Upskirt Videos

STRAITS TIMES - In less than three hours, a 38-year-old renovation contractor took upskirt pictures of 21 women with a pinhole camera attached to his right shoe. Chua Kar Gee followed his victims at Bugis Village on Dec 31 last year and took pictures of their underwear. Police officers patrolling the area saw him looking suspiciously at women who walked past him at a bus stop. They tailed him and saw him follow a woman closely, then slide his right leg between her legs before walking away. They arrested him at Bugis MRT station. He was found with a pinhole camera attached to his right shoe. It was attached to a mini video camera hidden in his sock.  On Tuesday, Chua, who is married with two young children, was jailed for 16 weeks after admitting five of 21 charges of insulting the modesty of a woman.

Police statistics showed a clear increase of insulting of modesty cases - from 571 in 2013 to 629 last year.

I had been reading a lot about these outrage of modesty cases recently.  From the popularity of smart phones these days, it is very easy for some guys to succumb to temptations to just place the phones under some ladys' skirts. From the increase of these types of cases, it is obvious that the current punishment of fining is inadequate to deter such crimes.

If Michael Fay can be caned for vandalism, I don't see why caning should not be made mandatory for this type of cases.  Perhaps with canings and fines, such cases can be reduced.  The modesty and safety of our women in public places should be upheld.
