WATCH - Hidden Camera in Public Restroom!!
This is at Strawberry lake in NORWAY, MICHIGAN. This is a City owned Public bathroom which serves the public in this park. It also double for a changing room for the local school track meets and also Ice Skating and Hockey Players. These camera are located so they can see almost the whole bathroom. There is cords running down the wall going...?? Call the city and report it? I did and was told they were owned by the city. I am told that they have every right to place these cameras in the public restroom and IF they wanted could do it in all of the City owned buildings. I THOUGHT this was against the law.. SEE FOR YOURSELF..
The following are states that have enacted laws on their books about hidden cameras. These laws refer to to placing surveillance devices or recording people where one has the reasonable expectation of not being filmed or recorded or are in an area reasonably considered a private place: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, South Dakota and Utah.
In most of these states it’s a misdemeanor but in Maine it’s a felony and in Michigan, it is a felony punishable by a $2,000 fine plus two years in prison.
What city offical can be held accountable?
