Wayne Antonio Morris, of Durham, is charged with four counts of indecent exposure and a parole violation.

According to investigators, Morris exposed himself in incidents reported on Oct. 27, Nov. 2, Nov. 5 and Wednesday. In each incident, women told officer they saw a man exposing himself outside their windows.

Investigators began looking into the incidents early this month, and Morris was arrested Wednesday after a call about a man exposing himself in the 800 block of East Main Street.

Morris was in the Durham County jail Thursday being held without bond.

    A good punch to the stomach area usually wipes a smile off someone's ignorant face. Granted I would not approve of this for someone brought in for shoplifting, but pulling out your junk, on the side of a road, where children can see you, well, that's just different. In my book, that makes it perfectly fine. It's too bad that this cat doesn't have parents, who actually care about him.

    How do you advise police make someone have an appropriate face during a mugshot? If criminals were into conforming into what "everybody else" does or wants, they would not be committing crimes.

    This is at least the second time in a few weeks police have allowed a ridiculous dramatic mug shot pose. Honestly, letting the arrested look like they're crazy only helps them, they should HAVE TO conform to looking at the camera blandly like everybody else.

    Besides, they'll find all the drama they want in prison.
