Another California Gem

Schwarzenegger Signs Bill Banning Sex with Corpses

I'm glad our legislature is focused on the issues....

After signing that bill I hope he was able to hang out with some friends, have some drinks, share a few laughs.

Well, when you have incidents like the one a few years ago where a male morgue worker and his girlfriend were caught on tape molesting the body of a little girl and could only be charged with desecrating a corpse and not with sexually molesting her, the law needed to be changed.

These seemingly unimportant or non-issue things go through our legistature on a daily basis but we only hear about the silly or sensational ones.

Gosh, well now you have one less vice to worry about the legality of.

Look, I'm with BAW on this one. Obviously this was a problem at some point in California. I mean, really, is this such a bad thing to have a law against? You'd want it, if it was your daughter's or father's or grandmother's dead body that was violated.

Still, though, is there ANY good argument about NOT having a law against the sexual violation of corpses? What kind of sicko would do this?

no, but if Ah-nold was more worried about health care there wouldn't be so many people dying and it wouldn't be such a problem.

Well, people are going to die, regardless of health care reforms.

I'm kind of upset that people are willing to shrug off the sexual abuse of corpses so readily. I'm not saying that Schwarzenegger doesn't have his problems, and honestly I know little about California politics, but are we really attacking the man because he signed a bill banning the sexual violation of dead bodies?

I think nbc was taking a dig at the work habits of the California legislature. They should look to our Republican-controlled Senate to see what kind of work is really important.

What seems odd is that we need another law on the books to address what would otherwise seem obvious. An entire set of the California Code fills a couple of book cases.

Yes, but as BAW mentioned, it apparently was NOT obvious.

Look, if you want to criticize tha CA legislature, surely they've proclaimed a Statewide Sweet Gherkin Week or something that you could make fun of. But this is pretty heavy stuff.
