everybody loves devil girls

Buy a COOP sticker, go to jail:

"Stickers on a Clovis man's car portray cartoon images of bare-breasted female devils in sexually compromising positions. And the images have caught the attention of Clovis police. Officials have charged 31-year-old Dean Young, the owner of a yellow Ford Focus displaying the images, with distribution of sexually oriented materials to minors. The charge is a misdemeanor carrying a maximum punishment of 364 days in jail and $1,000 fine."

    (I had to look this up_ Clovis isn in New Mexico.

    I shudder to think what would happen if we prosecuted people based on their bumper stickers. Or Jesus and or Darwin fish.

    Would attaching a Jesus fish to a school bus constitute a "separation of church and state" crisis on the level of school prayer?

    • vample says:

      The issue is the sex part, not the devil part.

      So Jesus, Darwin or Buddha fish for that matter are not exacly endangered.

      Jesus fish on a public school bus would probably be an issue. But then things like 'under god' in the pledge and 'In God We Trust' on our money have been fine so far.

      And how does this apply to people watching porn on their in car dvd players?
      Or just sitting in the park folding out a copy of a playboy centerfold?
      Did a minor have to actually see the graphic, or can they nab someone just because its visable from public place?

        Last time I was in Singapore, the taxi-van driver played some crappy porn, but when we were stopped at a red light and another van pulled up, he turned it off, cause he said he would get a ticket.

    So are they going to go after those girls on mudflaps now?

    • kingfox says:

      When state prosecutor Chris Chandler first saw the case, he had concerns too.

      Then he saw the images.

      "Once you look at the picture it obviously depicts a sexual act. That's far beyond what is depicted on the mudflaps truckers have," Chandler said.

        In one of those amazing coincidences, the very next link I clicked on after reading this post had an interesting advertisement.

        Is sucking the tip of a tail a sexual act? Is it any more of a sexual act than, say, licking a finger or kissing on the lips? I would say not, but you ape-descended life-forms will just have to take my word for that.

        But more to the point, what does having a (possibly) lewd sticker on your car have to do with distribution of sexually oriented materials to minors? Surely Clovis has more relevant laws that apply to displaying unwholesome material publicly? It rather looks as though dragging minors into it is just a vindictive choice to set the guy up as a pedophile, so that a) there'll be a greater chance of conviction as the jury's mind is turned by the prosecutor against the supposed "pedophile", b) there'll be a custodial sentence, because no judge is going to let a pedophile off with just a fine, and c) after the guy arrives in prison, he'll get a shiv from some self-righteous con looking to enhance his rep by offing a kiddie-fiddler.

    as I'm sure you've read, at least we now know showing porn to kids isn't as bad as infringing copyrights.

    The ACLU probably shouldn't touch this one.

    I can really imagine the throngs of young boys running behind the guy's car masturbating furiously would be some sort of saftey hazard.

    I've been to Clovis. I gotta say I'm not terribly surprised. Heavy Spanish Catholic influence + not much to do == dangerously bored morality. It's not exactly the bible belt, but it's the sort of place where you can get pulled over for a mohawk.

    • valdelane says:

      I LIVED in Clovis from about '73 to '81. It was horribly conservative and the high school was run like a prison. I escaped to the SF bay area the minute I graduated.

      • HAAAHAHAHA! You escaped! Congratulations. I live here now. And it's absolutely horrifying for me to admit that. I feel so bad for this poor guy. Let's put a big friggin' bulls-eye on his car, on his ass, his job, everything. Even if the case gets laughed out of court, can you imagine the kinds of hell he's going to catch in this place? It's ridiculous. Clovis will now be known as that place where the dude got busted for the kinky stickers on his car. Oh joy.

    The album cover (uncensored version) for the Lords of Acid album Voodoo U:


    I highly recommend the music on this album also, BTW.

    He's not in trouble for buying it. He's in trouble for displaying it publicly.
