    women's faces as well as the rest of their bodies. Those images becoming public is what I referred to as tragic. If the images are just of unidentifiable genitalia, or if the images remain out of the public eye, then I agree that the damage to these women is pretty minimal.

      That and the prospect that there may have been minors among the victims.  If even ONE is involved, that's enough to call it tragic.

      •  it's a weird story (0+ / 0-)

        but one would assume no more showed in the video he made than he saw in person.  If it's not tragic for a minor to get an medical examination by a doctor who is discreet about his pleasure in looking at young bodies, because for sure some doctors like to see naked young women and some will even be child pornography consumers, than it's not tragic for someone's creepy doctor to have a video, other than that the police will look at it, and that does makes it creepier.  We've all seen those TV shows where the cops enjoy watching someone's home-made porn a little too much.  So, in that case I get it, it's not just the dead doctor, it's all the cops, in which case the dead doctor has saved his victims more unwanted ogling by offing himself and making a trial unnecessary.

        but if it were me, I'd prefer the tapes to be destroyed rather than having them watched by various cops, just so I could know for sure that they guy had taped me.  

        You know, on the scale of what happens to women, this is very low rent.

          When you strip for a gynie exam--you don't risk images of your naked body and you face being posted on the Internet,.  I suspect most men who view those videos won't know that woman did not consent.   And for that matter, a good gyn may be aroused by the sight of an attractive woman--but he doesn't give into it.  It's called being a professional. If he hadn't offed himself--which tells us he knew what he did was wrong and didn't wnat others to know about i, but likely only because he knew he faced jailtime--YES, I'd want any videos of me identified because I'd want him to do some hard time for violating my privacyand then I'd sue his ass off,

          It owuldn't have been the average cop in the street looking at those videos, but more likely the oens who handle sex crimes. I knew soem of them years ago, and they were pretty decent men and women--and itmight bypass the cops and go to the prosecutors office. It was the prosecutors we had more iussues with when I was a volunteer rape crisis cousnelor.

          The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

            but the voyeur, although now cops have. I wish they'd restrict viewing to women cops with at least ten years experience.  And tell the women in the videos that guys weren't allowed to watch the evidence.  I forgot it isn't just cops, there is the prosecution, and the defense, but not this time, this time it could just be civil, the voyeur  is dead so there can be no prosecution.  .
