If someone’s being creepy with a camera, sometimes the most effective thing to do is get out your own camera and film them right back.
Jason Juniel and Broadus Parker spotted a creepy older man covertly filming young girls in San Francisco’s Union Square. They followed him and alerted everyone around them to what he was doing.
They also spotted a hole in the paper bag he was carrying, which allegedly housed a camera to film from a lower angle. “He’s recording!” one of them yelled as they followed him “He’s got a video hole and he’s recording under ladies’ dresses!”
After a few minutes of this, the police showed up, questioned the suspect and arrested him. The man was charged with a misdemeanor under California Penal Code 647J which you violate when you “secretly photograph or record a person’s body under or through his or her clothing for the purpose of sexual arousal or gratification."
