I read with dismay the front page coverage of the Lethbridge Police Officer urinating in a city parking lot – not for the perceived insult to the service and the uniform, but for the lack of alternatives that should have been considered for the officer’s behaviour.
Perhaps the officer may have prostate problems or was delayed investigating an accident scene where no bathroom facilities were available. The officer obviously did not want to disgrace his image by further wetting himself and appearing further in public.
Does Aaron Lybbert express the same disdain for golfers urinating behind trees or car doors on the highway. Perhaps his observation skills would be better employed observing and reporting drug deals, car prowlings, vehicle thefts, prostitution.
I’m sure the new group of street patrollers would welcome his mentorship!
