The instrument of crime remains only an instrument

It was one of the creepier stories of the week gone by: The town administrator in Shirley was arrested on charges of illegally recording and photographing co workers by planting a miniature video camera above a toilet stall in the women's bathroom. Reaction was what you would expect. Residents expressed outrage and distress, the accused was arraigned, locks on town buildings were ordered changed, and selectmen began the process of finding a new administrator. But one reaction nobody had was to call for banning the sale of miniature video cameras. No such call would have been taken seriously, and for good reason: The fact that some criminals might use a camcorder maliciously is not a good reason to penalize the great majority of people who wouldn't.
