    In Coney Island there are a sophisticated cam setup on the top of the bathrooms at Stillwell Avenue. You are being seriously watched there is multiple cameras pointing in all directions. I think the park ordered these to protect their interests and employees. How do you feel about cameras videoing you at the beach. That is a bit invasive. Very bad stuff… And for what it is work, you are no safer. It only means that they might catch the perp.

    I cannot wait until all citizens will be engraved with a number that cameras can follow. Then laws of taxation can be made based on every move you make. Jay walk = $200. Smoke on the Beach $400. Pee behind the tree in a forest – 1 Year in Prison. Double Park your car and run in the store for a bottle of water – $50. If you are married, being with another woman… Balls cut off and so on. Video surveillance seems ok now, but it sets the stage for the government to control people who might have to fight for freedom of our country. You just never know, so don’t defend all these cameras without some serious thought


    i believe that the punishment should fit the crime. if he gets caught, he should get the same done to him. anyone that shakes a kid, they should do the same but with more force behind it,especially if the kid gets brain damaged. thats just me though, AN EYE FOR AN EYE….

    First of all not all New Yorkers are puertorican. Second it’s spelled puertorican and because he’s hispanic doesn’t mean he’s puertorican. He could be dominican, mexican, columbian ect. Nevertheless this perv should be caught and put behind bars where he belong!!!

    Who gave the NYPD permission to record and post his picture? Was a Warrant issued? Did anyone ask him if it was okay first? Recording people without their permission or posting their pictures publicly is an unlawful invasion of privacy according to the 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which clearly states, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to searched, and the persons or things to be seized”. Camera surveillance is unlawful and must be abolished!

      sounds to me you have something to hide….

    • Democrtic Pottie

      Not in a public area and gee they catch a lot of bad guy’s this way. Why are you on a camera doing a crime or just a jerk?

    • Rave

      And if you were really educated about the US Constitution you would know that our rights are LIMITED. Nothing is 100% absolute. I suppose you would rather this dangerous person run the streets freely? Generally speaking, what if it was your girlfriend or sister they had targeted?

    • Rose

      It is unconstitutional only if your are videotaped someplace where you would expect a sense of privacy, like inside your home. If you are out in public and in plain view of everyone where you don’t expect privacy, then it is legal. Do your homework before you post.

    • Trishe

      Perhaps his victims identified him, hence probable cause. Surveillance is legal as long as the public is warned. BIG BROTHER IS HERE TO STAY.

    Quite a way to get cheap thrills.

    Italian decent

    He’s wearing a club America soccer jersey, so yeah, definitely hispanic. But then again, all club America fans are gay, so I guess the police are following the wrong lead!

  • David Goldstein

    He looks like a hispanic.
