There’s a new sport in town and perverts of Massachusetts are rejoicing today!.The law is apparently on their side when it comes to taking photos up the skirts of unsuspecting women in public.They can go ahead and slip their cameras underneath the table in a bar or restaurant and shoot away to their dark little heart’s content.
Good reason to throw away your dresses ladies. Pants are a necessity now, and not just because of the weather.
Massachusettss highest court ruled yesterday that it’s not illegal to photograph underneath a person’s clothing without their consent, as long as they are not “partially nude.” See, if you for some reason were half naked in public, then photographing you would completely violate your privacy. But since you’re fully clothed, that deranged sicko can’t help if his camera is pointing upwards to your nether region, since it’s technically covered up.
“A female passenger on a MBTA trolley who is wearing a skirt, dress, or the like covering these parts of her body is not a person who is ‘partially nude,’ no matter what is or is not underneath the skirt by way of underwear or other clothing,” wrote Justice Margot Abbotsford, who has probably never had a photo of what’s underneath that judicial robe taken of her.
The ruling came from a “Peeping Tom case’ involving a 32-year-old man who had multiple complaints filed against him from female passengers who had their photo taken by him on the subway. A sting operation from local authorities showed that Robertson took an upskirt photo of a female officer and he was consequently arrested and charged with two counts of attempting to secretly photograph a person in a state of partial nudity.
So, the next time you’re in Massachusetts, ladies might I advise you to wear pants? And all you peeping toms, now’s your chance to head out to Massachusetts. Forget mirrors on the shoes, you can just do whatever you want there!
As is often the case, we humans find a way to take a technical gift and subvert it to the gag level. Look at the internet which is a virtual library of information available at our fingertips 24 hours a day.. It didn’t take hackers and pornographers long to figure out how to ply their trade make the whole system unsafe.
