Gaza Strip: Reuters news reports that the Islamist rulers of the Gaza Strip have ordered lingerie shops to display more modesty.  A week after banning women from smoking water pipes in public places, the Hamas run police force has told stores selling women’s underwear to remove scantily clad mannequins from their windows. Police spokesman Ayman Al-Batniji said, “These measures have stemmed from complaints and pressure by ordinary people.  They have to do with upholding our traditions.”

There you have it.  The people have spoken. No more scantily clad mannequins in Gaza!

Bronx, NY:  The New York Post reports: “You have the right to look ridiculous.”  This is a result of a Bronx judge who recently quashed a summons issued against Julio Martinez, a Bronx man, for wearing saggy pants.  The judge ruled that the Constitution leaves opportunity for people to be foolish if they so desire.  Judge Ruben Franco went on to say that Martinez may have offended the fashion police by exposing his underwear,  but his manner of dress did not deserve a ticket from the real police.

Brookfield, WI: An 18 year old young man sent a nude photo of himself to his girlfriend’s cellphone, not knowing she shared the device with her mother.  The mom saw the picture and called the police who charged the young man with disorderly conduct.

Lindberg had been the top cop in Uppsala, Sweden from 1997 to 2006.  His arrest shocked the nation’s police force.
