Shut your shades if you're naked. Not that hard.

It also helps to have motion lights and a dog can help.
BTW, if I caught a person on my property peering in my windows, I would not hesitate to provide a free "tune-up."

[quote=Summering;22723483]This is a true story and happening as we speak in upstate New York.

There was a peeping tom in the neighborhood. Many saw him in the distance. One came nose to nose with him at a window.
He would park his black jeep and go roam around the backs of homes.
Finally just recently he was caught. A 50 year old man who parks his car and quote " just walks out and about for a smoke."....
Many in the neighborhood are quite scared. The worst thing is he is set free as the only charge can be "trespassing."

Well, great......
What has to happen before he can be taken to jail and charged with something of greater value.
So we let a dangerous man go free to repeat his vile roaming.

I know many neighbors who are quite frightened that this sick person will come back. He was not even afraid to do his roaming during the light of day.

People are afraid, and there is nothing they can do about it.

Does this mean something bad has to happen before he is hauled away?

This is a big problem in America. Dealing with dangerous people and no law to stop them.

I am praying for these neighborhoods, and you should too. That everyone stays safe, and the monster heads for the mountains.[/QUOT

This is a big problem in America. Dealing with dangerous people and no law to stop them.

I guess thats why we have 2-million in prison, dwarfing anyone else !

If you have a peeping Tom around and you are worried, lock your doors, stay alert, and have a shotgun ready(if you are really worried). Actually, you can likely deal with this problem without a weapon. Peeping toms are trying to be discreet - the last thing they want is attention. If you don't want to confront someone make loits of noise, shout, scream, bang on a pot. They will most likely leave.

People have become wusses. Time was people dealt with there own problems instead of screaming for another law to be passed. Government is to big already. If a law was passed then lot's of people would get arrested simply for looking at anothers property. Now be a big girl and take care of this yourself. You don't need the government to hold your hand and say "There, there it will be alright." Self reliance needs to make a big comeback.
Wow,I can't believe you expect people to take the law into their own hands. Right now we are dealing with this as in the Trayvon Martin case.
You can't just go about beating someone who peeps in your window. That's lawlessness. I also pay for the cops to do a job of protecting me.we all do in the form of taxes.
Remember,in America the peeping Tom would have more rights than the victims.

I have young daughters,so I guess I would have to wait until one gets raped for the cops to do something.

Take pictures of him prowling about. Be obvious about it. That'll help him move along.
