    Me too. I'm sure something will be done. I'm still stunned that this couldn't be covered under some kind of law. Sure cell phones are new, but cameras sure aren't. I would have thought this would be covered under some kind of laws about voyeurism, like peeping toms!

    Agree, Sad that it wasn't covered.

    I really don't see what the difference is between doing this and peeping at someone. Women don't wear skirts with the idea that some perv is going to be looking up her skirt or taking pictures. So if it's not "illegal" does that mean I could get in trouble for kicking a guy right in his stupid face if he did this to me I wonder? Because that would more than likely happen.

    And what law do you suggest? Pornography? No nudity involved. Voyeurism? Nope. Same as before. Trespassing? Public domain. Assault? No bodily harm took place.

    The only argument is if you tried for some "public decency", but that's a slippery slope.

    What's the difference between this and taking a picture of someone in a state of undress? Just because they're wearing a skirt and in a public place? Their privacies are still being violated IMO.

    I cannot see a grand jury, or a prosecutor, filing charges against some woman who just did her best field goal kicker tryout effort on the face of some asshole who was trying to take a picture of her panties under her skirt

    Knowing our backward-ass laws, they probably would file charges against the woman. Don't forget, this is liberal Massachusetts.

    WHAT???? How can upskirt photo taking NOT be an invasion of privacy?????
    Proba bly because when such laws were written there were no digital cameras as small as we have them today. The law just needs to be evened out with technology.

    Depends on that "state". If it shows some sweater meat or snapper, that'd be illegal. Bra and panties, not so much.

    Or - did you want judges making laws? I thought you were against that, but I could be wrong.
    Taking pictures up women's dresses is ok? If you think it's ok please don't respond.
