A homeless man who goes by the street name "Landfill"

The defendant initially denied urinating in the park, and then stated he 'was an old man.'

What does it matter that there were kids in the park?

Odds are those little disgusting monsters are shiatting and pissing all over the place, too.

Outraged about the piss, fine with the homeless part.

In our society you can call someone who will immediately deal with the pissing, but not someone who can immediately deal with the homeless issue.

Good. Our society should protect our kids, especially from mentally unstable public urinators.

"Witnesses stated the defendant's actions were 'disgusting' and caused them moral outrage."

No, Officer, they did not. No one talks like that. No, you've read Florida's disorderly conduct statute where it says, "acts as are of a nature to corrupt the public morals, or outrage the sense of public decency" and conflated the first and second clauses into this "moral outrage", but no witnesses in the history of ever have said something "caused them moral outrage". The arrest should be thrown out, and the Officer should be investigated for violation of Florida Statute 839.13, falsifying records.

It was Landfill. Now his name should be changed to I. P. Freely.

You could always donate your TotalFark money to your local homeless shelter.

That's because in the vast, wide majority of the country, there are about a million options for a homeless person that don't involve pissing in front of people.

Chances are, the person dealing with the pissing issue will also deal with the homeless issue, too.

Not sure of your point. What he did was wrong, homeless or not.

And he's homeless, because HE is homeless. You didn't put him there. I doubt anyone did. He's there because of his bad life decisions. Why the anger towards society? How are they to blame for this persons actions?

I volunteer at one of the homeless shelters in town about 15-20 hours a week. I can tell you about 50% of the homeless people want to be homeless and have cultivated quite an interesting opinion of those of us that work everyday to keep a bunch of unnecessary crap and then there is a large percent of " homeless" that are only homeless in the winter when the shelter is open. The rest of the year they pool their money and live in hotels. My experience is that maybe 25% want to get off the streets and back into a normal life the rest are perfectly content to beg and mooch and be free.

I've been pretty upset about a few things in my life but I don't believe I've ever felt like something caused me "moral outrage"...

/mainly because of your first point - no one talks like that.  Or even thinks like that.

If I ever get the chance to make a statement to the police about some crime I witnessed, I will say that it caused me "moral outrage", I don't care what the crime was.

Last summer, I was in my apartment with the windows open and heard someone taking a piss up against the building. I yelled out, "Seriously?! Are you seriously taking a piss outside my window? WTF is wrong with you?!" The reply was, "I'm sorry ma'am, I'm drunk and I can't hold it".

Wellll, the phrase "Crowbar Hotel" is a humorous mis-nomer.  In other words, not meant to mean a stable homestead.

After that embarrassing day, Landfill went on to get a job as a character at Disneyland, the one place where no one would question his random urination.

ED: You see a well groomed garden. In the middle, on a small hill, you see a gazebo.
ERIC: A gazebo? What color is it?
ED: (Pause) It's white, Eric.
ERIC: How far away is it?
ED: About fifty yards.
ERIC: How big is it?
ED: (Pause) It's about thirty feet across, fifteen feet high, with a pointed top.
ERIC: I use my sword to detect good on it.
ED: It's not good, Eric. It's a gazebo!
ERIC: (Pause) I call out to it.
ED: It won't answer. It's a gazebo!
ERIC: (Pause) I sheathe my sword and draw my bow and arrows. Does it respond in any way?
ED: No, Eric, it's a gazebo!
ERIC: I shoot it with my bow (roll to hit). What happened?
ED: There is now a gazebo with an arrow sticking out of it.
ERIC: (Pause) Wasn't it wounded?
ED: Of course not, Eric! It's a gazebo!
ERIC: (Whimper) But that was a plus three arrow!
ED: It's a gazebo, Eric, a gazebo! If you really want to try to destroy it, you could try to chop it with an axe, I suppose, or you could try to burn it, but I don't know why anybody would even try. It's a *)@#! gazebo!
ERIC: (Long pause. He has no axe or fire spells.) I run away.
ED: (Thoroughly frustrated) It's too late. You've woken up the gazebo, and it catches you and eats you.
ERIC: (Reaching for his dice) Maybe I'll roll up a fire-using mage so I can avenge my Paladin.

"Moral outrage"? Oh puh-leaze... give me a break. I can't get too worked up about some down-and-outer having a pee in public. Sometimes you just have to go when you just have to go.

Nope not sure at all. I am not a sociologist merely someone that recognizes a pattern after 4 years watching the same knuckleheads. YMMV.

My experience is about the same. Most homeless people are such because they have drug or alcohol issues and they'd rather stay homeless than seek help. "Homelessness" has become the lifestyle of choice for them. They have plenty of options if they choose to exercise them, but they don't.

I asked a homeless guy why he didn't get a bed at a nearby shelter instead of sleeping in the park, and he told me that, if you stay at the shelter, you have to make your bed in the morning and help prepare the days meals and wash the bedding. If you sleep in the park you can go to the shelter and get food without having to do anything.

I don't know where you guys are hangin where you're meeting all these really cool sounding philosophical homeless beatniks, but most homeless people I've met in Dallas/Austin over the age 29 (99%) are mentally unstable they'll ramble about batman/ghosts and do weird shiat. Yet, they bought me beer when I was underaged and some (bout 3 out of every 10) would spend the change on crack or alcohol but I think that's more of a reaction to the initial insanity that transformed itself into self medication. How's a homeless person who is massively depressed, seriously delusional, or full on schizophrenic gonna make it at a desk job. I just don't see it or even how to fix the institutions that have marginalized them, but I'm no expert. It's different when you think it's just the cops or just rich snobs who are farking them over, but when it's innate within the institution things just become so complex. I don't know..

Bad life decision to become mentally ill. Maybe he pissed off the Invisible Pink Unicorn in a previous life and this is his punishment. I'll make up whatever crazy shiat I want so I don't have to think about the problem. Shut up. Stop talking about the problem. I am not listening to you lalalalalalala...
