ugg outlet Hundreds of nude runners take to streets
“We wanted to do something before (the event) got out of hand,” said Police Chief Mark Beckner. “This was a good opportunity to enforce the law.”In past years, police haven’t had the staffing levels to ticket the runners, Beckner said, but this year the Halloween run fell on a Friday when a lot of officers were scheduled to work. Beckner likened streaking to speeding police can’t catch them all, but they do what they can. This year’s streakers were a diverse group young and old, who were costumed as vixens and nuns, ghosts and witches earlier in the night. “It’s a whole bunch of people taking off their clothes. You must have a trash bag for your clothes if you run, he told the crowd. And most important, don’t throw away your pumpkin this is Boulder, after all.”We are composting the pumpkins,” he yelled. “Await further instructions after the run.”Though police haven’t typically busted up the naked fun run, city officials did warn the public earlier this week that tickets weren’t out of the question.

The Boulder Police Department’s policy with respect to enforcement of public nudity laws is inconsistent to say the least. Make up your mind Chief Beckner. A day after a young woman was gang raped just off Arapahoe by four men, and an Asian American was forced at knifepoint to say “I love America”, Boulder police could find nothing better to do than look for nude runners. It will take a citizen movement to get City Council to tell the police department what crimes we really care about. Meanwhile a dozen Halloween revelers are facing possible lifetime sexual offender status for behavior that is legal on most federal lands (wherever there is no state or local control), and which had no intent whatever to be lewd.11/1/2008 2:16:00 AM
Boulder Police suck A$$. Their actions tonight were wrong and they will be punished. We as citizens gotta say enough to these bullies in uniform. We will not sit still and allow this to happen. Those fines given to the pumpkin runners will be thrown out of court.
