I want to film my neighbor's backyard because of their rock throwing kid

We've had a lot of damage done from rocks being thrown and the police say we have no evidence. So I am thinking of setting up a camera to film their backyard could I get in legal trouble myself

Is It Normal?

  • Most surveillance equipment overlook other properties. So long as you are not zoomed in on a bedroom window, you should be good. You maybe able to get away with a dummy camera as well. The mere fact that he may know you are now watching could be enough of a deterrent.

  • I 100% get your point. But everyone could be from different countries/states here so maybe double check?

  • It sounds legal and alright.

  • Pick up the rocks, take them to the kid’s house and hurl them at his parents until they promise to pay for all of the damage.

      • I am. My intellect is as vast as the sky and as deep as the oceans. I am the shining beacon of reason amongst the stormy sea of illogicality. I am perfection in human form.

  • Take the parents to court when you get evidence. If the kid is old enough get the parents to force their kid to pay for it.

  • Normal to want to do it, but maybe not illegal. Why not ask the police you've already spoken to if it's legal?

  • I think this is legal as long as you're covering mostly your own garden, but you'd need to check. Our neighbours back in the UK had a security cam fitted that caught a bit of our back garden. I didn't investigate whether or not it was legal because we were friends and I liked the free security, but they had a proper legit company fit everything and they knew it caught our garden and seemed to think that it was fine.
