Man Jailed For Surveilance
A landlord in Oneida, N.Y., has taken things a bit too far this time. Believe me, I have had landlords almost like this guy. Anyway, the landlord was in court Thursday for having hidden cameras in his tenants' apartments so he could watch as they had sex. His sentence was 2-6 years in state prison for four felony counts of unlawful surveillance. I think he got off pretty lightly. He said he was sorry. Uh huh. Oh, and there was one more little thing about the guy. He was a retired Fire Chief. Nice.
ONEIDA, N.Y. - A central New York man was sentenced Thursday for installing hidden cameras in his tenants' apartments so he could spy on them while they had sex.
Patrick Kaiser, 49, of Oneida, was sentenced to two to six years in state prison. He was convicted in December of four felony counts of unlawful surveillance.
He was sentenced in Madison County Court, Kaiser told the judge he was sorry for installing cameras in an apartment so he could spy on his tenants while they had sex.
Here's the thing. If we do any surveilance, we are as likely to get into hot water as not. Yes, there are circumstances where we are able to lawfully do surveilance but we run the risk of being sued or being in trouble with the law one way or another. However, the government is allowed by law to do this and it is perfectly legal. Why? Because they are doing so in the name of national security!
Is America going to wake up? We must!!! If we do not, SHAME ON AMERICA!!
