    Great captured Mike! like it and perhaps this image can be removed out of the critique zone.

      Thanks Rene. It was a lucky photo. Had the camera pointed in the right direction when this happened -- just quickly pressed the shutter to shoot off a few frames. Chose this frame because of where the guy was looking.

      Thank you Roza. Unfortunate to see someone be so pompous that they could think they could get away with groping in public like this -- hence the title of the image. Timing was just by chance as explained above to Rene.
