abmoraz: DemDave: All it would take is one person in the crowd (or even someone after the fact hearing about what went on) to say to a campus officer, "Hey, isn't it illegal to go around in public with your genitals exposed?"

Weaver95: I don't necessarily agree with how they went about their protests but the church shouldn't have been able to have criminal charges brought against them either.


All it would take is one person in the crowd (or even someone after the fact hearing about what went on) to say to a campus officer, "Hey, isn't it illegal to go around in public with your genitals exposed?"

And the officer would pretty much be forced to investigate or face scrutiny for not doing his job. And since the kids were clearly going around without any pants on in front of a bunch of witnesses in clear violation fo the law, the campus police would be forced to present the facts to the district attorney. And then the district attorney couldn't very well just not file  charges when the criminal offense was so public.

My point: The church was just the first one to the punch to ask for an investation. If it wasn't them, then some other religious nutjob probably would have set off the chain reaction. An 80-hour community service plea seems like a win-win in this situation.

It was Ms. O'Connor's costume that attracted the attention of the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh. Bishop David A. Zubik called her outfit offensive and asked Carnegie Mellon to investigate.

Sorry, we have a policy of ignoring any Catholic hierarchy complaint of offensiveness on the grounds of gross hypocrisy
