In California, Judge Says Only Men Can Be Flashers


In one of the most asinine rulings to come across in a long time, a California judge has ruled that a woman flashing a 14 year old boy has not commited a crime. He claims according to the law, only males can be convicted of exposing oneself to others.

Superior Court Judge Robert W. Armstrong said earlier in the week that the law only mentions someone who “exposes his person.”
“It’s gender specific,” Armstrong said.
He dismissed a misdemeanor charge against Alexis Luz Garcia, 40, of Corona, who was cited in May after parents of a neighbor boy said she showed him full-frontal nudity as he played basketball.  via ABC News

Fortunately, the District Attorney is going to appeal the ruling.

      I would have to see the evidence to come to my own conclusion.

      Now we have the “flasheress”
      Or should it be the “flasherperson” to make it sort of pc?

      These judges that make these stupid decisions should be taken off the bench. They let female teachers RAPE their students and do NOT get any jail time. It is time to put a STOP to this.

      This is unfair, I should be able to streak
      and get my name in the paper. Men have all
      the fun

      The serious side to this is that our judges think that
      they are sitting on their benches to simply enforce our
      laws. They don’t want to take the time to interpret the
      law using their own common sense.

      The evidence was probably presented with this female
      gender twist and the judge had to agree, because he
      didn’t want to take the time to do the paperwork
      necessary to rewrite it; to catch it up with our
      modern times.

      Now women have the RIGHT to be sexual predators, as
      well as their gender counterparts…
      and get away with it!!!!

      The world HAS gone awry.

      And to think someone told me it was like sticking
      a marshmallow inside a piggy bank.??!?!?!?!?!?!?!

      Have a nice weekend!!!!!

      So lets get this straight…..

      A priest can fondle Rep Foley, but thats not sex and we should let bygones, be bygones

      Michael Jackson can have little boys in his bed and show them porn but thats does not make him predator

      Ted Kenneddy can leave a drowning woman to well, drown and he is now iconic in Massachesettes,

      Joran and his buddies can take a women out never to be heard from again and that’s okay and NOW>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      a judge says woman cannot flash……….
