Why won't people mind their own business?

Why won't people mind their own business as Robert Stewart was placed on the sex offenders’ register after being caught trying to have sex with a bicycle. Robert Stewart was discovered in his room by two cleaners at the Aberley House Hostel in Ayr, south west Scotland, in October last year.

On Wednesday Mr Stewart admitted to sexual breach of the peace in Ayr Sheriff Court, where depute fiscal Gail Davidson described how he had been found by the hostel workers. She said: "They knocked on the door several times and there was no reply.

"They used a master key to unlock the door and they then observed the accused wearing only a white T-shirt, naked from the waist down.

"The accused was holding the bike and moving his hips back and forth as if to simulate sex." Both witnesses, who were extremely shocked, notified the hotel manager, who in turn alerted the police.

...This story is stupid and this incident should never have involved the Police. These 2 chambermaids should have just ignored their discovery, this guy was no threat to them. He was acting in private and they invaded his privacy. He was doing no harm to anyone. Walking in on someone naked in a hotel room must be part of the territory of being a chambermaid. There can be nothing shocking about seeing someone naked for goodness sake. I would have thought that walking in on this guy should have brightened up their rather dull and boring job. I would not have been bothered and certainly would not have been shocked, if I had walked in on someone naked or having sex. These 2 chambermaids were wrong to report their observations to the hotel manager. The hotel manager grossly over reacted when he alerted the Police. Why the Police went for a prosecution is beyond me, what a waste of public resources - have they no real crimes to investigate? And who are the alleged victims of this crime? These 2 women could have been watching television in his hotel room and switched channels and chanced upon a programme featuring naked people. These same 2 women could have emptied a litter bin in that hotel room and found a pornographic magazine. Oh big deal women, grow up and act your age. If I were to chance upon naked people in my day job it would brighten up my day and I would not complain to management. Many a time I have caught the sight of naked buttocks in my headlights as I drive past women answering the call of nature late at night. It never shocks me, it just makes me smile. Life is to be enjoyed and to put Robert Stewart on the sex offenders register is rather sad.

Absolutely ridiculous, but I'm not surprised at all.

No the police should not have become involved and once they did in the past all that would have happened would that they would have "had a word". These days it's a nice easy detection for them - one crime, one detection, tick in the box for the government form.

And the sex offenders register that we all thought was going to be for the likes of child molesters and rapists... well if you get caught short and go down an alley for a leak and some policeman sees you (or someone makes a complaint) then guess what - you end up on it too.

Makes you sick!
