Richard Gere Arrest Warrant

An arrest warrant has been issued for Richard Gere for dipping and hugging an Indian actress on stage in what, according to the complaint filed in that country, amounts to an obscene act.

The actress, Shilpa Shetty, also faces charges for not resisting the American movie star.

A former Indian legal official suggests that the warrants are not enforceable and should be dropped. But this is another example of attempts to muzzle people for their public expression around the world.

Excuse me, but wasn't this the woman who appeared in 'Big Brother' and won it, and who was acclaimed by all of India as a worthy representative for the country?

It's also the guy that is claimed to have appeared in the emergency room with a gerbil up his nether end.

Uhh. That didn't actually happen (see SNOPES).
