I'd say there's more to this story. She's not homeless, so why couldn't she bring them back to her place if she wanted that?

I bet she's married. Or should I say...WAS....married.

well, in Britain the cops are advised that if a couple are having "open air" sex and take precautions of modesty, dont bother busting them.

not happening in sexphobic America

this supposed crime is blown out of most the cop should have told the couple to dress up and take their business elsewhere

Did anyone else notice that the police report hints to some pent-up aggression on the part of the officer for having to witness this filth he encounters on a daily basis?
