In Massachusetts its not a crime to take “upskirt” shots of strangers!
A man who snapped secret pictures up women’s skirts on a Boston subway train – a practice known as upskirting – did not violate the state’s Peeping Tom law, Massachusetts’ top court said on Wednesday, pointing to a loophole in current legislation.
…The ruling comes in the case of a man who was arrested by transit police in 2010 for using his cell phone to take pictures and video up women’s’ skirts on the subway and who fought to have the charges of voyeurism dismissed.
The law “does not apply to photographing… persons who are fully clothed and, in particular, does not reach the type of upskirting that the defendant is charged with attempting to accomplish on the MBTA,” it said.
The court said that, while women have a “reasonable expectation of privacy in not having a stranger take photographs up her skirt” the law “in its current form does not address it.”
I wonder if this asshole aided his photography by physically pulling the woman’s skirts up he’d still be OK. This is so foolish. Yes the woman are “Fully Clothed” but there is a certain amount of privacy afforded by the hanging skirt, and putting a camera under that skirt strikes me as a blatant violation…but not in Massachusetts!
Of course they’ll try to “fix” the law, and likely make it worse….
Next up from the Golden Boy of “Progressivism”:
The behind-the-scenes turbulence of U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson’s family life continued to spill into public view Wednesday as his attorneys worked to combat his wife’s recently revealed domestic-violence allegations.
The congressman’s lawyers revealed video of the domestic incident that played out at the Grayson home Saturday, which they said proved that Lolita Grayson committed an attack, not her husband.
“He was hoping that this matter would stay in the courts and outside of the press, but since horrendous accusations have been made against him … he believes that the truth must come out,” Grayson’s attorney Mark NeJame told reporters during a news conference in downtown Orlando.
Oh yeah its Republicans who are the ones who are anti-woman!
And last is more funny than anything else:
Grown ass “Progressive” man simply throwing a temper tantrum. Go him!
