    you can't pretend like it's a real situation?

    If my thread is stupid to you then you needn't reply. Just trying to get some opinions.

    My opinion is that, for reasons I have already explained, we are wasting our time trying to answer what-ifs.

    You don't. So, if you don't want stuff messed with, lock it up or leave your workspace blank. If they are not committing a crime or violating workplace rules, then your putting a camera up could expose you to both legal consequences and to workplace discipline. That would be just plain stupid.

    You can "maybe" their intentions all day long. Absent an admission on the person's part regarding their intent, or some manner of mind reading, what they have in their mind is going to be private and you cannot legally act on what you think someone might do.

    Sounds like you need to find a new place to work. If going to work is so stressful, and your environment so oppressive, then it is apparent that your camera idea would do no good anyway so it is not even worth considering.

    Start applying for new jobs on Monday.

    Good luck.
