    Re: Should this man have been arrested for being naked in his kitchen?

    I personally don't have a problem with nudity and I don't find it shocking. It's unfortunate that most people do not have a mature perspective of what it means to be human, but it is what it is.

    In this case law enforcement over reacted, but there is a general point. As long as the public is being babied when it comes to indecent exposure, people should have the right to walk anywhere in public without being exposed to another person's nakedness if they don't want to be. She cut through his property, yeah, but that's a separate issue from the fact that she saw a naked man. He could have had his drapes closed.

    I walk around my house nude too but I always close the drapes for the very reason that I wouldn't want a random person peeping at me.

    I would really love to know more about the woman who made the phone call. I mean, the cops themselves didn't see the nudity, so we have no idea what really happened apart from her word. Who actually calls the police at 5am over something like that? Smells fishy to me.

    That's the point though, she was not in public, she was tresspassing on his property.
    If he could be seen from the street, ok there might be an issue there. But if you had to be tresspassing to see him, then ****... you might as well arrest someone for being nude in the tub, after all if someone broke into their house they might see them nude.

    Now there's a good point. Why do I suspect she had a grudge against this man and was snooping?

    There's this apocryphal story about a little old lady who called the cops. "Officer, those people next door are always parading around in the nude! Something should be done!"
    Cop: "Okay, Lady, you show me where you saw them, and if I can see them too I'll arrest 'em."
    The little old lady leads him outside, through a gap into the hedge into the neighbor's yard, and up to a closed window. "Right here, Officer!"
    Cop: "I don't see nothin'."
    Lady: "You have to stand on this block and look through the hole in the blinds..."

    The woman should be given a warning possibly trespassing.
    I have no clue why someone should be arrested for nudity in their own home.
    This getting more ridiculous, I just watched the video. Why the hell was she out at 5 am with her kid? Why would you cut across someone's lawn? People tend to avoid that in the day, let alone at 5 am.

She called the police and 5 cops barged in his house and found him in his bedroom and arrested him. He's facing charges for indecent exposure.
    The only person who should have been arrested is the woman for trespassing. She is going to trespass and then have the audacity to call the cops because she saw a naked man while trespassing.WTF were those cops thinking?

    The cops should be taught how to think...yes, I know this cannot be taught.
    The 5 cops should be laid off, if they have nothing better to do.
    The woman should be given a warning for trespassing.
    This whole thing is an absurdity; maybe its just a test or a survey of sorts??

    Considering the audacity of the woman she should be fined.Screw a warning should be something given if the cops were the ones who caught the woman in the process of trespassing. The fact she called the cops to report something she seen someone do in their privacy of their home while she was in the process of trespassing is deserving of a ticket. The guy should fight the charges or fines and sue the woman.

    She does have an extreme amount of nerve to do this. It's absolutely beyond absurd. It's akin to the burgler who gets injured while burglerizing a house, so he sues.

    Re: Should this man have been arrested for being naked in his kitchen?

    I wanted to be try and devil’s advocate this fully since everyone is disagreeing but I just can’t do it.

    What I will say is I understand the need for the laws a bit. Yes, we’re a bit uppity about Nudity but the fact of the matter is the majority of Americans do find being exposed to naked people when not expected it is offensive and for parents, harmful to their children, and fine, so be it. I have no issue with public decency laws in regards to being naked in public. Likewise, I don’t mind laws in regards to it in your house.

    However, the intent of the law and reason needs to factor in.

    If a person has a large bay window facing the sidewalk and routinely does his afternoon exercises in the buff right around the time kids are getting off the school bus near his house, and multiple people report this to the cops, I’d have no problem with something being done. Yes, its your house, but doing naked jumping jacks so your junk is flying all around directly in front of a window that’s clearly visible from the public is a no go.

    HOWEVER, if there’s no reasonable evidence to believe that you’re doing this on purpose (directly facing public, no use of blinds or curtains, repeated action after complaints, middle of the night, etc) and it’s something innocent like rolling out of bed naked and grilling up a 3 AM snack in your kitchen whose window isn’t visible from public views then in no way should anything be done.

    There’s got to be some common sense here. This is guy is not the same as a guy standing at his window that’s visible from the sidewalk pleasuring himself with the blinds fully pulled back.

    good point. i personally know of a situation where what you described happened. a convicted flasher stood in a window and exposed himself to boys coming home form school. he was arrested and convicted yet again.
