One Question (Erin Andrews)
Thanks to my man Scrap, Doug Sheckler to those who don’t know, and his ability to start a veritable crap storm — not too mention, his ability to search Dailymotion — Erin
While the fallout has been far and wide — hell hath no fury like a protective ESPN, apparently — I’m left with one question: How, in all that’s holy, are these things legal?
According to the description, the peephole viewers were made to be used by law enforcement, which is all well and good. If I was a cop getting ready for a potentially violent bust involving a house/apartment/hotel room, I’d want to know what’s on the other side of the door as well. That being said, they weren’t made to film a naked Erin Andrews in her hotel as she prepares for her day. That would be, um, illegal? So if that’s about the only thing the general public would use something like a peephole viewer for, why are they available to the public?
And the answer is, yes, I did watch the video(s) in question. Google cache is a powerful entity.
Update: There’s some doubt a peephole viewer was used to film EA, but the point remains.
