Man arrested for making coffee, while naked, in his home....  What is the world coming to?

I have to admit to occasionally being guilty of this very offense.....

He was trying to attract attention?  Not what I heard, she was peering in his window!  She should be charged with trespassing, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  One story I heard was that she was walking the child to the school bus - at 5:30 am??  

Here is a more complete article on it

Edited to fix link - posting in a hurry!!

They should come around my house in the mornings, Hubby very often walks around with nothing on. He intends to go into the shower, but gets distracted by phone calls or other things.

Where I come from - you avert your eyes if confronted by something that visually challenges your modesty or theirs. If flashed, look away - very simple.

Well at least lude acts have gotten all the way from the  bedroom to the picture window.  Used to be that anything beyond the missionary position was against the law even if done between husband and wife in their own habitat.  But really, what ever happened to the privacy of one's own home?

Guess I would also be guilty.  There is no reason for anyone to be near my house & there are trees all around. I figure if someone wants to peek in here they deserve to be traumatized! evil  What was that woman doing skulking around his yard @ 5:30 anyways?  Most likely if she had just walked on instead of making a big deal the kid wouldn't even have noticed. Brian apparently what anyone does is everyone elses business now adays, specially if they can get attention for it!  Speaking of the law things, there are some pretty bizarre laws on the books!

Well, I have to admit that I tried it too once. 

But only once...after spending an hour later that day cleaning the vomit off of the sidewalk in front of the house I decided it wasn't worth it...

even if i were running around naked, the .45 would be within reach.  if i saw someone looking in my window, it would not be my naked body that they saw, it would be the business end of a weapon.  i probably wouldn't shoot them just because i hate having to replace windows.....   are there not laws against trespassing and peeping in windows?

mmm, i haven't seen one description of this story where anyone claimed that he was not in full view of the street, or that he claimed he could not be seen from the street. 

if he was making coffee (and by his own description, it was "dark" out), and had the light on inside with no shade on the window, if full view of the street or sidewalk, then, i think this qualifies as indecent exposure (although if it were the first time there was any kind of complaint, i'd give a warning).

not that police officers are always reasonable, but they aparantly had some reason to believe it was intentional.

Thanks for that post deknow...I was thinking how absurd this was until I saw it from a "law" perspective!

I guess I'm in the camp who thinks this is crazy. When I walk down a street, the last thing that occurs to me is to be looking in peoples' windows. If the story is accurate in the accounts I have read, the woman had no business cutting across his yard, and if she was close enough to notice he was naked, then she was probably trespassing. We are living in a society of people who are looking for an opportunity to be offended.

Not only that, Dragonfly, but we live in a society that spends way too much time minding everyone else's business instead of minding their own.

my next door neighbor told us that her mother used to take her on peeping tours of the neighborhood (what kind of messed up...?)
She's still unbearably nosy and seems to think it's normal - at least my instincts prevailed when she pestered us to put a 'neighbor gate' in
it seemed homey and sweet at first blush - but it gnawed at me and didn't seem a good idea and I couldn't place the reason - until we had them over for dinner and she commented that she was wondering why she saw blue (curtains) instead of inside the kitchen.   ninja I'm not up to no-good, but invasive nosiness really irritates me.

With all you guys running around naked making coffee, if I am ever invited over, how about I just stop at the Starbucks?

Starbucks is why I brew my own.....  that stuff has been burned or has nasty flavoring added.
