    Sounds like a sensible ruling. I applaud the judge and his common sense.

    Anything is legal in public, so long as you do it so no one can see you doing it...

    To summarize: It is legal if no one sees you do it.
    Isn`t EVERYTHING legal if no one sees you do it?

    Yes, everything is legal unless someone sees you do it.

    "Retired detective Joseph Tesoriere was busted"

    and was not convicted...I`m so shocked (sarcasm)

    "Isn`t EVERYTHING legal if no one sees you do it?"

    if you don`t have morals...but yes, legally if you`re not caught, even murder is legal.

    "Yes, everything is legal unless someone sees you do it."

    Therefore, everything is illegal if someone sees you do it! Oh sh*t! Everyone! Hide somewhere where you can never be found! Your very lives depend on it!!

    So let me get this straight as a New Yorker...

    Before this law, if I masturbated and no one saw me I got away with it, and if someone saw me it was illegal.

    NOW if I masturbate and no one sees me I get away with it. But if someone sees me, then it`s illegal? Wow what a BIG change!!!!!

    "So let me get this straight as a New Yorker..."
    The judge examined the exact wording of the law and discounted the fact that the act occurred in a public park. If you ever hear of a reversal, "public facilities" will probably be part of the next judge`s 20-or-so pages of ruling.

    It`s not that he wasn`t seen. It`s that he made several signature actions to "prevent being seen by anyone other than consenting parties."
    The prosecution could simply have brought up "children playing hide-and-seek."

    But if you take the judges interpretation strictly, it`s hard to even go after a person for playing pocket pool on a crowded train.

    Yes those goo`s on your park bench ain`t melted vanilla ice cream! Jesus Holy Toledo every time I read something about NYC it just gets stranger and stranger. No wonder my neighbors from NYC (native) left and came here. They say NYC sucks more and more.

    I was in the hairdressers yesterday and I was just thinking... After they put the big cloak over you, you could so easily whack one out under there without anyone noticing. Just sayin`

    The problem with this for me is that the guy was cleared of any wrongdoing and yet is still named in public and will forever be known as that guy who wanked in public.

    KingdomCome: In some European countries there are laws prohibiting this exposure of personal information to secure the anonymity of those not found guilty in court. I`m sure there are similar laws in USA but they didn`t work this time.

    ... makes sense to me. If no one sees it, no one can be offended.
