DEERFIELD BEACH — Private eye Shirley Ann Casey took on a mystery that had stumped Navy officials and police. But sure enough, it was the tenacious Casey, a gumshoe at 52, who cracked the case.

I have discovered that it’s not hard to hand-code a web page in HTML, but it is a bit tedious. It is, however, very hard to hand-code a page that an HTML validator won’t tear to shreds.

Does anyone have any specific information on the legality of a private individual (not a licensed detective) wearing a concealed video camera to record the inside of someone’s house they’ve been legally invited into?

I know it’s illegal to record audio, except through the loophole of the one-party states, but what about video?

Warning! Warning! Warning!

I’ve got a major revamp coming on the entire website. Same rough design, but now entirely hand-coded in HTML to get past the many limitations and PIA’s of Yahoo’s sitebuilder program (yes, easy to use, but easy means limited, plus it’s got a few annoyances I won’t go into).

I’m expecting problems, but I’ve tried to avoid them. Please let me know if you find any errors or mismatched pages, so I can fix it. Thanks team.

I’m posting these because I’m shocked at the numbers. I don’t know if they are fully accurate, but if they are even HALF accurate they make my stomach turn. Folks, rapists are at the bottom of my human-scum scale… lower than bullies and wife beaters, but not by much. They aren’t as bad as those that abuse children, but only JUST barely. Christ, I’m gonna be sick reading these. I apologize to those of you with tender hearts and weak stomachs, but you gotta know.

Here are the facts, found on a page:

Fact #1: One of every four reported rapes take place in a public area or in a parking garage. (Violence Against Women, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1994.)

Fact #2: 31% of female victims reported that the offender was a stranger. (Violence against Women, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1994.)

Fact #3: An overwhelming majority of rape service agencies believe that public education about rape, and expanded counseling and advocacy services for rape victims would be effective in increasing the willingness of victims to report rapes to the police. (Rape in America, 1992, National Victim Center with Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center.)

Fact #4: The FBI estimates that only 37% of all rapes are reported to the police. U.S. Justice Department statistics are even lower, with only 26% of all rapes or attempted rapes being reported to law enforcement officials.

Fact #5: Somewhere in America, a woman is raped every 2 minutes. (National Crime Victimization Survey. Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Department of Justice, 1996.)

Fact #6: In 1995, 354,670 women were the victims of a rape or sexual assault. (National Crime Victimization Survey. Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Department of Justice, 1996.)

Fact #7: Over the last two years, more than 787,000 women were the victims of a rape or sexual assault. (National Crime Victimization Survey. Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Department of Justice, 1996.)

Fact #8: It is estimated that 72 of every 100,000 females in the United States were raped last year. (Federal Bureau of Investigation, Uniform Crime Statistics, 1996.)

Fact #9: Approximately 28% of victims of sexual violence are raped by their husbands or boyfriends, 35% by acquaintances, and 5% by other relatives. (Violence against Women, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1994.)

Fact #10: In 1994-1995, only 251,560 rapes and sexual assaults were reported to law enforcement officials — less than one in every three. (National Crime Victimization Survey, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Department of Justice, 1996.)

Fact #11: 68% of rapes occur between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. (Violence against Women, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1994.)

Fact #12: At least 45% of rapists are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. (Violence against Women, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1994.)

Fact #13: In 29% of rapes, the offender uses a weapon. (Violence against Women, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1994.)

Fact #14: In 47% of rapes, the victim sustained injuries other than rape injuries. (Violence against Women, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1994.)

Fact #15: 75% of female rape victims require medical care after the attack. (Violence against Women, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1994.)

Fact #16: Approximately one-third of all juvenile victims of sexual abuse cases are children younger than 6 years of age. (Violence and the Family, Report of the American Psychological Association Presidential Task Force on Violence and the Family, 1996.)

Fact #17: According to the Justice Department, one in two rape victims are under age 18; one in six are under age 12. (Child Rape Victims, 1992. U.S. Department of Justice.)

Fact #18: About 81% of rape victims are white; 18% are black; 1% are of other races. (Violence Against Women, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1994.)

Fact #19: About half of all rape victims are in the lowest third of income distribution; half are in the upper two-thirds. (Violence against Women, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1994.)

Fact #20: Two new studies of adolescent girls have found that 1 in 4 has been sexually or physically abused or forced by a date to have sex against her will. (New York Times, 10/1/97.)

Fact #21: 18% of girls in grades 5 through 12 report some form of physical or sexual abuse, more than half of which was perpetrated by a family member. (Commonwealth Fund 1997.)

Fact #22: In 1995 more than 180,000 calls were made to 911 for family disputes in New York City. (NY Police Department 1995 Statistics.)

Fact #23: The total annual cost of domestic violence to NYC residents is $500 million. This includes the costs of emergency room visits, law enforcement, court action detention, homelessness, and foster care, as well as the money that employers lose to reduced worker productivity, increased turnover, and absenteeism. (NYC Statistics from the 1996 Report of the Commission on Domestic Violence)

Fact #24: Domestic violence occurs in approximately 25-33% of same-sex relationships. (NYC Gay and Lesbian Anti-Violence Project, October 1996.)

Fact #25: Boys who witness their fathers’ violence are 10 times more likely to engage in spouse abuse in later adulthood than boys from non-violent homes. (Family Violence Interventions for the Justice System, 1993)

Fact #26: An estimated 50,000 women and children are trafficked into the United States annually for sexual exploitation or forced labor. (U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, 2000)

Fact #27: Somewhere in America a woman is battered, usually by her intimate partner, every 15 seconds. (UN Study On The Status of Women, Year 2000)

Fact #28: A University of Pennsylvania research study found that domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to low-income, inner-city Philadelphia women between the ages of 15 to 44 — more common than automobile accidents, mugging and rapes combined. In this study domestic violence included injuries caused by street crime.

Fact #29: Every 90 seconds, somewhere in America, someone is sexually assaulted. (Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN). RAINN calculation based on 1999 USDOJ NCVS data.)

Fact #30: A new report suggests that one in five adolescent girls become the victims of physical or sexual violence, or both, in a dating relationship. (New York Times, 8/01/01)

The following is NOT just for commercial purposes, but also because I truly hate the perpetrators of these crimes, and hope they all are stopped, injured even, by some tough lady who won’t put up with this kind of crap. No mercy to rapists (In my humble opinion):

Stun Guns – Devices used to inflict both physical pain on an attacker, and to disrupt the neuro-muscular activity of the attacker. I have tested some of these, on myself (yes, I’m that dedicated), and I can assure you an attacker will NOT like the experience.

Pepper Spray – also known as Mace, a handheld canister which can be used to spray a special solution into the eyes and face of an attacker, causing intense pain. Will also swell the mucous membranes, causing difficulty in breathing and forcing the eyes to slam shut. An effective way to escape from an attacker.

Personal Alarm – a handheld device that may be attached to keyring, or purse, or kept in pocket, that when activated will produce up to two of the most effective ways of drawing attention to an attack: a loud electronic alarm/siren, and a flashing strobe light. Often, just drawing public attention to an attack is enough to make an attacker seek elsewhere. These people are not courageous, or they would not prey upon those “weaker” than them.

Self Defense Weapons – an object used to protect yourself from physical attack. An offensive measure, intended to harm the perpetrator.

Self Defense Videos – Videos about self-defense, fighting, protecting yourself from attack, becoming stronger and more confident about your person, defending yourself from attackers.

I hope that you never meet one of these sniveling attackers on the street, but if you do… I hope you hurt them bad. Real bad.

Okay, this one’s kind of gross (to me), but I thought I’d include it for you to examine.

This company offers a mail-in method of checking out a spouse (or lovers) undergarments for semen from a person outside of your relationship. Here’s a quote from their website:

“The Original CheckMate Infidelity Test Kit will quickly and easily monitor your spouse’s sexual activity outside of the relationship by detecting traces of semen left in their undergarments after sex.”

More information from the net on infidelity & cheating (and my comments):

Experts say that a gut instinct is the most powerful indicator of a cheating lover. Statistics say that 85% of woman who feel their lover is cheating are correct. 50% of men who feel their lover is cheating are right. The first clue is seldom obvious. Typically, it’s a “feeling” that something is different. You notice minor changes in your lover’s behavior. Even the most skilled cheater can’t hide these clues and only a lover in total denial can miss them. The first sign can be a comment or incident that seems harmless but remains in your mind. The following is a short list of possible symptoms:

Your spouse spends an excessive amount of time in the on-line chat rooms.
(Definitely an indicator that your spouse is lonely, possibly unhappy. May not be cheating on you, but is searching for communication they’re not getting at home. Worth talking to them about, add *communication* to your relationship. If they’re non-communicative and won’t open up, that might be another sign of trouble)

Your spouse pays less attention to you.
(This is an indication of a weakness, of some kind, in the relationship. Before you jump to conclusions, try paying attention to them, see what happens.)

Your spouse is preoccupied with on-line chatting, more distant emotionally
(This is a repeat of the item two up from this one)

Your spouse is insisting on chatting alone.
(Bad sign… wouldn’t matter if they included you in on this. I know some couples who enjoy chatting together online… they love making fun of the folks who they’re chatting with.)

Your spouse has unaccounted time away from home.
(That’s a bad one, if it happens frequently. There are solutions to your concerns, if they are doing this a lot. GPS tracking can be done discreetly, but it’s a bit expensive for your ordinary person, and you need to make sure you have a legal right to do this.)

Your spouse has a decreased interest in sex.
(First, ask yourself, have you shown a decreased interest in sex yourself? Some of this goes back to paying attention to your spouse. If you’ve not gained like a thousand pounds and stopped bathing, and you are trying your best to interest your spouse in sex, and you’re still getting rebuffed… that’s not a good sign)

Your spouse becomes defensive during normal conversations
(Especially about conversations concerning what they were doing, where they were, who was there… etc.)

Discovery of a post office box.
(Unless they own their own mail order business, most people don’t need a post office box… why get mail at a separate location from their home. Maybe they’re not cheating, but they’re up to something.)

The toilet bowl seat is up, (men) and when you left home it was down.
(Men… take note of this, women don’t leave the seat up. Even if they were cleaning the toilet bowl, they always put the seat down. This means someone male has been in your home. Who? Maybe the pest-control guy used the bathroom… maybe not. You could look into the possibility of getting a hidden camera to find out for sure (not in the bathroom, though)).

The passenger seat in the car has been moved and is not in the usual position.
(Not a strong indicator in itself, but the question “Who changed the seat position?” may lead to indicators)

An unusual number of hang ups or wrong number calls.
(First, is your number close to another number? Like Pizza Hut delivery or something? Do they just hang up when they hear your voice? Does it sound like the same person or persons? Try *69, or check your caller ID. Someone could be having conversations with your spouse that you don’t know about. Want to find out for sure? Maybe a phone call recorder, discreetly placed in the house. Make sure it’s legal first (probably is, in your own home) If you’re not sure, then only use the recorded info for your personal info… don’t listen and tell, or you might get burned.

Fragrances of colognes and/or perfumes are noticed on clothing of a cheating spouse.
(That is, fragrances other than their own).

Automobile mileage is unusual for claims made by cheating spouse.
(As in, I’m driving downtown to renew my driver’s license… and the mileage is significantly different from that for going downtown)

Your spouse explains a late return home as a result of having to drive out of town on business, but yet the mileage on the car indicates less than ten mile driven.
(See above, bad sign)

Discover the recent opening of another checking account.
(See P.O. Box. Why do they need a separate account? Is it for business? Sneaky business?)

Unaccounted for hairs of a different color on clothing.
(Not a joke, it takes physical contact to get hairs on clothing. A hug will do it, but so will taking off your jacket and placing it where a hair is.)

Cigarette smoke on clothing that can not be explained.
(Going to bars? Spending time with a smoker? Might not be cheating, but why can’t they explain it? Defensiveness about this is bad.)

Credit card transactions for unknown or unusual types of purchases.
(If you don’t handle the bills you won’t see this, but if you’re doubtful about the faithfulness of your partner, offer to handle the bills. If they refuse, or won’t let you look at them, look out.)

Cosmetic, perfume or lipstick purchases listed but not received.
(Sounds like gifts to me. Anything you think he might buy for you as a gift, but you didn’t get, is suspicious)

An increase in toll and/or long distance calls.
(Just bring it up: “I wonder why our bill is so high? Who’s been calling this number here that’s listed 12 times?” and see the reaction. If they get a cellphone in their own name, privately, after this… well, bad sign too. Again, you can find out who’s calling who with a phone call recorder.)

Increase in ATM withdrawals. Check the transaction record to ID the withdrawal.
Time and Date
(This only means something in context. If they’re spending a lot of cash, it could mean a lot of things (most of them not so good). Drugs, porn, alcohol, sex. Lot’s of things are cash only transactions, but only some of them are bad… and require a lot of money).

Income tax returns revealing unexplained travel and business expense deductions.
(Is your spouse a travelling salesperson? No? Do you remember then travelling this much?)

Florist or jewelry bills.
(Same as credit card expenditures for gift-like items you don’t remember getting. Who’s getting these gifts?)

Credit card gas purchases that are inconsistent for the amount of miles driven on the car.
(I don’t really get this one, unless he or she is paying for someone else’s fuel… or they’ve got another car. Not sure)

Joins a health gym or weight reducing clinic.
(This is only an in-context indicator… make sure it’s not because they went to the doctor and had a health scare. Add weight-loss and health gym to sexy underwear you never see them wear, and hmmm….)

Visits made to the tanning salon.
(Same deal, in-context indicator. Have they always done this? Doesn’t mean much. Are they doing it for the first time, ever? That’s weird. Truth is, married folks who aren’t “looking” pay less attention to their appearance, which is stupid really, IMHO. Single people always try to look their best if they’re looking for someone… it’s not a good idea to let the “competition” make you look bad. Still, I believe in the sanctity of marriage vows. They SHOULDN’T even be looking. But it doesn’t hurt to keep yourself attractive… knowing the folks out there who are doing the same).

New hair style.
(Hmmm… on men, yes, this is odd. Women, I’m not so sure. Something to think about in a “total picture” kind of way)

Wearing hair spray, colognes & perfumes more often.
(This is an indicator that they’re trying to make themselves more attractive. If not for you, then for who?)

Needs a pager, cellular phone.
(Is it for business? Let’s face it, everybody’s got a cellphone nowadays. Make sure this isn’t a false lead).

Excessive buying of new and different clothes.
(You’ll have to make a judgement call on this one, depending on the person. Only YOU can define what seems excessive)

Sudden and unexplained change in clothing style.
(This is like the hairstyle… with other factors, it might be a sign. Unless they are fashion conscious.)

The buying of sexy underwear or lingerie.
(… that you never see them wear… or give you as a gift)

There is an unexplained aloofness or indifference in the relationship.
(This is an indicator, but not necessarily of cheating (yet). It does spell out loudly, they aren’t happy. I hate to see relationships break up, try mending it first. A little attention and effort go a long way. The relationship might improve dramatically, and if not… this becomes a much stronger indicator).

This signs were taken from a website advertising a product for “catching” a cheating spouse, I added my comments because it’s important to take these in context. One single sign does not a cheater make. The best indicator of infidelity has always been, and will always be, that you yourself believe that infidelity exists. If you love them, but feel they are cheating on you, chances are your love has helped you to overlook the countless clues of their indiscretion until the weight of the evidence has piled up too high not to notice it.

I do believe that a marriage can recover from this… but it’s tough, and takes a lot of work on both partners.

Be cautious before you accuse. Make sure you’re not mistaken, and make sure you are not possibly in danger if you expose their secret. Maybe a public place will help to calm the situation.

If you think that your partner is unfaithful, we have a number of products that might help you discover the truth in our Spy Equipment products section.

Thanks for reading, and I hope that your partner is not violating the vows of your marriage, but if they are, I am always at your service.

Here’s some stat’s I found on the net about Infidelity, and Cyber Infidelity:

57% of people have used the Internet to flirt.

38% of people have engaged in explicit online sexual conversation and 50% of people have made phone contact with someone they chatted with online.

Evidence proves there is a high correlation between on-line cybersex and subsequent real-time sexual affairs.

Evidence supports the existence of disinhibition, accelerated intimacy, and hyper-sexual online behavior that can easily lead to real-time sexual affairs

31% of people have had an online conversation that has led to real-time sex.

If you think you’re being cheated on, you might want to look at getting some Spy Equipment – Discounts on retail prices.

New updates to Private Investigator Supplies and Equipment

Just about every product is available now. Now discounted everything (and I haven’t even made my first sale) 🙂
Why? Because I’m not doing this for the same reasons as every single price gouger out there. Sure I’d like to make a little money from this (need more equipment, I’m always in need of equipment), but I’m tired of the 1000% markup that seems to be prevalent for this kind of equipment. I’ll charge even less if I can find a supplier who will charge ME less for the products.

Anyway, if you need hidden cameras, pepper spray, video surveillance equipment, and whatnot, check it out. If you find something cheaper out there, let me know, and I’ll raise hell with my supplier. You and I will work out some kind of deal you’re happy with.

So please at least take a look at it, and let me know what you think (via email… I don’t know how to do comments yet on this here bloggy thing).

Thanks bunches,

have a grand piano (I mean, have a great day).
