There have so far been three reported incidents at Boston University involving voyeurism. The most recent incident was last Friday, where a girl showering at Warren Towers spotted an iPhone on the floor, apparently recording her. When she tried to move it with her foot, a hand reached into the shower, grabbed the phone, and fled the bathroom.
Suspects have yet to be identified, and according to the Boston University Police Department, there is not enough information to relate the three incidents to the same person. Massachusetts Law states that photographing or videotaping people without their knowledge or consent is punishable by up to two and a half years in prison, a $5,000 fine, or both.
It is a known fact that the more technologically sophisticated we are becoming, the easier we can perform these devious acts. Smartphones like the ones used in these incidents are convenient, pocket-sized gadgets. They allow their user to record a video or snap a picture on the fly. When these smartphones get into the wrong hands, they can be extremely dangerous and harmful devices.
