    I never had a problem with my kid urinating in public when he was that age. Then again, I didn't leave him unattended near a neighborhood street when he was 3 years old either.

    Glad the ticket was dropped. That was a ridiculous fine.

    Apparently common sense isn't a prerequisite to get a badge anymore?

    Federalization of the police force, as a requirement of their funding, guts their capacity to make such personal decisions. A choice to allow the law to be broken is a crime that risks them their job, their future, and shames the department in the eyes of the Feds.

    You just can't take the risk when big brother is watching.

    I saw this the other day, $2500 is just an insane amount even if it is an adult.

    if it was an adult it would have been $10,000, a year in prison, and being permanently placed on a sex offender list.

    What 3 year old kid hasn't taken a leak outside before? Hell, I know all of my kids have - with and without my permission.

    Animals pee outside. If you don't have indoor plumbing, use the outhouse.

    And we're all animals. Anyone who has ever done anything outdoorsy has peed outside at some point.

    Meh, cops are just glorified tax collectors these days, because their municipalities are broke. Expect more of this.

    It was, however, a cul-de-sac, so it's not as though they had any through traffic, nor likely that the speed limit is very high.

    Hey, at least he peed in the street, where it could run down the storm drain! ;)

    Yup, I live in a cul-de-sac and the kids absolutely LOVE to play out there because there's only traffic coming to five houses.

    They should search the officer's home computer. It might have interesting results.

    "maam, I'm giving your 3 year old son a ticket because I was sexually aroused by him going to the bathroom"

    You guys let your 3yr olds just run wild and pee outside? Guess my parents just raised me better than most. Hmm. :/
