    No crime reported?
    Photography in a publicly acessible space is free speech and cannot be made illegal.
    There was not even assault and or battery if “… The victims [ sic - no crime ] were not aware of the suspect’s [ sic - no crime ] actions …”
    Yet someone’s face is plastered across the Internet as wanted by the Police?
    For what?
    The security cameras did not capture the event, or they do not want to share that?
    I’d like to see all the security tapes over time to review if security themselves are watching any “victims” who are unaware of being watch — and photographed — but are expecting privacy.
    This is a bogus issue.
    That being said, with porn freely available on simple web searches, trying to catch undies “live” is just, well, I guess, hmm, maybe there’s a thrill in the capture and savoring the trophy, so, hey, that’s “… pursuit of happiness …”, I guess.
    Pants, folks, otherwise … smile!

      “Photography in a publicly acessible space is free speech and cannot be made illegal.”
      There’s an expectation of privacy (thus nullifying your opinion) that occurs in places such as public restrooms/changing rooms/etc. Public simply means that it’s for that usage, it doesn’t nix laws that’d protect said women in this situation.

        The news report here did not say the “victims” were in a place where they expected privacy, such as a private rest room or changing room (even if the room itself is accessible to the public).

        Seems the solution is to have dressing rooms not have openings once a person is inside and closes the door behind them – duh.

      Furthermore:
      “The security cameras did not capture the event, or they do not want to share that?”
      The guy sticking his arm under the divider was probably noticed by an employee. They don’t record the inside of the dressing rooms.

      PS, Drugs are bad.

        “… Store surveillance cameras captured images of the suspect taking pictures up the skirts of at least two women …”

        So, the security cameras DID catch the incident, and may have been outside a dressing room … or not.

        Crappy reporting.

        My beef is that it generalizes that all photography in public is a crime.

        It is not.

    Ok, free speech is a nice thing.
    We are fortunate enough to say what we want, with no problem.
    We believe our rights are important.
    I really don’t care if it is his right to take these stalking pictures.
    I just appreciate the news flash as a reminder that these creeps walk amongst us.
    Be aware of your surroundings.
    And please know, dressing rooms are obviously, not private.
