I don't believe the woman. I'll bet the cop didn't believe her either. I suspect she lets her son pee wherever and whenever he feels like it. He doesn't have to plan ahead and use the public bathrooms like everyone else. Just whip it out.

Parking lots are for parking cars. They aren't port-a-pottys for special little brats.

I'm giving praises to that cop.

It's one thing if they were out on a hike in the middle of the woods or on the side of the highway miles from the closest public bathroom, but to pee in a parking lot just feet away from a public bathroom? That's disgusting.

I don't care if it's a 3-year-old's pee, I don't want to be stepping in it while pumping gas or going inside for a coffee.
But yet you step in cat ****, dog ****, raccoon ****, rat ****, every time you do that.

It's a little kid. He told his mom he couldn't hold it. If he REALLY couldn't, he'd be walking around in ****-soiled pants. A better alternative, right?

I honestly am still shocked at this charge of "disorderly conduct".

And I thank God I live in a community of normal people, not just people who exist on the internet forums who would support this criminal charge against a mother of a preschooler who had to pee in a parking lot.

Thankfully, I fully believe this charge WILL NOT STAND, and hopefully the officer bringing this charge will be fired from the police force, or in the very least, be required to have a complete mindset change through extensive re-training.

And stop reporting on the citation that you saw the little boy's genitalia. Really.

Of all the bs that is going on today, a 3 year old who can't hold his pee in is the target of angry adults, and being sited by the police.
No, I think the anger is at lax parents, not at the kids. Unfortunately there are parents who don't have the sense god gave a grasshopper and who let their kids go wherever. I heard a woman tell her kid to pee on a bush at the library because she didn't want to walk back inside. I've seen a few instances of parents that let young boys pee in parking lots or public areas of a campground. (It always seems to be boys, are girls just better at holding it in or do moms just make more effort to get the girls into a bathroom?) I agree a ticket was probably more than was warranted but it DOES make me wonder if there's more to the story than the mom is telling.

I can't even tell what you're trying to say due to all the censored profanity.

Fired? Really? You think he should lose his job for ticketing someone for public urination?

It's against the law, he was doing his job.

Its a 3 year old. People love to call parents out. Call them bad parents because their child do something "their kid would NEVER DO "
My daughter when I picked her up from daycare said she was fine. She did not have to pee. Then, all of a sudden, on the way home she had to go badly. She ended up peeing her pants. I would have let her pee in the bushes but I am too worried about what people would say and do if they saw it. Unlike the mother of the boy in the article, I caved in. I regret it now.

Who said anything about arresting the kid?

Letting your kid pee in a parking lot is disgusting, especially when there is a bathroom only a few feet away.

A neighbor bragged about her toddler being potty trained. Not only did he whip it out and pee in a parking lot, I was at their house and he pulled a bowl off the table and peed in it sitting in his high chair. Way to go mom.
