Fire for What!? - 6/5/2012

Welcome to a very special (and creepy) edition of Fired for What!? Ordinarily, I feature three great termination stories from around the web . . . but I'm willing to make an exception for this case.

A Pennsylvania man has been arrested for using a hidden camera to spy on a co-worker. But wait, it gets worse:

[The female co-worker] noticed that a small hole had been drilled into a ceiling tile above her desk. Upon further investigation, the 32-year-old woman "observed a camera lens" had been positioned above her desk. In an interview with officers, the victim said that she had gone into her office "for the purpose of utilizing a breast pump to pump milk for her baby."

The report includes the probable cause affidavit.

When confronted by investigators, Bednarik handed over a Sony camcorder, which he later admitted placing above the woman's desk (after creating a small hole in the ceiling tile) . . . "for the purpose of sexual arousal and gratification."

Another report indicates that the man was terminated from his position. I would certainly hope so.
