    Give me a break. The guy had to pee and the woman saw him peeing. If that's all she has to complain about, then I'd like to switch lives with her for a day. She could have looked away and went on about her business. This happens everday on the golf course with no problems. If the guy turned toward her and blatently showed it to her, that would be different, but the story doesn't say that. It also doesn't mention that a child was with the woman. Some people just can't tolerate anything they don't like. Get over it lady.

    Moore Square would be such a nice place to visit if RPD was allowed to get rid of the drunks and trash that hang out every day of the week.

    Isn't that address the homless shelter off McDowell? Either way... there are plenty of bushes to hide behind and pee.

    If I saw a man urinating I would look the other way and keep it movin'. He can't expose you to something you don't look at.

    Marbles is a kids' museum! Whether he meant to flash or not... I don't think children seeing his junk was part of the tour. For pete's sake, at least find a bush to hide behind if you can't hold it.

    EWW! At least go behind a tree!

    Doesn't sound like he intentionally exposed himself like a flasher. He was answering the call of nature, maybe not in the appropriate place, but nonetheless, doesn't sound like he meant for her to see.

    A man urinated in the Target parking lot right in front of me! It was disgusting and I was too shocked to call the police on him. Now I see I should have!
