Loophole in Photography Law Vexes Lawyers

Such is the stupidity of the law in the US! No laws against being a pedophile, provided you do it in public. On the other hand, if someone could have got the guy to say "cock" on TV the FCC could have fined him half a million dollars.

Guardian Unlimited | World Latest | Loophole in Photography Law Vexes Lawyers: "RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Jeffrey Swisher was caught using a videocamera to peer up the skirts of teenagers at a mall, and law enforcement officials were eager to put him behind bars for a long time.

His punishment: 10 days in jail. A loophole in Virginia law meant prosecutors were only able to convict Swisher of disorderly conduct."
