Peeping Tom Laws Can't Keep Up With Technology

Peeping Tom Laws Can't Keep Up With Technology


If you're hitting the mall today to score some Black Friday deals, you might want to look out for suspicious men ready to assault you with their flashes. Camera phone-armed perverts have found it easy to snap pictures of women's private parts, and get away with it.

In Tulsa, OK recently, a man caught sticking his camera phone up a fellow shopper's skirt to take a picture of her underwear, walked away with no conviction, since the state's law held that the woman had no right to such privacy in public.

In response, Salon reports, Oklahoma lawmakers passed legislation making it explicitly illegal to take a photo of someone's private parts in public. Believe it or not, almost half of US states have similar loopholes in need of closing. Hopefully lawmakers react quickly, since these Peeping Toms can instantly post these cell phone pictures online.

Have you ever been assaulted with a camera phone . . . that you know of?
