Tennessee appeals judges say it's OK to make creepy videos of women without their consent

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Three judges all men wrote three separate but nearly identical opinions concluding it's not a crime in Tennessee to film fully clothed women without their consent if they're in public.

The issue arose in the case of an admitted sexual deviant who was convicted of unlawful photography and admitted he stalked women in retail stores and filmed their "private areas" for sexual gratification.

Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals Judges D. Kelly Thomas Jr., James Curwood Witt Jr. and Thomas T. Woodall collectively and separately tossed out unlawful photography convictions against the Sullivan County man, who has a history of public indecency charges.

In three separate opinions, the trio reach the same conclusion: No one has a right to expect privacy in the digital age.

3. They could have at least posted a pic of this guy.

That way women will know who to knock the shit out of.

4. unfortunately

it's difficult to cull out a crime that wouldn't require CCTV or security cameras or really anyone filming in a public place to get permission from every person who appeared in front of their camera.

I would think however that standard stalking rules could apply, and I'd probably hold the store liable if there's a guy running around doing this and they aren't addressing it quickly.

5. Outlawing "upskirt" shots would doom FOX News.

6. I don't know how you can write a law that excludes his photography

but permits store cameras. He will be serving time (honestly I think about the same amount) for his sexual assault of one of the women who were photographed.
