Hear, Hear, Chris; second that motion on avoiding rush to judgement. The police must have something they think is solid in order to haul someone in and press charges, but mistakes happen.

Did he say if it was a coed bathroom? I'm female, but there may be others that need to speak up either way about using the bathroom. A man or woman could have been unaware and tapes are sold to underground types of business. Being attentive and friendly can be a cover for getting their needs met or to make money. Someone besides this man may have placed it in the bathroom and lives nearby for an easy connection. I hope that this will inform others to learn and beaware of this type of "eye in the sky" Margot.

You are absolutely right! I just heard one of his employees was stealing money...that may have been a means to catch them. Either way, Jason was always friendly and personable. I hope he gets to keep his job!

I hear just this morning on Today about hackers hacking into your computer via your Webcam and spying on you and you don't even know it. They leave you an email and if you respond to them, it gives them access to hack into your computer. The lesson here is not to respond an email you don't know and turn off your computer or laptop after you use it.
