    Topless Stroll Settlement

    NEW YORK (AP) - A New York artist is getting $29,000 for a topless stroll. The woman, who calls herself Phoenix Feeley, was busted during her bare-breasted walk two years ago. Now, she's accepting a 29-grand settlement from the city. In 1992, a state appeals court ruled women had the same right to be topless as men. Her attorney, Jeffrey Rothman, tells the Daily News he hopes police have learned a lesson. He says officers need to respect the rights of women who want to go shirtless in public.

    She's not topless if her hair is covering up her boobies. I'm disappointed at ABC news for not providing in-depth and accurate news photography, which must include boobies

    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    As smart as man is, we haven't been able to invent a machine that can smell drugs or tell us where a person has walked, Dogs are sophisticated investigative tools!

    Common sense has fled, to be replaced by idiocy...

    and the City pays $29,000.00 to a slut because two cops did their job.

    That's what it boils down to doesn't it? If the city has any legal avenues left, I think they should have fought it all the way.

    Seriously, settlements out of court when they still have appeals open just encourage more lawsuits - That's the reason cities and PD's are liability-phobic.

    They blame legal costs, but the truth is they don't NEED a team of high-priced lawyers to work on a case like this - All they need is a staff lawyer with enough skill to keep the ball in the air till the other side gives up, in many cases. A staff lawyer doesn't make anywhere NEAR a 6-digit salary.

    But I can be against the settlement and still support women's rights

    I just noticed something...
    Jill Coccaro, who now goes by the name Phoenix Feeley
    Does that sound like a X-rated stage name, or what?
