nudity pays a price

Stephen Gough has spent most of the past eight years in jail
The so-called naked rambler Stephen Gough has lost his case at the European Court after claiming he suffered repression over his nudity.
Mr Gough complained about his repeated convictions and imprisonment.
Since 2003 he has been arrested dozens of times in Scotland and England for being naked in public.
He was convicted a number of times for breach of the peace, with his sentences increased with each offence and was often rearrested as he left prison.
Between May 2006 and October 2012 he enjoyed a total of seven days' liberty and spent most of his detention in segregation because he refused to wear clothes.

  1. Curious that this compares so negatively against the real crimes with victims who lost lives or possessions. His "victims" actually were given something, a moment of moral indignation. lol
