Pantsless mannequin terrorizes Neb.

Police in Beatrice, Neb., got a call from a concerned citizen who was concerned about a pantsless mannequin in a store window. The cops tried contacting the store owner, but couldn't reach him, so they covered the window with paper, which upset the store owner.

When he confronted the police, he was threatened with a citation of disturbing the peace. So he got a lawyer and threatened them right back. Here's how the city attorney sums up the situation:

“We’re currently looking at whether or not it was obscene,” Tempelmeyer said  Friday. “The U.S. Supreme Court and State of Nebraska have a system to determine if something is obscene. At this point, I’m not willing to say one way or another.
