I cannot believe a young man was arrested for urinating on a fence. I see 10 cyclists a week doing that in my braeside neighborhood every week along the country club and private home fence lines. Boys and men, cyclists, marathoners, all do this their whole life so what's the big deal? As a parent of 2 boys 6 and 8 I have allowed them to urinate in bushes or on trees in times of dire need. I guess I'm fostering criminality? Really? Maybe that man had a bladder problem or another good resason.. A record at 23 years old with "disorderly conduct" shows how desperate police must be to prove they are working to uphold the law and protect citizens..I think it's petty and ridiculous. The parents of the youngster spotting it should feel ashamed for ruining the life of a young person. Maybe when their child reaches their 20s they will understand what links moral reasoning with moral action. Caring for our neighbors and community..working things out without involving the police is always a choice...
