Many small towns have police blotters published in their local newspaper. I like it as it confers a certain amount of accountability due to the embarrassment of having your name mentioned and the concomitant shame of having to show your face in public.
One lady in Roswell,NM tried to walk out of store without paying for her own birthday cake and was arrested I believe, but the following report in the blotter of a man pleasuring himself in the public library is more than shocking for parents attempting to raise their children in this small south eastern NM town.
A man exposed himself to a 22 year old female doing her homework in the library. She informed a member of the library staff who called police, but the sexually immature self-stimulating perpetrator quickly exited before police arrived.
The library has grainy video of the man standing behind the woman in the act of self-stimulation while exposing himself. I believe there are ways to enhance the bad video so that they can identify perpetrator.
At least the man is not a serial killer and did no real harm, but how inferior he must feel to not just ask the girl out on a date so he can get the real thing. Everybody needs sexual release, but to risk getting caught doing something like this in public place speaks to the desperation and despair this poor soul must feel! Honest folks have to admit that masturbation is a normal, but very private practice. The guy in the library has to understand how offensive and repulsive his act was to library patrons.
