Creepy Cameraman Reemerges as "Surveillance Camera Man"

The creepy cameraman we saw last month entering a college and video recording into random classrooms reemerged as “surveillance camera man” where he continues to wreak havoc on random citizens on the streets in what appears to be Seattle.

And while he does come across as creepy in many instances, video recording random people as they are eating lunch, he also does a great job in challenging security guards who are under the impression that citizens are not allowed to stand on a public sidewalk and video record into the premises they are guarding.

But he also pushes his luck and the law by entering a Scientology building as well as a room where a bunch of Asian men are sitting around playing cards, both which are obviously private property.

The Scientology clips are especially funny because he returns several times after being chased out, asking if they would mind him taking or drawing pictures of their lobby.

Whoever he is, he is proving a point in that citizens do not mind being video recorded by surveillance cameras, but take great issue when video recorded by random strangers.

I am immersed in a legal case where I not only want to clear my criminal charges stemming from my arrest in January, but I want to sue the Miami-Dade Police Department for deleting my footage, which I was able to recover.

My goal is to set some type of precedent to ensure this does not happen as often as it does today where cops simply get away with it.

    Well I’m in IL but honestly if I’m out in public it’s fair game to me at least. If I don’t like it I’ll most likely tell the person to F off and if it’s annoying enough I’d probably throw down. I have no problem spending a night in the can lol.

    It might make me a hypocrite to say I don’t have a problem with stores recording me but here is why. I understand the need for those places to protect their property from five finger discount shoppers. I also have no problem with someone recording me if I was breaking the law because it would be the right thing to do. I would also have no issue if I was goofing around because comedy at your own expense is usually the best. “I mean if you can’t laugh at yourself who can you laugh at?”

    Now some asshole with a camera in my face for no reason is just trolling.. A good example would be following me around all day just because they can but since we’re face to face there is nothing stopping me from kicking their ass or at least trying. “Can’t win them all.” One thing is certain though that same person is not gonna bother me again.

    Some of his videos are still great, others he is CLEARLY entering on someone’s land, even once he is asked to leave, and at that point, he should be shot.
    AKA, that cult building, he has been there on 4 out of his 8 videos now? He shouldn’t go back, there are also other clips where he enters places which he is clearly told to leave, that is NOT public property.
    Other than that, i support his point, and 90% of his actions.
