YOUR 15 MINUTES: Don't Shit Where You Sleep

Newly illegal in Vegas: Sleeping near urine or feces.

It was passed unanimously by the Las Vegas City Council as part of a bill making it a misdemeanor to go to the bathroom in public. Homeless and civil rights advocates said the ordinance is another attempt by city officials to target the homeless." Seriously, are you kidding me?" asked Lee Rowland, public advocate for the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada. "I don't know how on earth a police officer would determine whether someone has knowingly set up shop next to" urine or feces. [source]
