One of the more prevalent minor ‘crimes’ or pranks that occurred when I was a very young girl was someone peeking in your window, especially at night. That really shook up people, as it was considered such an invasion of one’s dignity and privacy. Those who usually perpetrated the ‘crime’ were males who apparently had some sort of mental challenges going on, but not addressed properly. As a result, those who did such “dastardly” acts were referred to as “Peeking Toms.” No one in his or her rightful mind would do such a thing, while society didn’t like nor approve of it.
So what’s happened, especially since today everything we do is tracked and/or surveilled? How does that happen? you may be asking. It’s all done by willful and deliberate cooperation of those who sign up to be tracked and surveilled. However, there are some surveillance techniques and snooping going on most people may not be aware of.
