    OH - High-Tech Stalking

    http://wkrc.com/news/local/story.asp...B-982E7860E4D4

    local man charged with high-tech stalking turned himself into police.


    Officials said John Johnson installed a hidden camera on his ex-girlfriend's computer, and watched her every move.


    Johnson is also charged with breaking into another woman's home in January, and trying to rape her.


    Johnson turned himself into police on Tuesday. He faces several charges, including: unauthorized use of property and aggravated burglary. He could face up to 8 years in prison, and be labeled a sexual predator, if convicted.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    mysteriew, I don't have quotes, but I've heard two stories locally similar to this.

    1. A guy put a camera in his bathroom to film his children's friends & babysitter.

    2. A guy put a mini-camera in a lava lamp and had his daughter give it to her best friend.

    Two different guys. What they all go to pervert school together?????

    I think they are just looking at new technology in ways to suit their purposes. A year or so ago we also had a guy who mounted a GPS unit in his ex-girlfriends car. He kept showing up wherever she was, even when she went out of town.
    When my daughter started college I warned her about going to college dorms, to watch for web cams- as they can be used to broadcast intimate moments.
    Almost anything can be used for the wrong purpose, it just takes time for perverts to think up new uses.

    I just caught a quick piece on tv talking about cyber bullying. One young boy ended up committing suicide. The kids were talking about how bad it can get at school and then if follows you home into your computer.

    I didn't read about that. (Can you give me a hint on what to search to read about it?) Thanks in advance if you can help!

    Technology can be pretty scary. I thought it was amazing that a tech in Texas could operate my home computer to help me fix it. I also found it amazing that we can find our homes on one application (photos from satellite or whatever it is?)
