Despite customer complaints and an ongoing criminal investigation, the owner of a Mechanicsville restaurant with a surveillance camera in the men's bathroom claims he's within his rights.

Dennis Smith, the owner of Calabash Seafood Restaurant and Club Midway, said he installed the camera after years of vandalism to the bathroom, including $1,000 in recent damage. The camera -- hanging from the ceiling just above a toilet stall -- is situated to capture patrons as they enter without revealing those using bathroom facilities, he said.

Yes, the liberalls will support it. They have no problem with the Obama administration spying on everyone.

Couldn't he place the camera outside the restroom facing the door?

Quote from the owner:

Quote:
"I'm not concerned with the public's opinion of how to run my business," said the 55-year-old owner. "I know how to run it better than anybody. I don't need them, the county, the government or anybody else telling me how to do it."
And another one:

Quote:
"If I have to, I'll walk around here with an M-16 to protect my property if that's what it's going to take"
Sure sounds like a conservative to me.

No, the Conservatives will support it. I just came from the foaming-at-the-mouth "bakery refusing to make a gay wedding cake" thread, and all the conservatives insisted that it's a private business and the owner could do whatever he wants.
If the patrons don't like it, they can look for another establishment.
Problem?

Not deflection at all. Northnut mentioned the usual suspects and Harrier identified them - Obama supporters.
