An Even Hand for Crapping in Public


Letter to the Editor:

Doing what comes naturally in public is now illegal in downtown San Antonio 
UNLESS you are a dog on a leash.

Even a pampered mongrel can lift a leg or squat to urinate or defecate along 
the carefully husbanded riverwalk IF the animal is linked to an owner 
spending big bucks at a downtown hotel.

No one, even a pet, should get away with taking a leak or an unattended crap 
downtown. Many large cities have ordinances requiring owners to carry 
poop-and-scoop containers while out walking pets. Stiff fines are levied for 
uncollected do-do. Why not in San Antonio?

There's something perverted about harassing only the homeless over their 
crap. The City Council needs to get its shit together!
