Was I in the wrong for 'roughing' this guy up?
Since you asked, and in a word, yes.

Given a choice of having my fully-clothed picture taken without my knowledge (the woman in your party), vs being physically assaulted (the photographer), I'd take the former.

Two wrongs don't make a right.

I think the fact that theFed didn't get a fight out of the guy is pretty good proof that he was up to know good.

I think "thefed" can't resisit getting involved in adrenaline-filled situations. here's hoping he doesn't end up seriously hurt or killed because he decided on his own to mess with the wrong person...........

There's psychos everyone among us, my goal is to be as nice to them as I can.......

Why yes, he IS!

One of his favorite foods!

I just sort of figured that we'd more or less reached the range of reasoned debate on the original topic, and I'm fresh out of bacon wrapped boobs to try to derail things before we get to the point of name calling and hurt feelings.

If this doesnt work, I have a picture of my dog eating a piece of bacon.

And if that doesn't work, I would enjoy a photo of bacon and watermelon together....

If someone objected to your photographing that sandwich would it be wrong of him to "rough you up"?

He would be fully justified. I doubt the Bunny got it's permission, and it was certainly done to arouse the passions. Worked on me.

Did Gabe consent to you photographing him with bacon in hand? I'm sure somewhere on the internet there is a group of people who are pedobaconphiles. What was your intent in posting that picture? Have you been to Texas lately? Round up the posse and get em boys...

Yes, in fact I asked him and he consented. I also got his parents consent.

I actually had to take about 9 pictures as he always gives me this goofy scrunched up face smile when he sees me taking his picture.

Not only did the sandwich give its consent, it showed me everything while it was getting dressed.

Well, since you say it was getting dressed, that puts you in a "private dressing room" exception which is not covered by the section of the Texas Penal code Leonidas posted above. But it has its own section of the Penal code that really defines the concept of "Texas Justice".

Thank God CFB obtained the bacon and watermelon's consent as BOTH the following conditions must be met for the Texans to illegally enjoy the photograph:

(A) without the other person's consent; and
(B) with intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person;

I have to go show the photo to DH (now in day 12 of his ER) to see if part B works

Slightly back OT, next time, walk up to the guy snapping the photos, and say "She's the hottest prosecuting attorney I've ever seen; don't you think?"
