Police Tase Naked Marathon Runner

May 3, 2011 at 2:27 am by  

Cincinnati, OH — Brett Henderson, 35, was tazed by disgruntled officers in downtown Cincinnati Sunday after they apparently found his running the city’s marathon naked unamusing.

According to police, Henderson refused to exit the annual Flying Pig Marathon and get in a police car, running around an officer and continuing to run in the  race. Police said Henderson was then instructed by police to get in a car or he would be tased. Henderson kept on running and, as promised, an officer tased him.

“At one point, the policeman charged me and told me to stop running or he was going to tase me, and I could sense his aggression and rage and I thought the police were going to manhandle me,” said Henderson. “The metal arrows of the taser were shot into me and electrocuted me, and I went into convulsions on the ground. When I finally came to, the policemen were standing around laughing at me. They put me in the squad car and took me to jail, where I spent four hours.”

Henderson says he suffered burn injuries from the taser.

Both Henderson and his mother (!) said Monday that he had borrowed a pair of running shorts from his father, but they kept slipping down as he ran. “I looked but couldn’t find a drawstring … I kept fighting and pulling on them, and then the elastic gave way so I let them drop,” said Henderson.

“This is something that happens and is tolerated in the running culture, along with runners who sometimes (urinate) or defecate during a  race. Shouldn’t that be considered indecent exposure, too, if what I did was indecent? In fact, running naked was encouraged in a marathon I ran in San Francisco, so I don’t know why this was such a big deal.”

Henderson was charged with public indecency and obstructing official business. He pleaded not guilty Monday morning, and a trial date was set for May 13.

So…  Dedicated or pervy? What say ye?

  • He’s talking about the Bay to Breakers Marathon, which is run by people in costumes AND naked people.

    I think it’s fine. I have no probs with people who want to be naked in public (and I don’t think it should be a crime). It’s not corruptive towards young minds. If anything, it gives them a good laugh.

    Manhandle, LOL

    I don’t want to see ANYONE running naked. It’s not a good look.

    Plus, it seems that the only people willing to get naked at the drop of a hat, are people who
    need to keep their clothes on at all times!

  • Anonymous

    So…I take it that your sensibilities were offended when Janet Jackson “accidentally” showed her nipple?

    It may not be a good look, but nudity isn’t something to shit bricks over. It’s just a body. We’re all bodies. We don’t all look the same, but good for those who are comfortable enough to not give a shit about what people think of their naked bodies.

  • pikeman

    Alright, I’m going to have to think about this for a second…..

    Damn, Mr. House, you have converted me over to a more open minded way of thinking but I don’t know.

    (Looks at photo) …… (Looks at photo and pictures this guy running down the street, naked) Huuummm….I think he deserved a good tasering, personally.

    HE THOUGHT THE POLICE WERE GOING TO MANHANDLE HIM!!!! HA HA HA HA HA.

    Alright Kniption, I think if I kiss anyones ass, it’s gonna be yours!

    THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!

    I agree with you on all accounts but one. I could definitely go for a hot chick running naked down the street. Let’s not get into that.

    This guy though???

    OK, I’ll get the big lecture from John House for being close minded. But who wants to see this creepy, past middle aged dudes junk flopping around as he gayly strides down the street in the city. Really. I mean, that’s gonna scare people away from the parade, gay or not.

    Like they say in the Flintstones. “Let’s have a gay old time!” Nothing against gays, but this is ultragay.

  • Parrot Toes

    I knew about the urination and defecation thing. As gross as that is to me personally, running naked because of faulty clothing/clothing malfunction isn’t that big of a deal. I say let the guy off.

    Really, I would much rather see a guy who’s decently fit enough to run a marathon naked than to step in the crap of a runner who couldn’t hold it (or be near one).

    Side note, my morbidly curious side wonders if an unrestricted penis flails around or stiffens (I guess it depends on the current which happens) when someone is stunned like the rest of the body does. 😛

    Dedicated to being pervy. If he was just a dedicated runner he would have had his own running shorts. And since he brought up running naked in San Francisco, it suggests running naked is a passion of his. Tasing seems excessive. I guess the cops didn’t want to grab him and get a handful of his dangly bits by accident.

    Bingo. Like obese people for example. I hate when I see one, especially a woman, wearing too tight, sexy clothes. It’s gross to me. BUT, I have to admire them for feeling comfortable enough with themselves to do so.

  • Parrot Toes

    He may not have a beautiful face, but if he’s running in a marathon, his body can’t be all that bad. I would take that any day over seeing some fat guy in shorts.

    Well, that’s why we have certain laws in place so that people who don’t want to see naked people running down the street don’t have to.

    I have no problems with nude beaches or nudist camps.

    You can do anything you want as long as I don’t have to look at it when I’m minding my
    own business.

    P.S. I don’t **** bricks about much of anything.

  • Parrot Toes

    “I could definitely go for a hot chick running naked down the street. Let’s not get into that.”

    You can’t have that without taking away the free rights of the people that you deem unattractive or the opposite sex. There can’t be one set of rules for the beautiful people and another condemning the rest. Besides, who gets to determine who’s “hot” and who’s not? Is there going to be a panel of judges to decide that for everyone?

  • pikeman

    Alright, I’ll give you that. They really let people run naked in marathons, though?

    Something about this guy creeps me out. Sorry, I’ll go to another story.

  • here’s a dose of tmi

    i pissed myself while running once – it was an emergency kind of run. the type of OH SHIT running. i was definitely exerting myself more than i normally would.

    i swear to god i didn’t know i was peeing until i felt it on my legs! it wasn’t pissing out of fear, as i was chasing after someone and i didn’t even have to fucking pee! i stopped and was like WTF I’M PISSING!? i couldn’t even control it – literally no fucking warning at all.

    i wonder if it has something to do with loss of muscle control – do all runners experience that or only noobs running in random situations – or is it because they don’t have the time…

    time to for some youtube and google images!

  • Parrot Toes

    I used to feel the same way as you. Now that I’m older, and hopefully wiser, I’ve come to realize that it was more my person insecurities that dictated that feeling.

    The human body is such a basic natural thing. It isn’t something that should be censored. I’m not saying that people running down the street naked or people flashing the naughty bits should be allowed anywhere at anytime, I just think that our reaction to it seems to be over the top most times.

    I truly believe that this is why there are so many problems with porn addiction and perverts peeping and spying on people and other things. The human body had been so inaccessible for so long, that now there is an over abundance of it, people go crazy with it and don’t know how to moderate. I’m not talking rapists, flashers, pedophiles and such though, that’s just criminal and major mental dysfunction.

  • Parrot Toes

    I think it’s mostly the time issue, but loss of muscle control probably plays a big part too, especially for the urinating.

    I peed myself when I was about 12 years old. I was delivering my papers, it was polar-bears-were-even-frozen-the-ground cold out and I was running home trying to make it. I didn’t. I’m not sure if it was the running or not. I suspect the cold made every muscle in my body tighten up in a effort to keep warm except the one that I needed to at that moment.

    Fail bladder, fail. (Or whatever muscle that is that allows you to hold your pee. I’m pretty sure a bladder isn’t a muscle.)

  • OMG, that’s one of my pet peeves. I’ve had people tell me they were electrocuted, and they really can’t get it through their heads that electrocuted = dead. -_-

  • tayantz

    I’m with ya there diffidently a perv. Wished there was some footage though, what I’m picturing is A1 fu#*ink hilarious the tasing would just top it.

  • Anonymous

    LOL

    He may not be gay, that’s the thing. ANYONE can run Bay to Breakers naked.

    Would you *really* go into histrionics to the actual happening of a naked guy walking down the street and crossing your path? Really?

    Here’s how I would react, and I’m speaking directly from experience: Once I realized that I was not crazy and the guy was actually naked and walking about in front of me, I would nod, grin and not be rude and stare. There are plenty of guys like the one in this article who go buck nekkid during Pride (never the hot ones or the ones you WANT to see naked, just guys like Skippy McRunnopants above). No one loses their shit. Hell, if people go naked like this, dude? You have every right to point and laugh at their wobbly bits…put ’em on display, lose your right to privacy and relief from criticism, I say.

    So what scares you about other naked men around you, pikeman? … 🙂

  • So so not true. I was at this marathon and saw quite a few obese people “running”… those are the ones that have the 7-10 hour finishing times, generally.

  • Cops tase anyone who do not comply with their orders… they used to beat them with clubs or shoot them in limbs… this guy got off lucky. If someone carrying a badge and wearing a hat tells you to do something, I suggest you follow their orders.

  • When the police ask you to do something reasonable. . .such as to not run naked in public .just comply. He deliberately blew off their commands and got what he asked for.

    Should those so inclined to thinking its the most natural thing in the world to run around with no clothing show up in court naked? I can see it now, lawyers, defendants, jusges, maybe even the bailiffs all coming in and doing their job au naturel, hell, we can even drag the defendants into court naked, would save on jail uniforms and pink undies…we wear clothing because we are not wild animals, when we clumb (or climbed out of the trees and caves we started outting leaves or peices of fur over our weewees to distinguish us from the ones that stayed in the jungles…. and if you do want to make some statement by being naked in public, please please please wax before doing so…

  • Parrot Toes

    No, no, no. Fat, not obese. I just watched most of the video that JohnHouse posted below. Yeah, there were some overweight people running, but not obese. Obese people can barely walk, let alone run.

  • Parrot Toes

    That’s just weird. I don’t think we have marathons like that here in Canada. Either that or we don’t call it a marathon, we call it a parade.

  • Parrot Toes

    No, you’re right. I personally would never go bare, but I don’t think the point of this is about that, it’s about how we over-react when we see someone naked. Like when I was younger and I watched a movie with some nudity in it (not porn). My reaction was to turn away and not look. Why? It’s just a body. It doesn’t mean that if I happen to see someone else naked that I should feel wrong. But that’s the problem. We ban ALL nakedness everywhere and make such a big deal about it that most of us do feel wrong when we see nudity in public places. It just creates closet porn junkies I think.

    No, I’m not advocating that people should be allowed to walk around naked in public if they want, but I do think that this guy here had a fair enough reason for it. I think the cops over-reacted. If they are going to get this guy for it, then they better be sure that at EVERY marathon in EVERY state, they get them ALL from now on. (Kinda like real life Pokemon. “Gotta catch ’em all – POKEMON!” Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

  • Anonymous

    OK, here’s my take on it. First, my feeling is that the cops went a little overboard. They got caught up in the situation and over-reacted a bit, I think. Second, there’s a touch of perv here, however small. I mean, as was said above, if he were a dedicated runner, he should have had his OWN running shorts that fit. So, bottom line: everyone involved is in the wrong, to an extent.

    Yes, the human body is a work of art, but in my house, hubby and I are a part of the private collection. No public shows here, by personal choice. To each his own, and all that.

    Now, for another thing, and this is just my own thought, but if I were a guy and were running, I’d be just a little uncomfortable to have the dangly bits dangling a bit more than they should. Just sayin’….

    Why the Hell not? If they had no clothing except for mandatory weaponry holsters/belts, you tell me: What about not having clothing would hinder the process of obtaining justice? Perhaps someone like you who has been conditioned to think that because we wear clothing that we’re somehow “better than wild animals” when you know damned well from reading about the crap that happens on this site that ISN’T true. If you weren’t so conditioned to think the way you thought and instead grew up with the normalcy of nakedness or half-nakedness, you wouldn’t think anything of nudity interfering with the judicial process.

    Tell me, then–you consider the near-naked and naked tribes in Africa to be “wild animals” then? What do you suppose keeps them “focused” on actual life instead of giggling at eachothers’ no-nos?

    Actually, according to my BMI I am just barely under the “obese” line… and I look better than most people I see running these days. I go to the gym 6 days a week, and watch everything I put in my mouth carefully. So, yeah, when someone says obese I know that they mean the huge enormous people who are made of twinkies and corn-dogs and their exercise consists of reaching for the next helping… but it still makes me cringe to hear people use it. :/

    I’m of two thoughts after reading this. He *knows* being in public naked is illegal; I don’t care WHAT friggin’ excuse he had, or what he thinks of it, it’s a LAW, follow the fucking thing. God; this is the same arena of reason as to why we need laws like wearing your seat belt, and using your headlights when you have to use your wipers. Common sense; if more people had it, there would be less laws being handed down.
    Aaaand… I can’t imagine a guy running around with their dangly bits flying every which way; that CAN’T be comfortable!! I’m a woman and it makes ME cringe to think of it! O.O

  • Parrot Toes

    Huh, then the line must be going down. I find that sad because it also means that the line has lowered for a healthy BMI that people in general are aiming towards. The unhealthy skinny that our kids think they need to be according to all the photo shopped ads they see in magazines.

  • “I thought the police were going to manhandle me,” said Henderson. “The metal arrows of the Taser were shot into me and electrocuted me, and I went into convulsions on the ground. When I finally came to, the policemen were standing around laughing at me.” Hmm … my thoughts on Mr. Henderson’s statement are running all over the place wild … kind of like his dick was when he was jogging. First off I have to agree with him on his first point – no straight guy wants anyone “manhandling them when they are naked. I have to agree with what Mr. Henderson states happened next also – although I am not understanding why it surprised him so much – the metal arrows of a Taser are meant to be shot into a person who disobeys a police command, and well … the electricity and convulsions are simply a by-product given at no additional charge to the perp.As for Mr. Henderson waking to find the policemen standing around laughing at him … it is a little known fact that a Taser hit can cause a hard on … so maybe … just maybe mind you … the police were not mucking a man dropped in his tracks by a well placed Taser shot, but instead mucking a man with an incredibly small penis.

  • As an ex-cross country runner I hate to tell you this – but I have never seen a runner in anything other than a marathon piss themselves … I have only heard of old people or ill people doing that.The marathon runners don’t even fit in the description of what happened to you as the ones I have heard of only pissed themselves so as to remain in the race.You probably should have went and got checked out be a doctor.

  • You know what I think ? I think this guy has a problem … I think he’s one of those guys who gets off on flashing his sausage at kids and anyone else that happens to be handy.As for the “borrowed a pair of running shorts from his father, but they kept slipping down as he ran. I looked but couldn’t find a drawstring … I kept fighting and pulling on them, and then the elastic gave way so I let them drop,” story – well as an ex-policeman of 5 years let me tell you about pervs like this guy … they will do a lot of planning … similar to child rapists and pedophiles …to have an excuse as to why the crime happened – if and when the plan goes foul and guess what … it is never their fault.His story reminds me of the convicted rapist who gives an interview and says ” I didn’t rape that 13 year old,she was asking for it … walking around in that short school uniform .. parading that hot ass in my face… if anybody got raped it was me,I’m innocent.”

  • Parrot Toes

    Seriously? You are comparing this guy to a rapist? That’s quite the leap. It’s not like you couldn’t have compared him to a flasher, right? That would have been more even level.

    I know this guy very well could have done this because of the thrill of it and because he’s a perv, but honestly, what proof do you have of that? Like you said, “as an ex-policeman of 5 years”, you should know then that people can’t be convicted without the proof. You are convicting this guy based on your feelings, not facts available in the article.

    So, why aren’t you a policeman anymore? It’s OK, you don’t really need to answer that.

    This dude knew he was gonna be tased that he didn’t wear any clothes so that people wouldn’t notice he’d peed himself when he got tased.

    I think he just tried to see if he could get away with it. Oh & btw, WTF? It’s normal for people that run to take shits while they run??

    Why tha hell would you run for so long that shit comes out? All of that stuff streaking your legs looking like some sort of shit zebra? what if you win?

    And in first place with a time of 2 hours & 13 minutes: BRETT HENDERSON, the BROWN zebra!

  • “Where in my post does it state that I think puredrivensnow is not very smart?”
    Since you asked Parrot Toes in your first sentence you stated “I used to feel the same way as you. Now that I’m older, and hopefully wiser” … To most people on this planet that statement insinuates a some what undeveloped intelligence on the part of the one you were addressing – who happened to be puredrivensnow. The problem isn’t with my comprehension, but with your comment. As for the contradiction I made it pretty clear how you contradicted yourself, but I will break it down further for you and I will do it without the lame ass insults you directed at me.2nd sentence of your original post you state that “The human body is such a basic natural thing. It isn’t something that should be censored. “Then with your next statement you basically state the exact opposite thing and indicate that the human body should be “censored” by saying: (“I’m not saying that people running down the street naked or people flashing the naughty bits should be allowed anywhere at anytime “).One last thing – take it anyway you want it – but I was not attempting to debate you …I simply read your posts and pointed out what I saw.Have a great day.

    LOL, Why do you think I left this discussion.

    You do have a point, if one person can run naked, then everyone should be able to. If this guy can’t run naked, then no one should be able to.

    I was a bit close minded about it last night, I’ll admit.

    I can see stopping and going to the bathroom if you have to. Maybe marathon organizers should start putting porta potties up for that.

  • It’s ok … I will answer that question. I am not a policeman anymore because of two things the first and most important reason is that after 5 years of dealing with “stupid” people I got burnt out on it … so I resigned. The other reason is that I got tired of dealing with “stupid” people for the low pay that police officers receive; so I got another job which pays better. Nice try Parrot Toes; cheap shot … but I guess you took what was available to you.
    As for your comment about convicting the guy based on my feelings, not facts available in the article…last I checked you have to be in a court room to “convict” someone of anything. So that is obviously not what I am doing here on an internet site. All I am doing is running my key pad – same as you. Have a nice day.

    I guess I’m not used to seeing naked marathons.

    I thought about it. Either everyone should be allowed to run naked if that’s the rule. Or no one at all. No exceptions. If running naked is allowed in this marathon, then I guess the guy should be allowed to do that. It doesn’t sound like that was the case, though.

  • pikeman

    By repeatedly saying “have a nice day” you are making it sound like you are resentful toward Parrot Toes opinion. Everyone has their own opinion. I’m not real hip on seeing this dude running naked, either. But if it is allowed, then he should have that right, I guess. It doesn’t sound like he had that right, though. Not according to the cops.
    I’ve been taking some heat on here too. Probably with good reason. It’s just opinions, no reason to get mad at PT. She’s a sensible poster.

  • pikeman

    I think part of the problem with this, is you have one guy running naked. Everyone else apparently had clothes on.

    Maybe the fair thing to do is start throwing all nude marathons. Make it mandatory for everyone to be naked in the “Naked Marathon”

    That way, there would be no one singled out. Anyone who wants to run naked, like this guy, can. Then there’s no squabbles about it. If someone doesn’t want their kids seeing it, they don’t go. If anyone is offended by it, they don’t go. That way you don’t just have one random dude running naked.

    I think it’s a good idea for anyone who does want to run naked.

    Now, while I have no issue with people being naked it seems that the law does. Fuck flopping dick and boobs would have me in a fit of laughter.. and any man willing to put it out there risking the chance of ridicule should it be a wee bit cold should be given a medal.

    That said, it does seem that Ohio does have a law against it.

    http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2907.09

    Now as to if the law it self if right or wrong to be on the books, it is there any ways. We could argue all we want how people should have the right to do it, and therefor he should not be arrested, but that could be argued for any case where a law is broken. Fuck, I wish it were legal to get rid of those who honestly should be removed from the human gene pool- doesn’t mean that should someone do that I would argue that they should “get off” They still broke the law.

    Now did anyone happen to get video of the flapping weenie? I am bored and need a good laugh today.

    I agree. Good points. I still cant get over wondering why a man would run naked anyway. Doesn’t all that flopping become distracting?
    Also, why wasnt he wearing underwear?

    “…but I seriously think that if we lived in a free-er nudity available society the perv’s and criminals would only jump to the next level of perversion.”

    Christ. You must be scared to death of Europe and their evolved Super Pervs. But that’s right… Their perverts aren’t any worse than ours, despite greater availability to nudity. In fact, by most metrics, they have fewer and more tame perverts, generally. So, if perverts aren’t any worse in freer societies, how were you planning on demonstrating or proving your assertion? I know you said there was no sense in you listing any, but I think it might be necessary afterall.

    What I believe PT to be saying is that there is a happy medium between letting everyone walk around naked whenever and where ever they want and charging them with a sex offense when they do.

    It’s no secret that oppression of things like sexuality will result in some strange and sometimes dangerous behaviors and scenarios. Thanks to some fucked up Christian values, our society has demonized nudity to such a point that we consider those who are comfortable enough in their skin to run around in it as a threat to society. It’s gotten so bad that government programs and non-profit organizations have to spend millions in advertising and counseling to get women to breastfeed their own babies, the most natural thing in the world. The masses don’t blink an eye when the government misappropriates tax dollars, but when baristas bear bikinis, they come out in droves to protest. Schools are forced to cover sex ed because parents are too uncomfortable with it to properly educate their children.

    I’m with PT. I’m quite convinced that our severe response to something as generally innocent as nudity creates perversion.

    You are right about this not being a court but I still chose to not “convict” or accuse, condemn, allege, jump to conclusions, or whatever you want to call it, without further information on this guy at this point. People get destroyed for that type of behaviour from others. I think it’s sad.

    Also, like I said, I know he MAY just be a pervert, but really, there are marathons where others do the same thing (see the video that JohnHouse posted above). Not everyone who does it is a creep or pervert. Some are just free spirits or they are trying to make a point or whatever else they might do it for.

    As for his excuse of borrowing his dad’s shorts, maybe he wasn’t a hardcore runner but did want to run. Perhaps the guy has some mental deficiencies. Maybe he’s slow-in-the-head. Who knows? I’m just not prepared to accuse someone of being something that he may not. To me, that no different than what a gossip does. They fill in the holes with their own conclusions and I find that sad. Maybe because I come from a small town where gossip is a daily past time. I know all too well how badly gossip can get out of hand and I have been at the wrong end a few times (unfairly – once involving my near rape). To the point where if stoning were legal, I wouldn’t be sitting here typing right now.

    I agree with you PT. Being a pretty large chick myself, I absolutely cringe when I see a fat person wearing something waaay too tight and/or revealing, but I do have to give some credit for their kind of “fuck you” attitude about others’ opinions. We may not want to see that, but we do have the choice to look away (even though I just can’t sometimes you know? lol)

    “Christ. You must be scared to death of Europe”

    Damn it. I was saving that argument. 😛

    “Schools are forced to cover sex ed because parents are too uncomfortable with it to properly educate their children”

    Exactly. When I was 12 and got my first womanly visit while at school under the excuse that I sat in red paint, I ran home crying and flipping out. I didn’t know what was happened and I literally thought I was dying. I was terrified.

    It’s this “censorship” of all things sexual, that creates parents who don’t know how to talk to their children about the important stuff, that creates people who are stunted by the reality of sexual behaviour and nudity OR creates people who get overloaded when they’ve “made the discovery”, creating perverts.

    I seriously think that if we lived in a free-er nudity available society the perv’s and criminals would only jump to the next level of perversion.

    Really? I don’t agree. I think that’s like saying if marijuana is legalized, then everyone who now smokes pot will just move on to harder drugs.

  • Athena sorry,but after working all day I am not in a mood at the moment to continue the discussion – so I will have to defer on the issue …plus its no fun really to discuss a subject with someone like Parrot who only seems interested in having an argument, which is badly disguised as a debate – while hurling adolescent insults.We will simply have to agree to disagree and move on to the next dum ass criminal.

    I am assuming you are Cedric? I am being slightly argumentative, yes, but you ACCUSED me of calling puredrivensnow stupid when I didn’t, just because YOU didn’t understand what I said. Sorry, dude, but that is not how I roll. You have been hurling insults at me too and you started it.

    Right? Being a new mom, I belong to a couple of mom forums. Yesterday, I responded to a thread created by a poor, tortured young woman who wants to breastfeed, but feels too awkward about the thought of anyone but her man sucking on her nipples. Nudity of any sort has been SO SEXUALIZED, this baby won’t likely get the benefits of breastmilk (I recommended she pump and bottle-feed). I also recently heard a man equate nursing in public to urinating in public. Seriously?

    It’s evident in even the way Morbid phrased the question – dedicated runner or perv? As if there were no middle ground. That middle ground simply doesn’t exist in many minds. No one can just like or be comfortable being naked. Something MUST be wrong with them.

    Nothing good is coming of this. This jogger is not the enemy. Was he being inappropriate? Yeah. But it doesn’t make him some sexual deviant. It just makes him stubborn.

  • Yes this is Cedric and I am about to pull my hair out (except that it is too short for me to grab) … made it home from work and my frigging home PC can never log onto whatever account I am using to comment on here from work.So, I am showing as bigcced right now, I didn’t even know that last post posted,I was so busy wrestling with the log in screen.I don’t like not being able to use my regular account – so I am done for today.Before I leave I want to apologize for any insults perceived or actual Parrot.Not to say you won’t get ticked another day at me … but you have my apology for this date in time.Smile … that’s how I roll….and may I say “Have a great day ? ” See you guys tomorrow.

    PT, I know where you’re coming from with the small town gossip comment, and I know how hurtful and insidious it can be, first hand. Having said that, I’ll reiterate my earlier point, I really don’t think the guy is a pervert, I think he’s an attention whore. If the cops felt the need to corral him then obviously nobody else at this event was running and dangling. “My shorts kept falling down so I let them go” ?? Seriously ?? You said that maybe he wasn’t a hardcore runner but wanted to run, sure I can go with that, but if he wasn’t a hardcore runner the second his shorts hit the pavement he would have considered maybe calling it a day……unless…well, you know what I mean.

    Okay, thanks for that. Will figure that out laters.

  • Parrot Toes

    I get where you’re coming from too, but on your last sentence, maybe he didn’t stop to call it a day for more than just that reason. Like I suggested above, he could have mental issues or be slow. Maybe he figured that if running naked is allowed in other marathons, that it should be allowed in this one. Perhaps this was his way of protesting. I don’t know.

    I do know though, that I am not prepared to call this guy a pervert yet. Nudists like to go bare, but they aren’t perverts. I would rather sit on the fence on this one than jump in to stone this guy.

    “Their perverts aren’t any worse than ours, despite greater availability to nudity. In fact, by most metrics, they have fewer and more tame perverts, generally.”

    I know you said “generally”, but isn’t the guy who likes to masturbate while rolling around in farm animal shit from England?

    I’m pretty sure that’s how Bay to Breakers is. Anyone who wants to run naked can.

    And at Pride, anyone who wants to walk around naked, can. I’ve watched the cops watch naked people walk by them. They grin and let it go (for the day).

    …Oh, but when some little Mexican-looking guy wants to draw a rainbow on the sidewalk with sidewalk chalk, they tell him to stop and move along. Assholes.

    It’s all good. And hey, if we butt heads again, we butt heads again. I don’t hold things like that against people though because it’s human nature to not always agree with each other. The world would be a boring place if we all thought the same.

    Pretty tame in comparison to, say, a violent serial rapist, wouldn’t you agree? I’d rather have my pervs minding their own business rolling around in animal shit than diddling kiddies or dragging women into bushes. 😛

    I’m glad that worked out, I was starting to see some seriously ruffled feathers here. A friend of mine had a Blue and Gold Macaw, man when that bird got cranky, I got scarce. Ya kill me.

  • Parrot Toes

    Lol. Were you worried I would leave because of a conflict? If so, not a chance. It would take a lot more than that to have me fly the coop. I did get a bit ruffled with the “stupid” accusation but otherwise, I wasn’t meaning to sound all angered or whatnot.

    Well I guess it is safer to taze a naked man than to chase after: a murderer who might have a gun, a thief who might have a gun, a child abuser who might have a gun, hmmm what other types of criminals might be running around with knives or guns or other weapons that might actually hurt an innocent member of society?

  • living in a country with the benefit of free health care, i’ve helped myself to it quite a bit of it in the past year. nothings wrong. in fact after getting off that wretched “american” diet, everything that was wrong with me has cleared up. i was plaaaaagued with gallbladder attacks – after the first few months of a brazillian diet, it was cleared up! i’m better than ever.

    also

    i’ve worked in some pretty heavy duty jobs where i’ve had to push myself to ridiculous limits – however it was at a slower pace. if it were a disease of some type working on my kidney’s i think i’d have this every time i over exerted myself.

    which is why i’m convinced this isolated incident was running induced. i never run – and i was forced to run for about 10 blocks at top speed – to my body that was the equivalent of a marathon.

    [QUOTE] I’m not saying that people running down the street naked or people
    flashing the naughty bits should be allowed anywhere at anytime  [/QUOTE]

    Parrot Toes / Cedric.  The point is, if you consider your genitals “naughty bits”, then you are the problem.    Thankfully I understand you are using the term to illustrate your point only.  Alas, the organs of virtually the entire clothes-wearing world are in fact naughty bits, because they are all sexually obsessed.

    Personally, I am celibate…. so my bits are far from “naughty”.  Therefore is it ok for we to walk anywhere naked?  You would think so!

    Yet the answer is “No”, because 99% of the people who see me will be perverts, a statistical representation of the western world population as a whole.  Hence when they see me starkers they will instantly think of sex.  Nothing else!  Their minds are so out of control with sexual OCD they cannot even be trusted with their own kids naked in the bath.  Their “naughty bits” are actually weapons, so they have to be concealed to protect women and children.

    So of course I cannot walk around naked as I do not wish to be held responsible for stirring the perverted human race sufficiently into raping each other. 

    In summary, it is those who complain who are the perverts, because it is they who are blasphemously labelling God’s greaatest creation, the human body, obscene. Alas, it is they who are the raging inferno ignited from a tiny spark from one naked runner.

    Brett Henderson Flying Pig Streaker Banned From Future Races
    Pleads Guilty To Public Indecency Charge
     
    CINCINNATI — A man who attempted to run this year’s Flying Pig Marathon in the nude was sentenced Tuesday.

    Brett Henderson, 35, made headlines when he was spotted running the marathon in May wearing only a headband and running shoes.

    […]
    Henderson pleaded guilty Tuesday to a public indecency charge. He was sentenced to a year of probation and 80 hours of community service.

    In addition, Henderson must pay the entry fee for this year’s race, which he apparently had not paid, and is banned from running any future Flying Pig marathons.http://www.wlwt.com/r/29450837/detail.html
