    You likely have no one to protect from this, otherwise this would not be your position.

    Tell you what....if you get a girlfriend someday. let me know so I can take a couple pictures for the internet.

    We're talking about the Communistwealth of Massachusetts, where Criminals are not only the most popular citizens (see Whitey Bulger), but elected to most State and Federal offices. Making criminals out of these people (as they should be) would create too much competition for the criminals currently in power.

    I remember being someplace that had a similar walkway. I glanced up, saw that it might be possible to see up a dress or skirt. After that it was head and eyes straight ahead. I would have so embarassed to be seen looking up.

    One thing that sticks out to me is the issue of minors and how they can be exploited by this. A girl may look 21 but be 14 and that is sure as hell not legal. Going by a photo of under a skirt on a female, there is a chance that it might be a child and I have no tolerance for that.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Looking up and getting an accidental shot is completely different than scooting up underneath a lady's skirt to take a picture of her crotch and post it online under titles such as "crotch shots."

    As much as I'd like to disagree, I cannot. I'm really wanting to move out of Massachusetts. It's a horrible state to live in IMO.

    Did you know that in Rhode Island, up-skirt photos ARE illegal? Leave it to backwards-ass Massachusetts to screw things up.

    I agree. But if you stare up, looking for that 'accidental shot', then you have crossed a line. To me, taking am up-skirt picture crosses the line, even more. I am not sure about whether or not it should be illegal, but there is no doubt in my mind about the morality.

    Interesting slant on this, can always count on you for that.

    I'd say it is odd for so liberal and nanny state a place as Messichusettes that is doesn't have a better consent for photography law. Not sure just how a law to stop upskirt can be written as many times 'upskirt' is in plain view. Perhaps it needs to say something about the photographing of people's undergarments without written consent is illegal.

    As it stands now the law doesn't make upskirting illegal.

    Now I don't know how popular Whitey was, certainly feared, and every state has had their own Whitey. As for which state has the most criminals in office, I don't think any state has a lock on that title. Louisiana has had it's fair share, and the VP under Nixon, ol' arch-conservative, Spiro was run out of Blair House for political racketeering back as county commissioner and then Governor of Maryland.

    And damn sure making peepers criminals won't be competiting with politicians, they tend to show off their junk, not sneak pics of other people's privates...

    Well, I heard on the news this morning that the legislature is working on updating the laws to match technology, so I have a feeling there will be some new laws in MA regarding this type of thing.

    The whole controversy swirls around the fact that the way the law is worded, it does not cover this type of activity. However:

    District Attorney Dan Conley said prosecutors are hoping state lawmakers will change the wording of the statute by the end of this legislative session.

    "What we have is not that the Supreme Judicial Court is saying this is OK," Conley said. "The statutory language just didn't quite fit the conduct."

    In its ruling, the court said that other states, including New York and Florida, have passed laws specifically criminalizing upskirt photos, noting that women have an expectation of privacy under their clothing. Washington lawmakers closed a loophole in that state's voyeurism law a decade ago, after a similar ruling there.

    Conley added that this conduct has become more and more prevalent, and he urged riders to be alert.

    "This action is immoral and reprehensible; don't do it," he said.

    A LOT of people love Whitey Bulger.
