This officer obviously never heard of discretion. Can't believe this ticket was actually written, and then not dismissed outright by the judge and or prosecutor.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
Wait a minute, lets think outside of the box here since this is what this police officer is doing I am assuming. I am not a lawyer nor do I pretend to be, but since the *child* had his *manhood* out and the police officer *saw* it in plain view in order for him to charge him with what he did, would not that not be child pornography for the police officer ??? Just a thought. God Bless
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
Ah, well. If all tossed out for reasons of insanity (on the part of the ticketer), all's good ... more or less. Until the next installment. But at least the community's awakened to stupidity in their midst. Perhaps.I read that the police chief had already thrown out the ticket.
Everyone interviewed in the town said they were embarassed by it all.
It will be tossed out , or should be...... any child under 10 yrs old is considered to not be able to form the thoughts of criminal intent, and or be held responsible for them. It is totally mindless.

The cop was probably pissed the 3 year old had a bigger one than his
A bit of an odd twist to the Peter Principle. </deadpan>
That officer is an embarresment to all leo's, he should be removed from the force indeffinatly without pay.and be countered sued $2,500 for being brain dead jackass !!!!
This thread reminds of a time, long,long ago...
My two boys, at that time 6 and 3 were out in the yard playing on the swingset. My wife and my sister in law(the certifiable lunatic)were sitting in lawnchairs just hanging out and watching the kids.
I live on 20 acres of big timber, and the road deadends on my property line. I dont have any neighbors that I can see.
Oldest kid pulls up a tree and takes a whiz. No big deal, he's done it a million times.
Certifiable lunatic jumps all over him and tells him to go in the house. She tells him its not "decent" to whiz out in the yard.
Kid comes and tells me, Daddy, Aunt Lunatic says I cant go pee in the yard anymore. She wants me to use the bathroom.
All sorts of visions pop into my head. I had just purchased a high efficiency toliet that was only supposed to allow X number of gallons to flush at any one time and it was approved for use in California and a few other tree hugging states. I had just seen a History Channel special on water conservation and how in the near future, we'd all be paying for bottled water. I didnt really beleive that, but some of it came true. Anyhow, the more I thought about it, the more it ticked me off.
Out of the house I stormed and me and the Aunt had an eyeball to eyeball discussion. " Janet" (real name of lunatic)I said in a stern voice, while raising my right eyebrow to show displeasure at the thought of having to explain this to her... " I do NOT want the boys wasting 5 gallons of water to flush the toilet everytime they have to go pee. It is a mans and a boys perogative, to pee ANYWHERE they want, WHEN they want to. Are we clear hear?".
With the same deer in the headlight look that she usually displays, she said " Bob, I just dont think its polite for boys to pee in the yard".
"Janet"...I said. "I know that you grew up without brothers and you dont understand this, that is why I am telling you...males pee on trees, in the yard and yes, some times even on truck tires. Thats the way its always been and thats the way its always gonna be. When you gotta go, you gotta go".
She looked over at her sister for support and instead found her hiding deeply in the magazine she was reading. No support from there.
"Well!" she harumped. "I guess its time for me to go anyway!"
She hops in here car and starts backing out and my youngest at that time (3 years old) walks up to the same tree and pees on it. He smiles and waves as she exits.
I always thought that it was a fitting end to a whacky conversation.
With that being said, If ever I felt the need to give a young boy a ticket for taking a whiz while on Patrol, I would hope that one of my friends, upon hearing of such lack of discretion on my part, would beat me senseless so that at the very least I would think about that whooping before I ever thought to do something that stupid again.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
