Recently, while serving as the security guy at church camp, I had a police officer man the security hut for a while. We ended up chatting the whole time he had signed up to volunteer for that hour of service. He told me many police stories, some funny; others sad.
One thing he did tell me however, really startled me.
He said that with the new Sex Offender Laws, if you are arrested for urinating in public, you will become a registered sex offender!
OH MY GOODNESS!!!!
He said generally police officers are extremely reluctant to actually arrest anyone for that now, because it will literally ruin their lives! He said that there are some hard-nosed cops, however, that are zealous at it.
He went on to say that the biggest offender of this "code" is women!!!!
His advice: wait until you find a bathroom; it may just ruin your life if you don't!
(truth is stranger than fiction)
