What if it's just less serious domestic violence?

Those are just the novel ones that you hear about on the news. Consider what doesn't get reported.

The cops came out and hauled us in. I was bewildered, because I hadn't even seen him do it. We were both stumbling home drunk from the bar. But I used my limited Japanese and bowed profusely when I understood what my friend had done. I apologized for him, told the cops he was drunk, and promised to make sure he got home safe. The cops let us go with only a warning. I have no idea what happened to the woman, whether she was pissed off nothing happened or what.
Scared the **** out of me for some reason.

It's not illegal in England and Wales. There is a thing at the moment where a woman who got 'upskirted' is trying to get the law changed.

Cameras on mobile phones have been good for a lot of reasons but they've also been very bad.
