    SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australian police warned on Friday that the law would lose its bite if "mooning" became enshrined as an implied constitutional right.

    A lawyer for defendant James Albert Ernest Togo, 20, told a court in the eastern state of Queensland last month that his client was exercising his right to protest and was not guilty of indecency when he bared his buttocks at a police car last August.

    But police prosecutor Senior Sergeant Michael Purcell said Friday that argument was bogus and dangerous.

    Purcell told the court he could not imagine naked buttocks replacing the kangaroo and emu on Australia's Coat of Arms.

    "How can the action of someone dropping their pants and exposing their buttocks become public comment or a political protest?" he asked, the Australian Associated Press reported.

    "If we allowed everyone who wanted to drop their pants and moon police officers, we are undermining the authority of the police."
