Canadian facing indecency charges

By johnboy - 10 December 2013 8

ACT Policing has arrested a 27-year-old Canadian man after he indecently filmed another man showering yesterday (December 9) morning.

Around 8am yesterday, police attended a Civic hostel after receiving a report that a man had been seen filming another man while he was showering.

Police attended the hostel and spoke to the victim. As a result, police arrested a 27-year-old Canadian man who is currently holidaying in Australia.

The man was conveyed to the ACT Watch House and will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning. He has been charged with one count of Act of Indecency without Consent.

Obviously didn’t know that porn is easily available here. Should have gone to Fishwyck.

(Whatever happened to the “Mustang Ranch”?)

Mustang Ranch moved a few doors up and is now operating out of Fantasy Lane.

As far as this nonsense is concerned, what a waste of police time. What a welcome to Australia to have to put up with this crap. Nobody was harmed, you can see that every day at Kambah Pool or in a gym or pool change room. Hopefully the court will throw this out.

Are you serious????

Mr Slicker, you’re the sort who gives the rest of your kind a bad name.

Consent and the Subjective Expectation of Privacy are the issues here.

If someone chooses to go to Kambah Pool and show some flesh, they consent to being seen by others, and maybe to being filmed (or maybe not, I don’t know what kind of shenanigans y’all get up to there…). Exactly what the clientele there hold as a mutually reasonable subjective expectation of privacy is up to them and any other willing participants.

Being filmed in a shower, be it at home or in a shared dorm scenario, is again one holding an existing expectation of privacy by anyone using that shower, and mutual consent of all participants if it gets redefined.
