Give Me a Break (Updated) 3

Update: Bill points out that this took place in Easton, Md., not Easton, Pa. I have been to Easton, Md.

He’s a guy, for heaven’s sake.

For the third time in five years, Easton, Pennsylvania police have ticketed someone for going topless in public. 18-year old Sean Cephus was cited June 4 when police say he was spotted in town without a shirt. He was also cited for failing to obey a lawful order to stop for police, on, in other words, he ran.

A 1974 town ordinance forbids anyone from going topless in public buildings or on public streets and sidewalks with penalties of fines up to $100 and up to 10 days in jail.

I’ve never visited Easton, though it’s not all that far from here.

And I never will. I’ll take my tourist dollars somewhere else, thank you. Maybe Bensalem.

    It would be helpful if the original blogger got the basic facts correct.  The incident took place in   Easton, Maryland – not Easton, PA. If you knew anything about Easton, MD and its police department, you’d understand.

    In Frank’s defense, there are plenty of men who ought not to be going topless in any Easton.

    Next issue some of you regulation-crazed liberals need to tackle is fat men in Speedos.

    Or heavy ANYONE in spandex. (The thong should go the same way of the speedo, though. Butt floss is disgusting.)
