This is completely symbolic of how screwed up we have become as a nation. Do we actually need laws, courts, etc. involved in determining whether there is anything wrong with taking photos up women's skirts? In times past a kick in the teeth and a mangled camera would have dealt with the question

So I presume "peeping" is allowed?
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

I suppose the law can now be interpreted such that an a$$ whipping administered to the perp for doing things like this is no longer considered assault? 

Plaintiff:  "Your honor, I didn't hit him, he ran into my fist."

Judge:  "Well, uh, yeah, uh the law doesn't apply in this case because the voyeur's face ran into the defendant's stationary fist."

Massachusetts is a very liberal state, as I remember.  You know, those liberals that are concerned about the safety of women? :3:

It won't matter much longer.

The speed this country's going, it won't be long before all women will be wearing pants or culottes.

Don't fool yourself. It will be hi-jabs and berkas. 

Won't the women and girly-men be surprised!

we need it because we're (supposed to be) a nation of laws.  and criminal punishment should only be inflicted within the strict letter of the law.  If Mass. law doesn't currently provide punishment for this conduct - which I agree is reprehensible - then the solution is for Mass. to enact a well-considered law that addresses the issue.

Not if the person being peeped on is all or partially nude.

nope. don't need a law for every possibility in society. that is how we got started down the rabbit hole and results in a completely nuetered and unable to think mass of people dependent on someone else.

Agree 100%.  A law can't be written for every single possible offense.  Next thing you know, we'll be discussing the meaning of the word "is".  Taking this case as an example, what does the plaintiff have to do, describe in detail what, for her, constitutes being fully clothed/partially nude?  Then, does she have to argue "well, your honor, I normally wear a slip under this dress but didn't that day.  Therefore, I was partially nude and you have to convict this pervert"?
