Charlotte Man Who Stands in Doorway Naked Has Neighbors Fed Up
A Charlotte, North Carolina man has his neighbors fed up after standing in the doorway of house naked every week for the last 10 years.
WBTV in North Carolina reports that neighbors say the man opens the door to his house in nothing but a smile, sometimes talking on a cell phone. The news report, which you can watch in the player above, goes on to say that even though neighbors have called the police several times, there is nothing they can do about it.
According to North Carolina law, a person can only be charged with indecent exposure if they "willfully expose the private parts of his or her person in any public place and in the presence of any other person or persons."
So, while the guy is not doing anything unlawful, parents are still understandably concerned that children are seeing this man expose himself.
I was curious as to what would happen if someone in Texas did this. So, I contacted the Abilene Police Department, and was told that if someone is showing any part of their genital region, regardless if he/she is on private property or not, it is considered disorderly conduct, a Class C misdemeanor.
So, what are your thoughts on this? Should the man be punished for exposing himself? Or, should he be left alone to bask in his nakedness in his own home?
