Today's comment comes in response to a post about a tanning salon owner in the Missouri bootheel accused of videotaping female clients
inside his store.
That prompted one reader to recall her own sordid experience with a sleazy guy with a tanning bed. Writes reader "guest":
Something similar happened several years ago in Cahokia where a local
police officer had a tanning bed in his garage. He was 'storing' the bed
for his father while his father's new home was being built. He decided
that he would build a little room in the garage so he, his girlfriend
and their friends could make use of the bed. I was a friend of the
girlfriend and was thrilled that we could get free tanning - until a
female officer on the force noticed a camera in the wall while she was
getting her free tan on. I was interviewed by the state police but never
really found out if any punishment was doled out. The state police
confirmed that I had been taped on several occasions. I was never asked
to press charges. Why are people so messed up?
