Are There Hidden Cameras In The Bookstore?

Ask yourself this question,Since the bookstore has so many cameras,are there hidden cameras in the theatre,video booths,spa area,or private rooms?Now,it is illegal to have hidden cameras,and not let the customers know that they are being videotaped,but it's what they do with the images that is so disturbing.In order for them to sell,or distribute these images they have to have you sign a Release Form.This states that they have your permission to use the images as they want.

Now,it's just based on opinion,but there are a lot of cameras in and around the business,so it doesn't seem too much of a stretch to have cameras mounted else where in the store that you do not see.They say that these are for Security reasons.Hm-mm,why would they need so much security?They are protected,they are mob run/organization run,why would they have Fear of anything.It just doesn't make sense.Unless they are video taping/disc recording for other reasons,and what are these reasons?

One thing I heard was that,Things happen in the parking lot!How can that be?I thought that this is a safe and totally legitimate business.You mean to tell me that Some Of The People that come to this business aren't Safe to be around?!Then why do you/staff let them come here?You need to keep your Customers safe,Right?!

Same inside the bookstore.Some people come into the bookstore and cause Trouble.How can that be?!Again,same as the parking lot.I thought you have muscle,etc. to keep these people out!You mean to tell me that this business is not that safe?

Ask yourself,why would they need to keep track of all those images?I guess it's because of all those people that cause trouble in the bookstore.So,that means that this business is not that safe.Then I would ask myself,Why would I want to go to a place that people that cause trouble go to?There is no alcohol there,Right?So,it's not like a bar,bar fights,etc.So,what causes the problems,and why should I even go there?

Good Question!

why do you go there? It's simple don't go there and there is no problem for you. I suspect there are hidden cameras too!! When I reported this theory to the corrupt local police they laughed at me! They asked if I had seen them and I said of course not they're hidden. As usual they said I had a very fertile imagination. Be very careful!! If you suspect hidden cameras call the FBI !!!

Good Question!
I agree with almost everything you wrote.
Hidden cameras are LEGAL except in certain circumstances such as bathrooms, changing clothes areas, etc.
Or when angled to show up a womans dress.
Otherwise its totally legal for businesses to have hidden cameras to catch any illegal activities that can occur in a public setting.
Such as having a hidden camera around cash registers, merchadise aisles, enterances, exits, parking lots, etc.

In this case its perfectly legal for the bookstore to have cameras in the theater, steam room, party room, store areas,parking lot, and even in the booth areas etc.
It would be ilegal in the bathroom, private rooms, and showers because its legally is reasonable to assume that a person could be changing clothes in there.

As for where this bookstore actually is placing those cameras it wouldn't surprise me at all if they were placing those cameras in EVERY area including the ilegal areas.
Only an idiot would think their privacy is being protected by the owner of this bookstore.
He's probably selling video's of the action going on at this bookstore.
People oddly enough will pay good money for such trash especially when its real amatures and not professionally done porn.Makes ya wonder how many of these customers realize the owner is doing this to them.

doing what? You and the other guy are guessing that? If you have proof report them? If you don't have proof, it'd just another case of you imagining things!

that poster in another thread certainly sounded true to me.
When she described how you guys stalked her throughout the place that's the same story i've heard from others as well as read about it in other forums and groups.
I don't have to create anything.
You guys do a great job of showing everyone on here just what you guys are really like.
Your true colors come out loud and clear.

Or maybe Dummy is not making up anything.Take a look around.Count the number of connections going into the monitors behind the counter.What do they do with all those hours of video?Take a good look,remember one thing People Never Look Up.You are so involved in getting off that you don't see anything.It's a great distraction,and you guys are so stupid you wouldn't look anyway.What happens when the bookstore isn't doing very well,and all of a sudden your wife or girlfriend receives a CD showing you in all your glory with something that crawled into the bookstore.That should go over real well.Or,who ever you work for gets a CD showing the same thing.Some people in the public sector don't care for that,especially in these times.They can fire easily,because there are so many people out there looking for work,and they will probably work for less than you make.Need to think before you do something stupid and ruin your life,and your family's.

Good point that you made.
I was only thinking they were selling those as homemade videos.
But yep they can be also used as black mail videos too.
Especially going to someone's wife or boss.
Great way to lose big time in a divorce or a well paying job.
Yes some jobs really do care about image. School employees, city workers, library workers, or any job where the person meets the public on a regular basis.
Even if its not black mail or being sold it could also just be someone working at the bookstore sharing it with friends and it just keeps on being copied and passed around until it makes it way to your wife or boss.
Do you really want to take that chance ?
Most bookstores are small time operations.
But this bookstore has the money and the tech to be able to do it.

Officer: I would like a search warrant to the adult bookstore

Judge: Oh I heard all about them on Topix from some dingbat who calls himself Truth Seeker. LOL. What do you need the search warrant for?

Officer: Sir, A Topix poster imagines that there COULD BE hidden cameras there. Not only that butTruth Seeker imagines that the Book Store MIGHT be taping people so they could MAYBE blackmail them!

Judge: HA HA HA, That's the funniest thing I heard all day. They have some real idiots on there! LOL LMFAO

Officer: I thought you needed a good laugh. Haha have great day sir.

your honor i would like to enter into evidence exhibit A...which clearly shows a crudely hand drawn image of a stick man in a trench coat viewing what appears to be a closed circuit video monitor...
