One of our most celebrated TV guest stars and Christopher Guest movie staples was arrested yesterday (today? Sometime in the recent past) for diddling his doo-dad in an adult movie theater.
What is the big problem, is what I'm wondering.
I mean, I don't know why the police raided the thing. I'm an internet blogger and I choose to be as uninformed as I want to be and I haven't had time to delve too deeply into the hows and whys of this situation, so maybe the police were on a drug bust or there was some prostitution angle. I'm thinking probably drugs, though, because I'm watching The Wire right now and everything is about drugs.
But even if they had a good reason for raiding the place, why did they bother arresting men for doing what any man goes to an adult movie theater to do (I'm guessing)?
I remember when I was a kid and the whole Pee-Wee's pee-wee thing came out and it was a huge deal and parents forbade children from watching Pee-Wee's Playhouse and as a kid I was like, "Whoa, serious business," because I was a kid and I had no concept of what was really going on.
So, now as an adult, I guess I'm wondering why we bother arresting people for this? I'm genuinely wondering, if any law enforcement people can enlighten me.
It seems counterproductive, is all. I watched The Wire episode yesterday where Bunny Colvin says, "There's never been a paper bag...for drugs." I'm curious why there's also never been a paper bag for wanking your johnson in an adult movie theater.
