HEIGHTs of moral policing

This is probably the height of moral policing. A headline on the Chennai edition of The Times of India read like this – “4 HELD FOR WATCHING PORN”. Oh my God, since when did the cops start snooping around to see if anyone is watching porn? I wonder how many youngsters would be behind the bars in the coming days. The reason the cops gave for the action was that they were afraid the youngsters would probably sell the CDs they possessed which is a crime. Give them a break. Its natural for a youngster to watch porn, especially if he is living with friends. I am in no way endorsing porn, but what I am saying is that people should be allowed to mind their businesses. The police has no right to poke their noses into the private lives of people. An interesting point is that the arrests came at a time when the city’s safety is at a concern with so many bomb threats reported all over. Instead of checking into that, the cops seem to be worried about the ‘corruption’ of young minds. This when there is nobody to check into their own corruption levels.
