Oh, believe me if there's a cougar in the room, she somehow spots me from a mile away...

Yes. You made that very clear from your enlightened post.

Now I've had them removed from the bar, but never did I feel like they deserve jail time. The one instance that the state filed charges was a woman who felt like it was OK to reach her hand down my jeans while I was playing a show. She was immediately taken off stage and cops were called. She paid a fine.
Jesus.

I think this story is absolutely disgusting, and I think this guy should be prosecuted. At the same time, let's not make blanket assumptions here. Not all men (or even most men) are harassers, nor are most men boors with no social skills or common sense.

That's why I think that it doesn't help to simply put him in jail. That's not normal, sane beaviour. What does jail help? He will be locked up for a while, get released and then do the same. Or even worse. That should be addressed properly, and jail doesn't address this properly, but psychiatry.

Surely the same excuse could be said about murders and rapists though, those are not actions of sane folk either.

Excuse?

That's not an excuse. And every murder and rapist gets an assessment on his sanity and whether he is better be put in prison, because he was fully sane when he committed the deed, or rather be put in a psychiatry. Not every murder or rapist is insane.

My point wasn't that "Oh this poor bastard should not have to go to jail for this", it was that jail will not prevent him from doing it again. Of course, psychiatry will give no certainty that it will prevent anything. But the chances are greater, as this is not normal behaviour.

You could say you would have to be insane to commit a murder or rape.

I apologise, excuse was a bad word to use.

Of course every murder is somehow derailed.
But some know full well what they are doing, and for these there is no need not to be put in prison.

My vote would be to send him to jail AND get him psychiatric treatment.

Another fine citizen, this time in Oregon:

Quote:
A man accused of what Clackamas County sheriffs called a “repulsive” act at a local Target store was cited and released, authorities said.

Deputies say no sex crime charges apply. The outraged victim told KGW she believes what he did should count as a sex crime.

Faulk allegedly committed a lewd act in the aisle at the store on SE Sunnyside Road. Surveillance photos showed he somehow ejaculated on the 31-year-old victim, then left the store, according to investigators.

"I'm going to start looking into that and lobbying for different laws, because that is not the same thing as spitting on someone or any other type of bodily fluid. It's a sex crime and it's gotta be changed," the victim said.
The woman he ejaculated on had her 3-year-old daughter with her at the time.

Oh my God. There is something seriously wrong with some of these people and their complete lack of boundaries, to say the least. And yeah I consider both of these to be a sexual assault/sex crime, and not a laughing matter. It's outrageous that that ^ is not considered a sex crime.

Somehow? It's caught on tape and no one knows how this happened? How do you secretly masturbate in a store aisle?
