Shaming Lingers in the Modern Age

       A 21 year old Lewis County man takes a leak in a parking lot in Lowville and gets tagged with public urination and public lewdness. They will probably ACD it or plead out to something else, but this young man still has a record. The record of the Internet which potential employers and in-laws will check and discover a sex crime.
     Natures call is something not to do in plain view but it's too bad someone has "lewdness" on their Google forever just because they did what's natural except for our social constraints on routine bodily functions. I've had occasional incidents over the years with customers and I don't call the cops, and instead give them a piece of my mind.
     The local media has discarded covering routine traffic tickets as a means of shaming. I wonder if its time for this one to go to ?

It is an overblown situation sometimes. Being stupid about it is one thing. But I saw an old guy barely get out of his car and start going. He had bladder control problems and tried to hide but couldn't. Let the police handle it on a case by case basis. Trouble is, some agencies don't want their officers thinking. Trust the officers.

public exposure is one thing,which the urination would cover,but lewdness would require a specific act,which who knows what the guy did,shook it at onlookers or whatever.

Hey 7:12, use an apostrophe after the y in guys. Dumbass.

And yes, he's no Mr Huma either. The guy did send photos of his penis to prospects. You didn't get one, didja?

Just another revenue generator. I'd rather piss my pants then give the jackbooted thugs a reason to issue a ticket.
