Are we becoming a nation of prurient finks?

I can't believe some poor man in Nanaimo BC did four months in jail for masturbating in his own house. He was sentenced to jail for committing an indecent act after he was ratted out by two neighbours observing him through a chink in their blinds.

This Globe and Mail article notes the supreme court decision exonnerating him.

The writer explains the guy was jerking off by his living room window, but takes a dozen paragraphs before mentionning that the complainants, who must lead fascinating lives, used binoculars and a telescope to observe him – for about 15 minutes apparently – committing this “indecent act.”

Then they called the police.
