Skirting the issues


Here is more about the now famous prudish behavior of the NYPD for stopping a woman due to her skirt length.

The village voice has a story about it on their blog-Running Scared.

Here Jasmijn Rijcken confirms this was harassment and not a publicity stunt.
She made the following statement:
“I understand that they say that. I actually never went to the press myself. I just posted it on our Facebook page. I would have never for a second thought that this would be all over the media. I never mentioned my bike because I don’t think that it matters what bike it is. It’s beside the point.

I don’t know really what to say to people who doubt it. It perhaps shows how insane it is that the police did this.”
