    Is this statue something that is sensitive to touch?? That is another question. Because you should be prosecuted for stuff like that (like paintings or certain sculptures).
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    Now, the picture is dumb. But if it's worthy of prosecution, then half of the musical artists I listen to would probably go to prison for producing visual works that would "outrage the sensibilities of persons likely to observe or discover the action": Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Ministry, Swans, Godflesh, Big Black, Marilyn Manson, you name it. This law could basically outlaw carte blanche a certain type of 'blasphemous' musical genre. It's dangerous and ought to be stricken from the books.

    Also, fundamentalist Christians are easily the most politically correct, 'sensitive' mass interest group in America. Holy ****, cry more.

    I wouldn't care if the organization on whose property the statue was pressed trespassing charges on the kid, though even then it'd be kind of petty to do over a picture. But this law is basically a "don't offend the religious sensibility of the majority" law.

    Also, it looks like it's possible that the law the teen was charged under was ruled unconstitutional in 2010:

    Say what you want in your own house, but don't come to our house and think we'll just let it go.
