Mom Ticketed After Boy Urinates In Street

September 15, 2012  | 

A mother said she was outraged when a Philadelphia Police officer gave her a $50 ticket and parenting lecture after her 2-year-old son urinated in public.

Carolina Robboy was shopping with her two children on Sunday, when son Nathaniel told her he needed to go to the bathroom. The boy then ran to a traffic light pole and took matters into his own hands.

The officer wrote on the $50 ticket that Robboy told her son to go in the street and never acknowledged it was an accident.

"He said, 'I'm doing this for your own protection because God forbid there might have been a pervert out there looking at my son,'" Robboy told NBC 10.

You know if he didn't give her the ticket and some pervert was looking at her son then she would sue the officer for not protecting her son and it would be the officer's fault that her son peed in public and got saw by the pervert.

Nice to see a mother (?) watching her 2 year old "run to a traffic light pole", which I guess is not too far from the street. When my kids were that age we held their hands EVERYWHERE we went. Imagine the lawsuit momma would have brought if the boy had been hit by a car? Poor parenting. Blues, stay safe.
