06/24/09 127 W - + 13 - 6 North Carolina Protects Portable Potties

Today's News & Observer has the poop on a state law taking effect December 1. Portable potties are newly protected against theft, vandalism, or destruction. Dethrone a throne and go to jail. Penalties can include a judge-set fine, or a room at hotel hoosegow. Oh crap, indeed. The narrowly defined crime of can abasement was promoted this spring by the state's portable toilet industry. Unknown if any members are named John. Though intentional abuse of mobile commodes is already covered under existing laws, the industry wanted a law specific to their problems. Insert own joke about additional paperwork. After December 1, the article notes, potty owners can post warnings, cautioning users against untoward toilet behavior. Not everyone's privy to this problem. Read the article.
