wonder if this guy knows how lucky he was that some of the local (men that like men) didn't see him. or maybe they did and he don't remember that either.

yep. you can always tell what a man is packing, by his mouth. the more it runs, the less he has to be proud of.

Do you know who this person is? I know it has to be embarrassing to his family and girlfriend. I feel sorry for them. It is sad for anyone to act like that.

First off I don't know this person but yes I bet he is embarrassed but does that give y'all the right to make fun for real it's like y'all never did anything wrong plus you don't even know what really happened so what gives you the right to judge and for the officer that made this public should be ashamed cause we except our officer to protect and serve which obviously he didn't do here I'm not saying what this person did was right but I am saying he ain't the only one wrong!!!!!

From the story it sounds like he got drunk and some friends took his clothes to prank him.

Not really necessary to arrest the poor guy and saddle him with a criminal record for something like this.

In particular, note that he was not flashing little girls at the movie theatre, which would be a different issue.

What is the cost of this?

One approach would be to call the young man's parents to come pick him up. Costs nothing and he will surely learn his lesson and never hear the end of it from his family.

Another approach, the one chosen, is to arrest him, handcuff him, bring him in to the county jail, hold him, have a trial, set him up with a criminal record.

In that case, the taxpayers spend about $30,000 in processing, jailing and court costs, and you end up with a man with a sex offender prison record who will not be able to find employment and will have to be on food stamps and public assistance, at a lifetime cost of around $1 million to taxpayers.

Which one makes sense?

If you are a puritan religious fanatic who goes insane at the thought of seeing a woman's ankles, just like the radical muslims, then you choose the jail option.

If we are created in the image of God, how can the body be seen as indecent?
