Clothing Optional

by admin on February 22, 2010

I was in Chinatown yesterday & this guy was standing around worshiping the sun so I randomly started taking pix of him, next thing you know he takes off his shoes, socks, fast-forward ~ he strips down to the full monty, 40 degrees, wind kickin’ & proceeds to walk thru Chinatown.  What puzzles me is that the NYPD watched the whole unveiling while sitting in their unmarked car, got out, put  the guy against the vehicle & then stood around as he sauntered off.  He casually hopped over the fence & moseyed thru the park & headed south several blocks.  I didn’t have time to see the whole scenario pan out but I can’t understand why they didn’t put the pale fella in the car while they had him.  Throughout his stroll, half the people who encountered him laughed & the other half just kept walking.  One guy said with a thick accent, “Only in America. In my country, they would’ve shot him dead on the street.”  I got a lot more of this madness on film but since the poor guy is most likely pazzo, I won’t be publishing any full frontals or pix his face ~ Instead I’ll say a little prayer for his peace of mind & his cold behind.

The police probably didn’t care because technically it’s not illegal to be naked in most places in the United States. Naked people are often taken to jail for other reasons, some valid, many not. Nudity is not obscene.

I agree that nudity is not obscene but given his overall actions, this poor fella was not right in the head & a danger to himself. It was too cold to sport a birthday suit that day & I was concerned for his well being & I think the cops should have protected him sooner rather than later.
