YAY! I'm moving to Wilmington next month!

But he WILL observe just to make sure none of them need saving...

/sees the chief buy a camera with a zoom lens

Hmmm, last time I was at Topsail beach the people on the beach were not nubile 20 year old girls....more like 40 year old women.

Not in shape either, mind you.

*shudders*

First it was activist judges, and now activist police chiefs.

Heros, one and all.

He also promises not to arrest drunken young coeds in thongs.

"Not the breathalizer again!?"

Yeah, but will they detain them for questioning...

Rub oil on them, yes. Arrest them, no.

I used to go to Top Sail and its a nice quite place. Now that I dont go there the women are dropping there tops..........FIGURES!

Rachel Grant, a junior at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, said she wouldn't mind baring her chest if she could find a secluded spot on the beach

Anyone have a UNC student directory handy?

LOL, one of my favorite jokes
 
2005-05-20 07:47:15 PM  
If you take your top off and no one's around to see, is your chest really bared?
 
2005-05-20 07:49:38 PM  
I'm surprised there hasn't been a flurry of smug self-righteous pricks demanding to know why we want to sack pharmacists for not distributing birth control but won't fire cops for not doing their jobs.
 
2005-05-20 07:50:15 PM  
Repeat
 
2005-05-20 07:54:58 PM  
Will he at least clothe the fugly ones?
 
2005-05-20 08:06:15 PM  
It's tits, get over it.
 
2005-05-20 08:12:37 PM  
A man goes topless and it's legal, a woman goes topless it's illegal. Isn't that sexist?

once again another useless article without pics

Woohoo, I recently bought property in Hampstead...

This is a bonus..

Too far north. If it were Wrightsville Beach, a mere 3-miles from UNCW campus, it would rival the hotness of 10th and Ocean on South Beach. HOTTIE central.

Topsail? Meh.

Best use of the [image from img.fark.com too old to be available] tag ever.

Sweet. The in-laws have a place down there. Gotta go there a little more often this season

ManMan, rejoice! Or not.

At least relax.

Reports about the lack of a local law against topless sunbathing spread last week, and Smith increased his beach patrol in response.


Well, yeah. I'd increse my beach patrols as wello.
 
2005-05-20 09:49:31 PM  
Wow, two cops get hero tags in a row, coincidence? I think not.

/Fight the power.
 
2005-05-20 10:27:44 PM  
I'm getting a little Deja-Vu.

/plan to take it on walks in the evening after work

I've been to Myrtle Beach.
It's full or old, white wrinkly cheapskate retired types.
I DO NOT want to look at topless bathers there. UGH!

I could only dream. My family has property on Wrightsville beach, and most of my summer vacations are spent there. Hotty central indeed. I've been to topsail a few times, and my opinion is that of Super six-two...although hotties are there, it's more of a family/retirement beach than a beach getaway for a bunch of college people.

Ok, I found the bit about increased patrols to be interesting but I want to know who thought that there would a massive increase in topless women simply because it's legal. There should however be an exponential increase in men hoping to oggle topless women.

/pics?

Salese said one youth minister who's been taking groups to the beach for years told him he wouldn't return.

Gosh darn it.

It's a damn crime. More women should go topless.

/In N.C.
//Can I get a few farkettes in Durham to go topless?

Man. How much do you have to suck to be indignant at the *lack* of a law? As if there weren't enough laws already. If I ever get to the point in my life where I go "you know, there should be a law", remind me to end my life immediately.

I learned to surft at Topsail. Not a bad little beach. Might be time to head back down there and see what's new.....

What did he expect, people to be fully clothed, on a beach? He'll probably have a spat at people not showering in their swimsuits next.


Besides, the town has clarified laws on topless women, and reduced the beachs religious zealot population by one. Heroes all round by the sounds of it.
