    Wyo. Police Pledge Crackdown on Streakers

    JACKSON, Wyo. - Every year, as the sun sets on the Teton County Fair, the moons come out: as many as 10 streakers at the demolition derby on the fair's last day. This year, law enforcement officers are pledging a crackdown.

    Teton County Attorney Steve Weichman said a growing number of people have told him they didn't think that "drunk, crazy and naked streaking" is a "great, normal, fun thing."

    Opposition to the streaking has grown since last year's derby, he said, when a deputy used a Taser to apprehend John Chase Rogers, 21, dropping him to the dirt as he streaked with a fire extinguisher before a crowd of 3,500.

    Posters at the fair office warn that at this year's fair, any public nudity will bring a charge of misdemeanor child endangerment, punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

    Attorney David DeFazio spoke out against last year's Taser incident and questioned the need for a crackdown this year.

    "I just question whether a couple of streakers at a county fair in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, is objectionable to accepted standards of decency," he said.

    But Jackson Police Chief Dan Zivkovich said streaking doesn't have to be tolerated. "We just think it's time to take control of the event again and say this really is intended to be a family event," he said.

    The demolition derby will be July 30.

    I guess it takes people a while to crack down on the cracks. Streaking was popularized in the '70s and in 2006 they decide enough is enough.

    Say what??? Child endangerment? They're letting children run around on the demo derby track? Because that's the only way I can see that a nekkid streaker will endanger any child.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    That is away to get rid of the streaks by letting them dodge cars during the derby.

    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?
