Public Decency Laws

Recently a 15 year old high school student committed suicide after being arrested and charged with public indecency for streaking at a high school football game. He was facing expulsion from school and being put on a sex offender registry (for more see: http://blog.al.com/breaking/2013/10/sparkman_high_student_facing_d.html). In the light of incidents such as this, do you think laws against public nudity should be relaxed or eliminated?
