Cell Phone Perverts in Hoboken!

Now that everyone has a camera – every creep can film you!

Back in the day, when video cameras were bulky and obvious, you had a pretty good idea if you were being filmed or photographed.

Now that practically every cell phone has a built-in camera and HD video capabilities – it’s getting harder and harder to tell what exactly people are using their phones for.

Hoboken411 reader Nicole recounts exactly what she picked up on over at Pier A Park the other morning as she was jogging with a friend.

“Around 7:30 this morning, my roommate and I were running in Pier A Park when we passed by a man on a bench who looked like he was taking a picture of the Hudson River/Manhattan.

We continued to run by him several times and realized that every time we ran by, he looked like he was taking the same picture. I started to find this activity suspicious so the last time that I ran by him, I looked behind us. I saw that he was following us with his camera phone. When I (very aggressively) called him out on it, he literally started to laugh and did not deny anything. I have a feeling this is not his first or last time videotaping women who are out for their morning jog so I think women in Hoboken should be aware of such activity.

He was a middle aged black male of average height (he was sitting so I can’t be certain) and a pretty large gut. At the time of the incident, he was sitting on a bench wearing a white t-shirt and using a camera phone, pretending to take a picture of Manhattan but then following us with the camera as we ran by. Other than his voyeuristic tendencies, he looked very normal and sane so he won’t seem suspicious right away.”

411 Note: While filming with your cell phone in public is NOT illegal (provided they don’t invade your personal space) – how do you feel when someone you don’t know takes your picture? Or films you? Are you creeped out? Or do you accept that your life isn’t really as private as you want it to be?

No. Religion “is the opium of the people”. And some priests do much worse than look at others.

If it’s right there, look. Take in the scenery. Just don’t be gross about it by filming or touching. Save yourself a punch in the gut. Just my 2 cents.[quote comment=”208587″]I confess!

mooshu are you a communist? “religion is the opium of the people” very Stalin like socialistic thought, I was jk about going to the priest… I’m also sure you have no authority to tell me anything about religion, women dress and undress to impress men most of the time I belief, documenting a hot girl is not my style ( I’m already blessed with a great memory + imagination =D + I have a gf ) soooo don’t provoke and there won’t be any problems I’m sure.[quote comment=”208590″]No. Religion “is the opium of the people”.

Yes, I weigh 900 lbs., eat Cheetos all day long, and require the assistance of a crane to get up and leave the house.

What I meant was, it doesn’t matter what you wear– t-shirts, jeans, thongs. People look. Filming is creepy, especially for the purpose of having someone to jack off to. There are people who aren’t fame whores, you know, or advertising their teats, who just want to jog or stroll through town without being violated with a camera.

Of course, there’s really no point in explaining this to you, whisker. Can’t fix Moron after all. Bet you’re super-handsome, have all your hair, toned arms, and no whiskey-gut whatsoever, right?

Right.[quote comment=”208611″]mosh lips you should have caught jeters ball with the money you get a make over get rid of your goose down and spider vains and ware a prom dress .Obivious is your a real dream aka lonny tune..dramatic..such as a moron jogging in central park at 5am..ok right ..Her right..nuff said..you make sure you feed the geese hot today.tee shiirt kid [/quote]

No. You’re just a guy. Everyone tries to sneak a peek, especially when they’re tanning upside down.[quote comment=”208587″]I confess! I can’t stop staring at chicks tanning in thongs at Pier A! does that make me a perv? should i go to church and confess to a priest?! [/quote]

This is one of the many reasons why teenagers and tweens should not have cell phones. I’ve seen perverted boys taking pictures of girls on swings in the park (please note, most of the girls were wearing skirts!). If I ever caught a boy doing that to my daughter, I would have him thrown in jail. Game Over!

H411, didn’t you run this exact same article about a month or so ago, only the ‘crime’ in that article was standing at the bottom of the stairs at the PATH Station to get a glimpse up women’s dresses???

As a runner who sees hundreds of runners out and about every week, if you are hot enough for some guy to want to record you on his phone, CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve reached your (work-out) goal! Time to buy that bikini and head down the shore! Woo hoo!!! Me? I’m usually a sweaty mess that no one would want to record 🙁

Jonsie, really? How do you want joggers to dress? In a burka? Would that keep your perverted eyes off ’em?

I’m not entirely comfortable living in a society which obviously lacks privacy. But it is what it is. Maybe one way of combating perverts, though, is to make them equally uncomfortable, if not more so. Use your creativity– I’m sure you can figure out at least one way to do this…

Considering how far and often you’re up my arse, perhaps they can dress like poop, whisker, so that they look like you. Great perv-repellent.

Anyway, I wear t-shirts and jeans, nothing revealing. People will look no matter what you wear, sometimes, even though teats and bums and crotches aren’t anything new. Long as no one touches, I’m fine.

But as I said, one way to combat idiots is to make them feel stupid about it. Call them out. Filming is especially creepy. Film them back.[quote comment=”208571″]mooshi mush..Maybe they should dress like mother goose,or a duckling.U betcha yea [/quote]

moosh mush goosie lucy…If you wear tee shirts and jeans, has to be a reason..uggg. i know on the other side its ok for girls to be bird watchers when a guy in spandax jogs by.I’m not refereiing to geesee goose or goslins. Females are no different when it comes to admiiring a guy…As foir your tee shirts and jeans you have to be a stunner in this heat..Point of order..Police records and credit card companys warn of cell phones snapping a picture of credit cards on restuarant tables to pay the check.btw im not up your arsse. If a person does not want the attention then dress accordingly. Again btw geese are so cute..don’t flatter yourself.Im not taking you to the prom.. 😛 [quote comment=”208583″]Considering how far and often you’re up my arse, perhaps they can dress like poop, whisker, so that they look like you.

Very common, many of these pervs use the pics as good jerk-off material later on! You see this often on the PATH when the train is packed or at night when drunk women are passing out on the train. Not much you can really do about it unless you sign a complaint but by the time the cops get there the perv will be long gone. And forget about the whole citizens arrest thing, that is the fastest way to end up either with a good ass kicking or in jail yourself.
