I wish sex offenders would get harsher sentences!

I can’t believe there are people like that!

Our country is too light on sentencing. Even if you commit a crime, when you realize how light the sentencing is, you see no reason to not do it again. Like when you get caught, you can just pay a fine or cut a deal of some sort…If you want to get this kind of thing to go away, you have to increase the sentencing, and set make an example for the rest of society. It’s not perfect but we can reduce crime this way. If we can’t do that, than this kind of shit bag crimes will never go away. Anyway whatever

Jiman An:

That disgusting fucker makes me want to puke.

 

In another version of the article it wasn’t specified that the washroom with the camera was the women’s washroom, so readers assumed it was a unisex washroom:

nothinggive:

ke, why did he take pictures of dudes?

snowmagician:

Ha ha, yea. I was wondering the same thing. Maybe it wasn’t for his own enjoyment, but he planned to blackmail them or something? When you’re extorting someone, it doesn’t matter if they are male or female. ke ke.

snowmagician:


ke ke ke, Or more simply put, maybe it is his other part time job?

Taewook Choi:

So he wanted to see guys pee and poo and things like that? ㅡㅡ

Hyeonjun Soh:

Our country has thousands of Cafes… and out of those cafes.. Is that ONE guy the only one who likes recording? I bet there are way more victims…

Comments from dongA.com:

전상중(deeppur4p):

People have this thing called a conscience, but sex offenders have less of a conscience than even a dirty animal. Animals looking at humans like that should be captured and beaten.

윤성만(smanyoon):

Pathetic douchebags watching people like that in front of their computer should have their brains pithed. You either have to make it so they can’t move their head again or they will keep peeping.

한동진(oceanblu):

he he he“>Why would he want to do something like that? You can see their complete body form and exposed legs while they are wearing clothes. I wonder what he does after seeing that? Ha ha ha

김기중(ki6872):

Maybe he was watching them with a secret camera because someone wants to steal their family jewels…..?

      Really, your worst?

  • candy

    was it really that amusing for this dude to discover that women also farted, peed and took shits? …like we weren’t humans?

  • jamasian

    Why didn’t they say “where” she found it? This is why I try not to use public bathrooms. -_-

  • Tony Hardin

    This guy is not the worst criminal in the world; this crime involves no sexual or physical violation, only a visual intrusion. He deserves heapings of lenency.

    Funny how everybody here is complaining about how sick this is, yet they ALL came here to read about it. (Myself included). :-)
