate drilled a tiny hole in the moulding on our bathroom door, so he could watch me bathe. I felt nothing but pity for him.

    • Samihami October 29, 2014, 12:47 pm

      My sympathy is with his victims.

      Growing up, my brother’s and my rooms were separated by a door with keyhole you could see through (older Victorian house). Anyway, my brother would sometimes try to spy on me through the keyhole while I was changing clothes, so I plugged up the hole with Silly Putty. My parents weren’t thrilled, but since they couldn’t or wouldn’t do anything about my brother not respecting my privacy, I dealt with the problem myself.

  • Jewel October 29, 2014, 5:25 pm

    I hope that the driver picking him up (looked like a woman) does some hard thinking about why she has him in her life. What a creep.

  • NostalgicGal October 30, 2014, 3:57 pm

    Remember the recent uproar when they were selling a Barbie with a digital camera inside? The lens was about where her collarbone was, and she had ports to plug into to download the pictures. People were upset that one could be used to possibly spy on small children (and take inappropriate images and video) as it wasn’t too hard to hack the unit to add Bluetooth to it.

    It isn’t too hard to retro many common items with ‘spy camera’ technology anymore.

    Oh, rats! So far nobody said that we have not heard the “photographer’s” side of the story, 😉 and everyone’s ganging up on him…
