    This story comes out of Philadelphia.

    A 2 year old boy’s mother said while they were shopping they weren’t allowed to use the restroom in the store.

    The little boy couldn’t hold it anymore, and when they got outside the store, he pulled his pants down and took a whizz on a street pole.

    An officer showed up and handed the mother a ticket for public urination, and started to lecture her on parenting, saying it is to protect them against perverts and child molesters.

    What do you think should have happened? I mean the boy is only 2 years old! Is it the mother’s responsibility to make sure he has a bathroom to use?

    Sound off below.

      That was child abuse what they did to that poor boy. Yet the ticket went on his record and under his name. The store managers and the officer both should be sued. The manager for not allowing the child in the bathroom and the officer for giving him a ticket with a straight face. I bet the officer signed the boys name on the ticket since he is only two and can’t sign it himself.

        Jorge,

        Thanks for your opinion. I think all the police departments across the country have become too politically correct and too by the book.

        I can understand wanting to protect the child, but a fine was out of line in my opinion.

      Protect him against a molester? Agun would work better than a piece of paper, if its about protection. Does this mean if a drunk, violent, coked up, while driving minor, with an adult present, the adult gets the ticket?

      Should have peed on the managers leg.

      I don’t see how ticketing a child will protect them from a molester (?). I wonder if the store serves prepared food. where I live, it is law that if you serve food, you must have rest room facilities available at all times. The store should be investigated before ticketing the child for public urination.

        Kevin,

        Thanks for your comment. It is kind of odd how the officer assumed there are child molesters just camping out waiting for a little boy to pee in public.

        I’m sure if the officer would have drove a few blocks down the street, he would have found bums urinating all over the place. Go ticket them too pal.
